STICERD Econometrics Seminar Series

Moment Conditions for Dynamic Panel Logit Models with Fixed Effects

Martin Weidner (USC), joint with Bo Honore

Thursday 17 March 2022 14:00 - 15:30

Many of our seminars and public events this year will continue as in person or as hybrid (online and in person) events. Please check our website listings and Twitter feed @STICERD_LSE for updates.

Unless otherwise specified, in-person seminars are open to the public.

Those unable to join the seminars in-person are welcome to participate via zoom if the event is hybrid.


About this event

This paper builds on Bonhomme (2012) to develop a method to systematically construct moment conditions for dynamic panel data logit models with fixed effects. After introducing the moment conditions obtained in this way, we explore their implications for identification and estimation of the model parameters that are common to all individuals, and we find that those common model parameters are estimable at root-n rate for many more dynamic panel logit models than has been appreciated by the existing literature. In the case where the model contains one lagged variable, the moment conditions in Kitazawa (2013, 2016) are transformations of a subset of ours. A GMM estimator that is based on the moment conditions is shown to perform well in Monte Carlo simulations and in an empirical illustration to labor force participation.

STICERD Econometrics seminars are held on Thursdays in term time at 14.00-15.30, ONLINE, unless specified otherwise.

Seminar organisers: Professor Tai Otsu and Dr. Vassilis Hajivassiliou.
