XTCDF: Stata module to perform Pesaran's CD-test for cross-sectional dependence in panel context

Statistical Software Components from Boston College Department of Economics

Abstract: xtcdf calculates the CD-test for cross-sectional dependence described in Pesaran (2004) and Pesaran (2015) for a varlist of any length. The test can best be seen as an investigation of the mean correlation between panel units. The main insight of Pesaran (2004) is that a transformation of the sum of pairwise correlations between panel units is standardnormally distrubuted. The null hypothesis is either strict cross-sectional independence (Pesaran, 2004) or weak cross-sectional dependence (Pesaran, 2015).
