This (online) course presents panel data estimation techniques and their applications in STATA. The course is organized into five modules. Module 1 introduces panel data, particularly how panel data structure looks like and the basic panel data model. Module 2 demonstrates how to import excel data in STATA, declare your data as panel in STATA, test whether panel data modeling is really needed for your data, and how to keep track of your activities in STATA. Module 3 presents basic (static) panel data models including the famous random and fixed effects model and how to determine which of the two models is appropriate for your data. Module 4 presents advanced (dynamic) panel data models based on generalized method of moments (GMM) – often used to mitigate endogeneity concerns. Module 5 concludes the course with a summary of learning outcomes, ways to export STATA output to MS Word and some useful references for panel data analysis. In each module there is an exercise to test your understanding of the topics covered.

Effective for beginners
If you are considering a course that teaches you the concept of Panel data analysis in Stata from the beginning with a practical example then this might be the best course to take. Specially the do files were very helpful but I think it would be better if two different data sets were used in different examples.
Content is good but sound is low
The content is good but the sound is very low. N.B: I completed the course on October 28, 2020.
