Stata command for One-way Wild
Cluster Bootstrap Robust Standard Errors (with
- Stata user-written command boottest written by the following authors.
- David Roodman, James MacKinnon, Morten Nielsen, Matthew Webb (2018), "Fast and Wild Bootstrap Inference in Stata using boottest".
Code for Two-way Cluster Robust
- For IV and hence OLS: Stata addon ivreg2 due to Christopher F Baum, Mark E Schaffer, Steven Stillman. And also xtivreg2
- For OLS our Stata code cgmreg.ado and example of use cgmreg_example.do
Robust Inference for Dyadic Data
A. Colin Cameron and Douglas L. Miller, "Robust Inference for Dyadic Data", December 31, 2014.
[Paper presented at the January 2015 ASSA meetings].
Code for Dyadic Cluster Robust Standard
- For OLS our Stata code is regdyad2.ado
This is very much a "beta version". We are in the midst of editing and tweaking it, but we believe that it runs and works. The syntax to use is:
regdyad2 yvar xvars, dyads(ID_var_1 ID_var_2)
