xtdpdqml: Quasi-maximum likelihood estimation of linear dynamic short-T panel-data models
United Kingdom Stata Users' Group Meetings 2016 from Stata Users Group
In this presentation, I discuss the new Stata command xtdpdqml, which implements the unconditional quasi-maximum likelihood estimators of Bhargava and Sargan (1983, Econometrica 51: 1635–1659) for linear dynamic panel models with random effects and of Hsiao, Pesaran, and Tahmiscioglu (2002, Journal of Econometrics 109: 107–150) for linear dynamic panel models with fixed effects when the number of cross-sections is large and the time dimension is fixed. The marginal distribution of the initial observations is modeled as a function of the observed variables to circumvent a short-T dynamic panel-data bias. Robust standard errors are available following the arguments of Hayakawa and Pesaran (2015, Journal of Econometrics 188: 111–134). xtdpdqml also supports standard postestimation commands, including suest, which can be used for a generalized Hausman test to discriminate between the dynamic random-effects and the dynamic fixed-effects model.
