Estimating Standard Errors in Finance Panel Data Sets: Comparing Approaches. How to implement heteroscedasticity-robust standard errors on regressions in Stata using the robust option and how to calculate them manually. 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.

Review of Economics & Statistics, 80(4), 549-560. Daniel Hoechle. The standard errors reported in the table of parameter estimates are the square root of the variances (diagonal elements) of the VCE. Daniel Hoechle Department of Finance University of Basel Basel, Switzerland daniel.hoechle@unibas.ch: Abstract. Having said that, you are asking a theoretical question.). Estimating Standard Errors in Finance Panel Data Sets: Comparing Approaches. Estimating Standard Errors in Finance Panel Data Sets: Comparing Approaches. Here I'm specifically trying to figure out how to obtain the robust standard errors (shown in square brackets) in column (2). Also see Gow, I., G. Ormazabal, and D. Taylor. I'm trying to figure out the commands necessary to replicate the following table in Stata. "Two-way cluster-robust" means the SEs and statistics are robust to 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. "statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu" That is what you want, assuming you have a reasonable large cross section. That is why the standard errors are so important: they are crucial in determining how many stars your table gets. Cluster-robust standard errors and hypothesis tests in panel data models James E. Pustejovsky 2020-11-03 . 2009. RE: st: Robust Standard Errors in Paneldatasets It seems that way since you said the standard errors are "robust to heteroskedasticity and autocorrelation." resulting SEs are robust to arbitrary within-panel autocorrelation (clustering on panel id) and to arbitrary   > Petersen, M.

And like in any business, in economics, the stars matter a lot. newey and ivregress fail to take the panel nature of the data into account (in fact the ivregress command you give will not run on multiple panels, and the newey with undocumented -force- option is likely to think your data are one long time series). vce(opg) uses the sum of the outer product of the gradient (OPG) vectors; see[R] ml. From: owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu [mailto:owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu] On Behalf Of Christopher Baum 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. > * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/ An Introduction to Modern Econometrics Using Stata | http://www.stata-press.com/books/imeus.html (1998). College Station, TX: Stata press.' Unclustered data. The second part deals with cluster-robust standard errors. 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. I am trying to do a fixed effect panel regression with cluster-robust standard errors. 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? In Stata's notation, the composite error term is u (i) + e (i,t). The reason for robust standard errors in panel data is because the idiosyncratic errors can have heteroskedasticity or autocorrelation, or both. You are not logged in. Googling around I Robust standard errors for panel regressions with cross–sectional dependence. 2008. Hence, I wonder which regression type and which standard errors are most applicable as they should correct for heteroscedasticity and autocorrelation. Amy Dunbar 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. Therefore, it aects the hypothesis testing.

But e (i,t) can be autocorrelated. In the new implementation of the robust estimate of variance, Stata is now scaling the estimated variance matrix in order to make it less biased. I have a panel of 49 observations, 7 countries, 7 years, running Panel fixed effects and IV fixed effects on Stata. I have written a Stata ado file to implement this estimation procedure." > In Petersen, Mitchell A. The help file above indicates that -ivreg2- does deal with both, so I'm not sure what I am missing. Sent: Tuesday, October 26, 2010 7:56 AM Clustering allows you to deal with arbitrary heteroskedasticity across panels and aribtrary correlation within panels.

Thank you for considering my question. See their papers and mine for more details and caveats. College Station, TX: Stata press.' 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. > Date > * regression using White SEs * For searches and help try: > <> > The standard errors determine how accurate is your estimation. Take full advantage of the extra information that panel data provide, while simultaneously handling the peculiarities of panel data. > package first) xtscc depvar varlist, fe If you want to compute a Hausman test statistic that works also with cluster-robust standard errors you can follow the procedure outlined in Wooldridge (2010) "Econometric Analysis of Cross-Section and Panel Data".   Options SE/Robust vce(oim) is usually the default for models fit using maximum likelihood. The Accounting Review 85 (2):483. xtreg without the fe option is random effects, which is a.s. inappropriate for finance panels. HETEROSKEDASTICITY-ROBUST STANDARD ERRORS FOR FIXED EFFECTS PANEL DATA REGRESSION ... 2For example, at the time of writing, ΣˆHR−XS is the HR panel data variance estimator used in STATA and Eviews. Review of Financial Studies 22 (1), Petersen provides a link to his web site (http://www.kellogg.northwestern.edu/faculty/petersen/htm/papers/se/se_programming.htm). This approach allows for correlations among different firms in the same year and different years in the same firm, for example. This paper references Petersen's Stata code.

Kit Baum wrote: "None of what you have found deals with clustering." The importance of using cluster-robust variance estimators (i.e., “clustered standard errors”) in panel models is now widely recognized. "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. This table is taken from Chapter 11, p. 357 of Econometric Analysis of Cross Section and Panel Data, Second Edition by Jeffrey M Wooldridge.

I am about to do some multiple regressions with Panel Data so I am using the plm package.. Now I want to have the same results with plm in R as when I use the lm function and Stata when I perform a heteroscedasticity robust and entity fixed regression. Now, pooled OLS leaves u (i) in the error term, which is an obvious source of autocorrelation. 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. 2010. The e-mail addresses that you supply to use this service will not be used for any other purpose without your consent. "xtgls" allows for non-iid errors. Robust regression is an alternative to least squares regression when data is contaminated with outliers or influential observations and it can also be used for the purpose of detecting influential observations. > Robust Standard Errors in R. Stata makes the calculation of robust standard errors easy via the vce(robust) option. If I'm correct, -ivreg2- came out in 2008, so maybe Petersen wrote his paper before -ivreg2-, but his website doesn't mention -ivreg2-. In xtreg, stata automatically clusters on your panel variable when you type robust (in fact, it also does this when you don't). > * regression using Newey-West SEs and they indicate that it is essential that for panel data, OLS standard errors be corrected for clustering on the individual. In contrary to other statistical software, such as R for instance, it is rather simple to calculate robust standard errors in STATA.
