The rst part of this note deals with estimation of xed-e ects model using the Fatality data. > xtreg depvar varlist, vce(robust) In Stata's notation, the composite error term is u (i) + e (i,t). However, the standard errors generated assume the errors are iid. The Accounting Review 85 (2):483. xtreg without the fe option is random effects, which is a.s. inappropriate for finance panels. 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". "xtgls" allows for non-iid errors. 2). I am trying to learn R after using Stata and I must say that I love it. College Station, TX: Stata press.' 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. my problem is this: I get NA where I should get some values in the computation of robust standard errors.. How to implement heteroscedasticity-robust standard errors on regressions in Stata using the robust option and how to calculate them manually. Microeconometrics using stata (Vol. Hence, I wonder which regression type and which standard errors are most applicable as they should correct for heteroscedasticity and autocorrelation. This approach allows for correlations among different firms in the same year and different years in the same firm, for example.

Sent: Tuesday, October 26, 2010 7:56 AM 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. See their papers and mine for more details and caveats. Robust Standard Errors in R. Stata makes the calculation of robust standard errors easy via the vce(robust) option. But e (i,t) can be autocorrelated. > > I found various methods to apply the regression in Stata and hope you can help me to choose the right one, if any. Kit Baum | Boston College Economics & DIW Berlin | http://ideas.repec.org/e/pba1.html The Stata regress command includes a robust option for estimating the standard errors using the Huber-White sandwich estimators. This table is taken from Chapter 11, p. 357 of Econometric Analysis of Cross Section and Panel Data, Second Edition by Jeffrey M Wooldridge. Also see Gow, I., G. Ormazabal, and D. Taylor. > one dimension such as firm or time). 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. I have a panel of 49 observations, 7 countries, 7 years, running Panel fixed effects and IV fixed effects on Stata. 2008. That is what you want, assuming you have a reasonable large cross section. Robust Inference for Regression with Clustered Data: ... Regression model … typical application would be panel data where one "category" is the panel and the other "category" is time; the Two-way clustering also allows you to consider common effects hitting all firms at the same point in time. I'm trying to figure out the commands necessary to replicate the following table in Stata. The standard errors determine how accurate is your estimation. > Driscoll, J., & Kraay, A. Review of Financial Studies 22:435-80. > * regression using Newey-West SEs Here I'm specifically trying to figure out how to obtain the robust standard errors (shown in square brackets) in column (2). The help file above indicates that -ivreg2- does deal with both, so I'm not sure what I am missing.

Robust standard errors for panel regressions with cross-sectional dependence Daniel Hoechle Department of Finance University of Basel Basel, Switzerland daniel.hoechle@unibas.ch Abstract. From 4.1.1 Regression with Robust Standard Errors. All you need to is add the option robust to you regression command. E.g. 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. Clustering allows you to deal with arbitrary heteroskedasticity across panels and aribtrary correlation within panels. Daniel Hoechle. Having said that, you are asking a theoretical question.). Amy Dunbar In xtreg, stata automatically clusters on your panel variable when you type robust (in fact, it also does this when you don't). You can browse but not post. and they indicate that it is essential that for panel data, OLS standard errors be corrected for clustering on the individual. From: owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu [mailto:owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu] On Behalf Of Christopher Baum I am trying to do a fixed effect panel regression with cluster-robust standard errors. That is why the standard errors are so important: they are crucial in determining how many stars your table gets. I have written a Stata ado file to implement this estimation procedure." 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.

Cluster-robust standard errors and hypothesis tests in panel data models James E. Pustejovsky 2020-11-03 . And like in any business, in economics, the stars matter a lot. 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). 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. Social Media; Email; Share Access; Share this article via social media. The second data set is the Mitchell Petersen’s test data for two-way clustering. 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. The standard errors reported in the table of parameter estimates are the square root of the variances (diagonal elements) of the VCE. Downloadable! Review of Economics & Statistics, 80(4), 549-560. Miller (2006) and Thompson (2009). "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. If I'm correct, -ivreg2- came out in 2008, so maybe Petersen wrote his paper before -ivreg2-, but his website doesn't mention -ivreg2-. > newey depvar varlist, lag('T-1') force On his web page he states: "The routines currently written into Stata allow you to cluster by only one variable (e.g. 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. 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. 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. * Take full advantage of the extra information that panel data provide, while simultaneously handling the peculiarities of panel data. Therefore, it aects the hypothesis testing. It seems that way since you said the standard errors are "robust to heteroskedasticity and autocorrelation." 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. The importance of using cluster-robust variance estimators (i.e., “clustered standard errors”) in panel models is now widely recognized. I observe important differences between clustered and non-clustered standard errors. Estimating Standard Errors in Finance Panel Data Sets: Comparing Approaches.
