about

This volume collects seven of Nerlove's previously published essays on panel data econometrics written over the past thirty-five years, with a new essay on the history of the subject, which began with George Biddell Airey's monograph in 1861. Since his 1966 Econometrica paper with Pietro Balestra, panel data and methods of econometric analysis have become important in the discipline. The principal factors in the research environment affecting the future course of panel data econometrics are the growth in the computational power available to the individual researcher at his desktop and the ready availability of data sets via the Internet. The best way to formulate statistical models for inference is motivated and shaped by substantive problems and our understanding of the processes generating the data at hand to resolve them. The essays illustrate the substantive context in shaping appropriate methods of inference and the increasing importance of computer-intensive methods.

Editorial Reviews

"Marc Nerlove's history of panel data econometrics is a welcome contribution to narrowing the gap between econometric theory and empirical practice. His thought- provoking account of the early developments in fixed and random effects models masterfully brings together economic and statistical considerations. It will certainly not leave readers indifferent. This volume also brings together Nerlove's pioneering articles on dynamic random effects models, and his more recent reflections on empirical country growth analysis, likelihood inference, and panel data methodology. The three parts together become a valuable reference source and give us a comprehensive picture of the working of a very influential mind in the shaping of the field of panel data econometrics."
