Understanding Panel Survey Data
The aim of the course is to introduce students to the techniques used in the analysis of “cross-sectional” panel data sets, such as the National Income Dynamics Study (NIDS). The course will begin with an introduction to using and analysing panel data. The course will cover how panel analysis differs from cross sectional analysis, and an application in which students learn how one can construct transition matrices from panel data.
