Abstract: A computationally simple bias correction for linear dynamic panel data models is proposed and its asymptotic properties are studied when the number of time periods is fixed or tends to infinity with the number of panel units. The approach can accommodate both fixed-effects and random-effects assumptions, heteroskedastic errors, as well as higher-order autoregressive models. Panel-corrected standard errors are proposed that allow for robust inference in dynamic models with cross-sectionally correlated errors. Monte Carlo experiments suggest that under the assumption of strictly exogenous regressors the bias-corrected method of moment estimator outperforms popular GMM estimators in terms of efficiency and correctly sized tests.
