"This is a definitive book written by one of the architects of modern panel data econometrics. It provides both a practical introduction to the subject matter, as well as a thorough discussion of the underlying statistical principles without taxing the reader too greatly. Since its first publication in 1995, it has quickly become a standard accompanying text in advanced econometrics courses around the world, and a major reference for researchers doing empirical work with longitudinal data." - Professor Kajal Lahiri"Econometric Analysis of Panel Data is a classic in its field, used by researches and graduate students throughout the world. In this new edition, Professor Baltagi has incorporated extensive new material, reflecting recent advances in the panel data literature in areas such as dynamic (including non-stationary) and limited dependent variable panel data models. It is an invaluable read for anyone interested in panel data." - Professor Gary Koop"Panel data econometrics is in its ascendancy, combining the power of cross section averaging with all the subtleties of temporal and spatial dependence.

Phillips"This book is the most comprehensive work available on panel data. It is written by one of the leading contributors to the field, and is notable for its encyclopedic coverage and its clarity of exposition. It is useful to theorists and to people doing applied work using panel data. It is valuable as a text for a course in panel data, as a supplementary text for more general courses in econometrics, and as a reference." - Professor Peter Schmidt"In this new edition Baltagi covers many of he recent developments in the literature on econometric analysis of panel data models. it is aimed at graduate students but many of its introductory chapters cold also be helpful to advanced undergraduates and applied researchers across many disciplines including economics, finance, sociology, and politics. Baltagi has a gift of explaining difficult concepts and ideas in a simple language, accessible to researchers and students alike. It is a timely and welcome addition to a growing literature." - Professor M.
