Multidimensional Parameter Heterogeneity in Panel Data Models

No 2016-15A, Discussion Papers from School of Economics, The University of New South Wales
This article introduces a technique to estimate static or dynamic panel data models that feature two dimensions of heterogeneity in the slope and intercept parameters. It is able to consistently estimate the marginal effect for each individual observation as well as the average over a sample, and allows for correlation between the heterogeneity and the regressors. Models with two-dimensional fixed-effects in the slope parameters have long been considered interesting to economists yet intractable to estimate. Asymptotic theory establishes the consistency and asymptotic normality of the proposed estimator as N and T jointly go to infinity. Finally, Monte Carlo simulations demonstrate that the estimator performs well in environments where fixed effects and mean group estimators are inconsistent, inefficient, and severely biased.
