Why Panel Data?

Cheng Hsiao

No 05.33, IEPR Working Papers from Institute of Economic Policy Research (IEPR)

Abstract: We explain the proliferation of panel data studies in terms of (i) data availability, (ii) the more heightened capacity for modeling the complexity of human behavior than a single cross-section or time series data can possibly allow, and (iii) challenging methodology. Advantages and issues of panel data modeling are also discussed.
