pht(formula, data, subset, na.action, model = c("ht", "am", "bmc"), index = NULL, ...)
## S3 method for class 'pht'
summary(object, ...)
## S3 method for class 'summary.pht'
print(x, digits = max(3, getOption("digits") - 2),
     width = getOption("width"), subset = NULL, ...)

Arguments

formula

a symbolic description for the model to be estimated,

object,x

an object of class "plm",

data

a data.frame,

subset

see lm for "plm", a character or numeric vector indicating a subset of the table of coefficient to be printed for "print.summary.plm",

na.action

see lm,

model

one of "ht" for Hausman–Taylor, "am" for Amemiya–MaCurdy and "bms" for Breusch–Mizon–Schmidt,

index

the indexes,

digits

digits,

width

the maximum length of the lines in the print output,

...

further arguments.

Details

pht estimates panels models using the Hausman–Taylor estimator, Amemiya–MaCurdy estimator, or Breusch–Mizon–Schmidt estimator, depending on the argument model. The model is specified as a two–part formula, the second part containing the exogenous variables.

Value

An object of class c("pht", "plm", "panelmodel").

A "pht" object contains the same elements as plm, with a further argument called varlist which describes the typology of the variables. It has summary and print.summary methods.
