  Description     : set of estimators and tests for panel data econometrics

This R package intends to make the estimation of linear panel models
straightforward. It provides functions to estimate a wide variety of models and
to make (robust) inference.

The main functions to estimate models are:
 - plm: panel data estimators using lm on transformed data,
 - pgmm: generalized method of moments (GMM) estimation for panel data,
 - pvcm: variable coefficients models for panel data,
 - pmg: mean groups (MG), demeaned MG and common correlated effects (CCEMG)

Next to the model estimation functions, the package offers several functions
for statistical tests related to panel data/models.

Multiple functions for (robust) variance–covariance matrices are at hand as
well. The package also provides data sets to demonstrate functions and to
replicate some text book/paper results.

This package is needed for fixing the autopkgtest of r-cran-aer. It will be
maintained within the r-pkg-team at
