Conducted by Marco Fugazza, of UNCTAD's Division on International Trade in Goods and Services, and Commodities, the objective of the workshop was to introduce participants to panel data modelling, a way to estimate and test relations based on samples containing a time series of observations for a cross section of individuals, firms, markets, countries, country-pairs etc. The workshop was highly appreciated by the participants; results from the final evaluation showed that 100 percent of the respondents felt that the workshop had fully met or exceeded their expectations.
