From Panel to Dynamic Panel Data Models: What, Where, When and How?

6 October 2023  

Panel data, often referred to as longitudinal data, presents a rich source of information for researchers and analysts. As against the cross-sectional data, which comprises of observations of several units at a single point in time, the panel data comprises of repeated observations over time on sets of several units. One of the main advantages of panel data is that it includes additional information possessing high variability with a likelihood of more efficient outcomes.  

This talk intended to broaden the understanding around the fundamentals of panel data, its estimation techniques and application in multiple research domains. Furthermore, it aimed to introduce the concept of dynamics in panel data models and its relevance to current research.
