Details

pmg is a function for the estimation of linear panel models with heterogeneous coefficients by various Mean Groups estimators. Setting argument model = "mg" specifies the standard Mean Groups estimator, based on the average of individual time series regressions. If model = "dmg" the data are demeaned cross-sectionally, which is believed to reduce the influence of common factors (and is akin to what is done in homogeneous panels when model = "within" and effect = "time"). Lastly, if model = "cmg" the CCEMG estimator is employed which is consistent under the hypothesis of unobserved common factors and idiosyncratic factor loadings; it works by augmenting the model by cross-sectional averages of the dependent variable and regressors in order to account for the common factors, and adding individual intercepts and possibly trends.

Value

An object of class c("pmg", "panelmodel") containing:

coefficients

the vector of coefficients,

residuals

the vector of residuals,

fitted.values

the vector of fitted values,

vcov

the covariance matrix of the coefficients,

df.residual

degrees of freedom of the residuals,

model

a data.frame containing the variables used for the estimation,

r.squared

numeric, the R squared,

call

the call,

indcoef

the matrix of individual coefficients from separate time series regressions.

Examples

data("Produc", package = "plm")
## Mean Groups estimator
mgmod <- pmg(log(gsp) ~ log(pcap) + log(pc) + log(emp) + unemp, data = Produc)
summary(mgmod)

## demeaned Mean Groups
dmgmod <- pmg(log(gsp) ~ log(pcap) + log(pc) + log(emp) + unemp, 
             data = Produc, model = "dmg")
summary(dmgmod)

## Common Correlated Effects Mean Groups
ccemgmod <- pmg(log(gsp) ~ log(pcap) + log(pc) + log(emp) + unemp, 
                data = Produc, model = "cmg")
summary(ccemgmod)
