  33. 33. Alternative Model, Quasi-Di¤erencing We had Yit = m (Xit , αi ) + Uit (1) Identi…cation is based on the NP …rst-di¤erencing Now consider Yit = gt (Xit , αi + Uit ) (2) Identi…cation is based on the NP quasi-di¤erencing Applications: Nonparametric panel (transformation) models Duration model with multiple spells/states A class of static games of incomplete information (e.g., Common Value Auctions, Cournout with common demand parameter) Also: Yit = gt (Xit , βi Wit + Uit ) (20 ) Kirill Evdokimov (Princeton U) Nonlinear Panel Data Models 12/14/12 14 / 16
