Abstract: xtcsd tests for cross-sectional dependence in Fixed Effects or Random Effects models. xtcsd tests the hypothesis of cross-sectional independence in panel data models with small T and large N by implementing two semi-parametric tests proposed by Friedman (1937) and Frees (1995, 2004), as well as the parametric testing procedure proposed by Pesaran (2004). xtcsd with option pesaran can handle balanced as well as unbalanced panels.
