Clustered sandwich estimators are used to adjust inference when errors are correlated within (but not between) clusters.

Well, there is a large literature on sandwich estimators for non-independent or clustered data beginning with Liang and Zeger (1986). Estimate the variance by taking the average of the ‘squared’ residuals , with the appropriate degrees of freedom adjustment.Code is below. 2.2. 0000020223 00000 n Computing cluster -robust standard errors is a fix for the latter issue. Clustered covariances or clustered standard errors are very widely used to account for correlated or clustered data, especially in economics, political sciences, or other social sciences. 0000004680 00000 n 0000001781 00000 n 2 0 obj 0000002349 00000 n In Lessons 10 and 11, we learned how to answer the same questions (and more) via log-linear models. Adjustment of the standard error, though, is possible by using the jackknife, leading to some kind of sandwich estimator. 2 S L i x i = ∂ ∂β () and the Hessian be H L j x i = ∂ ∂β 2 ()2 for the ith observation, i=1,.....,n.

We described the ways to perform significance tests for models of marginal homogeneity, symmetry, and agreement.
