The importance of using cluster-robust variance estimators (i.e., “clustered standard errors”) in panel models is now widely recognized. Login or. > xtreg depvar varlist, fe robust Study the time-invariant features within each panel, the relationships across panels, and how outcomes of interest change over time. That is what you want, assuming you have a reasonable large cross section. Options SE/Robust vce(oim) is usually the default for models fit using maximum likelihood. The different robust estimators for the standard errors of panel models used in applied econometric practice can all be written and computed as combinations of the same simple building blocks. <> To: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu The standard errors reported in the table of parameter estimates are the square root of the variances (diagonal elements) of the VCE. > * regression using White SEs 2009.

RE: st: Robust Standard Errors in Paneldatasets 4.1.1 Regression with Robust Standard Errors. > Petersen, M. A. If I'm correct, -ivreg2- came out in 2008, so maybe Petersen wrote his paper before -ivreg2-, but his website doesn't mention -ivreg2-. Subject: Re: st: Robust Standard Errors in Paneldatasets contemporaneous cross-panel correlation (clustering on time). Amy Dunbar In a simple panel data analysis with data on 64 firms over 8 years, I use cluster-robust standard errors (at the firm level) to evaluate significance of coefficients. Amy Dunbar - ivreg2- has a small sample correction option, so when would that be appropriate as opposed to including a time indicator variable? This paper references Petersen's Stata code. I observe important differences between clustered and non-clustered standard errors. Hence, obtaining the correct SE, is critical. See the discussion of clustering in Baum/Schaffer/Stillman papers, Stata Journal 3(1) [free] and 7(4), available in preprint form on my website. > Driscoll, J., & Kraay, A.

On his web page he states: "The routines currently written into Stata allow you to cluster by only one variable (e.g. I have a panel data set in R (time and cross section) and would like to compute standard errors that are clustered by two dimensions, because my residuals are correlated both ways. It seems that way since you said the standard errors are "robust to heteroskedasticity and autocorrelation." Two-way clustering also allows you to consider common effects hitting all firms at the same point in time. Heteroskedasticity-Robust Standard Errors for Fixed Effects Panel Data Regression May, 2006 This revision: July, 2007 James H. Stock Department of Economics, Harvard University and the NBER Mark W.

This approach allows for correlations among different firms in the same year and different years in the same firm, for example. I would look at Schaffer's -xtivreg2-, on SSC, which will allow you to estimate a model with one-way and two-way clustering (see my BOS'10 and UKSUG 2010 presentations, on my RePEc page below). > > On Oct 26, 2010, at 2:33 AM, Leon wrote: Josh: I assume that you are using a version of Stata where the "robust" option is the same as "cluster(id)," where "id" is the cross section identifier.

The conventional heteroskedasticity‐robust (HR) variance matrix estimator for cross‐sectional regression (with or without a degrees‐of‐freedom adjustment), applied to the fixed‐effects estimator for panel data with serially uncorrelated errors, is inconsistent if the number of time periods T is fixed (and greater than 2) as the number of entities n increases.

The standard errors determine how accurate is your estimation.

The -ivreg2- help states, "Users should be aware of the asymptotic requirements for the consistency of the chosen VCE," so when T is short, is the best option the parametric option? > > xtreg depvar varlist, vce(robust) Cluster-robust standard errors and hypothesis tests in panel data models James E. Pustejovsky 2020-11-03 . That is why the standard errors are so important: they are crucial in determining how many stars your table gets. Tue, 26 Oct 2010 13:24:06 +0000   Unclustered data. Robust Standard Errors in R. Stata makes the calculation of robust standard errors easy via the vce(robust) option. typical application would be panel data where one "category" is the panel and the other "category" is time; the I present a new Stata program, xtscc, that estimates pooled or-dinary least-squares/weighted least-squares regression and xed-e ects (within) regression models with Driscoll and Kraay (Review of … > > 2008. one dimension such as firm or time). Hence, I wonder which regression type and which standard errors are most applicable as they should correct for heteroscedasticity and autocorrelation. This table is taken from Chapter 11, p. 357 of Econometric Analysis of Cross Section and Panel Data, Second Edition by Jeffrey M Wooldridge. Estimating Standard Errors in Finance Panel Data Sets: Comparing Approaches. The help file above indicates that -ivreg2- does deal with both, so I'm not sure what I am missing. In xtreg, stata automatically clusters on your panel variable when you type robust (in fact, it also does this when you don't). All you need to is add the option robust to you regression command. > Daniel Hoechle. The second part deals with cluster-robust standard errors. 2008. I have used the modified Wald test to test for the presence of heteroskedasticity p values are low and hence the data does suffer from heteroskedasticity. However, the standard errors generated assume the errors are iid. "xtgls return monday january, p(c) c(p)" allows for heteroschedasticity and cross-sectional correlation across panels (countries in my example), in addition to panel-specific AR1 autocorrelation within each panel. my problem is this: I get NA where I should get some values in the computation of robust standard errors.. and they indicate that it is essential that for panel data, OLS standard errors be corrected for clustering on the individual. The conventional heteroskedasticity-robust (HR) variance matrix estimator for cross-sectional regression (with or without a degrees of freedom adjustment), applied to the fixed effects estimator for panel data with serially uncorrelated errors, is inconsistent if the number of time periods T is fixed (and greater than two) as the number of entities n increases. * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/ When I followed up on Kit's -xtivreg2_ suggestion, I found the following in the help for ivreg2: 2010. It's still not clear to me when it's ok to deal with time effects (cross-sectional correlation) parametrically by including a time indicator variable and just correct for time-series dependence (serial correlation) with cluster (firm) or vice versa. But now I am having some trouble.

Estimating Standard Errors in Finance Panel Data Sets: Comparing Approaches. I recently read these two articles about robust standard errors in panel datasets and can't figure out which SE I should use and in case of the clustered method how to apply this to Stata.
