Dynamic Panel Data Models

Paul Allison, Enrique Moral-Benito, and Richard Williams are currently working on a project entitled “Dynamic Panel Data Modeling using Maximum Likelihood.” They have prepared a Stata program called xtdpdml that provides an alternative to widely used GMM methods such as Arellano-Bond and is superior in many cases.
