The relationship between trust in mass media and the healthcare system and individual health: evidence from the AsiaBarometer Survey
"Vertical and horizontal trust, as dimensions of social capital, may be important determinants of health. As mass media campaigns have been used extensively to promote healthy lifestyles and convey health-related information, high levels of individual trust in the media may facilitate the success of such campaigns and, hence, have a positive influence on health"
Analyzing Censored and Sample-Selected Data With Tobit and Heckit Models
"Political scientists are making increasing use of the Tobit and Heckit models. This paper addresses some common problems in the application and interpretation of these models"
Taking Serial Correlation into Account in Tests of the Mean
"The comparison of means derived from samples of noisy data is a standard pan of climatology. When the data are not serially correlated the appropriate statistical tool for this task is usually the conventional Student's t-test. However, frequently data are serially correlated in climatological applications with the result that the t test in its standard form is not applicable. The usual solution to this problem is to scale the t statistic by a factor that depends upon the equivalent sample size
"These notes provide an overview of standard difference-in-differences methods that have been used to study numerous policy questions. We consider some recent advances in Hansen
(2007a,b) on issues of inference, focusing on what can be learned with various group/time period dimensions and serial independence in group-level shocks. Both the repeated cross
sections and panel data cases are considered. We discuss recent work by Athey and Imbens (2006) on nonparametric approaches to difference-in-di
Statistical inference in dynamic panel data models
"T.W. Anderson and his collaborators have made seminal contributions to inference with instrumental variables and to dynamic panel data models."
