Bootstrapping Error Component Models

  • Michael K Andersson
  • Sune Karlsson


This paper proposes several resampling algorithms suitable for error component models and evaluates them in the context of bootstrap testing. In short, all the algorithms work well and lead to tests with correct or close to correct size. There is thus little or no reason not to use the bootstrap with error component models.

Keywords: Panel data; Bootstrap; Bootstrap test; Resampling.
