  • In this paper, we propose the use of Dynamic Conditional Score (DCS) count panel data models. We compare the statistical performance of the static model with different dynamic models: finite distributed lag, exponential feedback and different DCS models. For DCS, we consider random walk or quasi-autoregressive dynamics. We use panel data for a large cross section of United States firms for period 1979-2000, and the Poisson quasi-maximum likelihood estimator with fixed effects. The empirical results suggest that DCS has the best statistical performance. (C) 2016 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
