To: All students and staff members,

After careful consideration as well as consultation with stakeholders, the University has decided to replace all face-to-face teaching with online teaching and assessment with effect from 18 November 2019 until the end of the teaching semester on 13 December 2019. If individual teachers, after consultation with students, wish to employ small-group interactive teaching, the University will provide the necessary assistance to realise such objective. Details of these arrangements will be announced shortly.

IIDS Workshop: Important considerations in working panel dynamic models


IIDS Workshop: Important considerations in working panel dynamic models

Date: 16 April 2019 (Tue)

Time: 19:00 – 21:00

Venue: Room 205, Main Building

Abstract: This workshop discusses three important issues arising from analyzing panel dynamic models: (1) Initial value distribution; (2) Fixed versus random effects specification; and (3) Relative sample size between the cross-section dimension, N, and the time series dimension, T. It highlights the difference between the likelihood approach and the method of moments approach in view of these three issues. The focus will be on consistency, efficiency and asymptotic unbiasedness.
