In many countries there is a lack of genuine panel data where specific individuals or firms are followed over time. However, repeated cross-sectional surveys may be available, where a random sample is taken from the population at consecutive points in time. In this paper we discuss the identification and estimation of panel data models from repeated cross sections. In particular, attention will be paid to linear models with fixed individual effects, to models containing lagged dependent variables and to discrete choice models.
