Estimation of a Factor-Augmented Linear Model with Applications Using Student Achievement Data

  title={Estimation of a Factor-Augmented Linear Model with Applications Using Student Achievement Data},
  author={Matthew Harding and Carlos Lamarche and Chris Muris},
In many longitudinal settings, economic theory does not guide practitioners on the type of restrictions that must be imposed to solve the rotational indeterminacy of factor-augmented linear models. We study this problem and offer several novel results on identification using internally generated instruments. We propose a new class of estimators and establish large sample results using recent developments on clustered samples and high-dimensional models. We carry out simulation studies which…

This paper presents a new approach to estimation and inference in panel data models with a general multifactor error structure. The unobserved factors and the individual-specific errors are allowed

We establish the consistency and asymptotic normality for a class of estimators that are linear combinations of a set of $\sqrt n$ -consistent nonlinear estimators whose cardinality increases with

Asymptotic theory for clustered samples

We provide a complete asymptotic distribution theory for clustered data with a large number of groups, generalizing the classic laws of large numbers, uniform laws, central limit theory, and

A Note on the Importance of Normalizations in Dynamic Latent Factor Models of Skill Formation

In this paper we highlight an important property of the translog production function for the identification of treatment effects in a model of latent skill formation. We show that when using a

A Linear Estimator for Factor-Augmented Fixed-T Panels With Endogenous Regressors

Abstract A novel method-of-moments approach is proposed for the estimation of factor-augmented panel data models with endogenous regressors when T is fixed. The underlying methodology involves

Identification of the linear factor model

Abstract This paper provides several new results on identification of the linear factor model. The model allows for correlated latent factors and dependence among the idiosyncratic errors. I also

Factor analysis by instrumental variables methods

Three alternative estimation procedures for factor analysis based on the instrumental variables method are presented. These procedures are justified by the method of least squares. Formulas for
