Abstract

In this paper, I calculate the semiparametric information bound in two dynamic panel data logit models with individual specific effects. In such a model without any other regressors, it is well known that the conditional maximum likelihood estimator yields a √n-consistent estimator. In the case where the model includes strictly exogenous continuous regressors, Honoré and Kyriazidou (2000, Econometrica 68, 839–874) suggest a consistent estimator whose rate of convergence is slower than √n. Information bounds calculated in this paper suggest that the conditional maximum likelihood estimator is not efficient for models without any other regressor and that √n-consistent estimation is infeasible in more general models.
