Advances in Econometrics


Often applied econometricians are faced with working with data that is less than ideal. The data may be observed with gaps in it, a model may suggest variables that are observed at different frequencies, and sometimes econometric results are very fragile to the inclusion or omission of just a few observations in the sample. Papers in this volume discuss new econometric techniques for addressing these problems.
List of contributors. Introduction (T.B. Fomby, R. Carter Hill). Testing for random individual and time effects using unbalanced panel data (B.H. Baltagi et al.).

Simulation of multinomial probit probabilities and imputation of missing data (V. Lavy et al.). Temporal disaggregation, missing observations, outliers, and forecasting: a unifying non-model based procedure (M. Marcellino).
