Abstract: Professor Cheng Hsiao has revised and updated his highly regarded 1986 monograph on the Analysis of Panel Data. Empirical analyses of panel data—data in which a cross-section of people, firms, countries or other observational units are followed over time—have become increasingly common in social science research over the last two decades. A large part of this growth is undoubtedly due to books, like Professor Hsiao's first edition, that painstakingly cataloged and examined methods for estimating panel models. The growth also stems from the increased availability of longitudinal data sets, the implementation of panel estimation routines into commercial software packages, and the development of new and more robust statistical methods. Professor Hsiao has contributed to many of these methodological developments and discusses them in his book.
