Some Current Issues in the Statistical Analysis of Spillovers
Abstract: Spillover phenomena are usually statistically estimated on
the basis of regional and temporal panel data. In this paper we review and
investigate exploratory and confirmatory statistical panel data techniques.
We illustrate the methods by calculations in the stetting of the well known
Research and Development Spillover study by Coe and Helpman (1995). It will
be demonstrated that alternative estimation techniques that are well
compatible with the data can lead to opposite conclusions.
