The Bankwest Curtin Economics Centre and the School of Economics and Finance at Curtin Business School welcome you to the 22nd International Panel Data Conference.

The aim of the conference is to bring together economists, econometricians, statisticians and social scientists interested in or working on panel data issues. The conference provides an active forum for researchers to discuss their findings, seek feedback, exchange idea and promote active collaboration in all areas of panel data analysis. We are delighted to host Professor Stéphane Bonhomme (Chicago), Professor William Greene (NYU) and Professor Jerry Hausman (MIT) as keynote speakers.
