One chief benefit of panel data is that it enables researchers
to deal with unobserved heterogeneity among subjects
which remains constant over time (i.e., fixed effects) that
traditional cross-sectional methods generally cannot. The
goal this workshop is to familiarize students and interested
scholars with how we might begin to conceptualize fixed
effects estimation, and learn what the benefits of such panel
models provide to the researcher.
