MPRA Paper from University Library of Munich, Germany

Abstract: A particularly useful approach for analyzing pooled cross sectional and time series data is Swamy's random coefficient panel data (RCPD) model. This paper examines the performance of Swamy's estimators and tests associated with this model by using Monte Carlo simulation. The Monte Carlo study shed some light into how well the Swamy's estimate perform in small, medium, and large samples, in cases when the regression coefficients are fixed, random, and mixed. The Monte Carlo simulation results suggest that the Swamy's estimate perform well in small samples if the coefficients are random and but it does not when regression coefficients are fixed or mixed. But if the samples sizes are medium or large, the Swamy's estimate performs well when the regression coefficients are fixed, random, or mixed.
