Abstract

Misspecification effects (meffs) measure the inflation of the sampling variance of an estimator as a result of the use of complex sampling schemes. Many longitudinal social survey designs employ multi-stage sampling, leading to some clustering of the sample and to meffs greater than one. For a model for panel data we consider methods for estimating parameters which allow for complex schemes. An empirical study using longitudinal data from the British Household Panel Survey is conducted, and a simulation study is performed.
