ECON4954: Topics in Analysis of Panel Data

Research in economics, finance, marketing and accounting has been enriched by increased availability of panel data. A 'panel' refers to the pooling of observations on a cross section of households, countries, firms or individuals over several time periods, offering major advantages over conventional cross-sectional or time series data sets. This unit teaches students a comprehensive set of tools for the analysis of panel data, enabling students to both critically assess and contribute to applied economic research.
