9. Computed Fixed Effects Parameters

10. Logit Fixed Effects Models Conditional and Unconditional FE ? Logit, conditional vs. unconditional Logit ; Lhs = doctor ; Rhs = X ; Pds = _groupti \$ (Conditional) Logit ; Lhs = doctor ; Rhs = X ; Pds = _groupti ; Fixed \$

11. With T ≈ 5, IP Seems Tolerable

12. Hausman Test for Fixed Effects ? Logit: Hausman test for fixed effects ? Logit ; Lhs = doctor ; Rhs = X ; Pds = _groupti \$ Matrix ; Bf = B ; Vf = Varb \$ Logit ; Lhs = doctor ; Rhs = X,One \$ Calc ; K = Col(X) \$ Matrix ; Bp = b(1:K) ; Vp = Varb(1:K,1:K) \$ Matrix ; Db = Bf - Bp ; DV = Vf - Vp ; List ; Hausman = Db'<DV>Db \$ Calc ; List ; Ctb(.95,k) \$

13. Random Effects vs Random Constant ? Random effects ? Quadrature Based (Butler and Moffitt) Estimator Probit ; Lhs = doctor ; Rhs = X,One ; Random ; Pds = _groupti \$ Calc ; List ; RhoQ = rho \$ ? Simulation Based Estimator Probit ; Lhs = doctor ; Rhs = X,one ; RPM ; Pds = _groupti ; Fcn = One(N) ; Halton ; Pts = 25 \$ Calc ; ks = col(x)+2 \$ Calc ; List ; RhoRP = b(ks)^2/(1+b(ks)^2) ; RhoQ \$

14. Using Matrix Algebra Namelists with the current sample serve 2 major functions: (1) Define lists of variables for model estimation (2) Define the columns of matrices built from the data. NAMELIST ; X = a list ; Z = a list … \$ Set the sample any way you like. Observations are now the rows of all matrices. When the sample changes, the matrices change. Lists may be anything, may contain ONE, may overlap (some or all variables) and may contain the same variable(s) more than once

15. Matrix Functions Matrix Product: MATRIX ; XZ = X’Z \$ Moments and Inverse MATRIX ; XPX = X’X ; InvXPX = <X’X> \$ Moments with individual specific weights in variable w. Σiwi xixi’ = X’[w]X. [Σiwi xixi’ ]-1 = <X’[w]X> Unweighted Sum of Rows in a Matrix Σi xi = 1’X Column of Sample Means (1/n) Σi xi = 1/n * X’1 or MEAN(X) (Matrix function. There are over 100 others.) Weighted Sum of rows in matrix Σiwi xi = 1’[w]X

16. Normality Test for Probit Thanks to Joachim Wilde, Univ. Halle, Germany for suggesting this.

17. Normality Test for Probit NAMELIST ; XI = One,... \$ CREATE ; yi = the dependent variable \$ PROBIT ; Lhs = yi ; Rhs = Xi ; Prob = Pfi \$ CREATE ; bxi = b'Xi ; fi = N01(bxi) \$ CREATE ; zi3 = -1/2*(bxi^2 - 1) ; zi4 = 1/4*(bxi*(bxi^2+3)) \$ NAMELIST ; Zi = Xi,zi3,zi4 \$ CREATE ; di = fi/sqr(pfi*(1-pfi)) ; ei = yi - pfi ; eidi = ei*di ; di2 = di*di \$ MATRIX ; List ; LM = 1'[eidi]Zi * <ZI'[di2]Zi> * Zi'[eidi]1 \$

18. Endogenous Variable in Probit Model PROBIT ; Lhs = y1, y2 ; Rh1 = rhs for the probit model,y2 ; Rh2 = exogenous variables for y2 \$ SAMPLE ; All \$ CREATE ; GoodHlth = Hsat > 5 \$ PROBIT ; Lhs = GoodHlth,Hhninc ; Rh1 = One,Female,Hhninc ; Rh2 = One,Age,Educ \$

19. Random Parameters Model ? Random parameters specification ?

21. Latent Class Models ? Latent class models Namelist ; X = one,educ,hhninc Sample ; All \$ Logit ; Lhs = doctor ; Rhs = X ; LCM ; Pds=_groupti ; Pts = 3 \$ Logit ; Lhs = doctor ; Rhs = X ; LCM = female,age ; Pds=_groupti ; Pts = 3 \$ Logit ; Lhs = doctor ; Rhs = X ; LCM ; Pds=_groupti ; Pts = 4 \$ Logit ; Lhs = doctor ; Rhs = X ; LCM ; Pds=_groupti ; Pts = 5 \$

22. Fixed and Random Effects Poisson or NegBin ;PDS=setting Fixed Effects • Default is a conditional esitmator • ;FEM uses the unconditional estimator • The two are algebraically identical but use different algorithms Random Effects • Use ; RANDOM • Can be fit as a random parameters model with just a random constant

23. Random Parameters Poisson • ; LHS = dependent variable • ; RHS = independent variable(s) • ; PDS = setting (may be ;PDS=1) • ; RPM ; PTS = number of Points • ; Halton (for smarter integration method) • ; Correlated if desired to fit correlated parameters model • ; FCN = variable(n) , variable(n), … to indicate which parameters are random

24. Latent Class Poisson (or NEGBIN) • ; LHS = dependent variable • ; RHS = independent variable(s) • ; LCM for a latent class model ; LCM = variables if probabilities are heterogeneous • ; PDS = setting (may be ;PDS=1) • ; PTS = number of latent classes
