Economics Letters, 2011, vol. 112, issue 2, 148-150

Abstract: This paper considers an estimation method for a binary panel model with incidental parameters as individual effects. The necessary condition for the conditional maximum likelihood approach proposed by Andersen (1970) is investigated and we show that unique sufficient statistics exist only for logit models in a two-wave panel.
