Abstract: An instrumental variables (IV) estimator based on aggregated nonlinear moment conditions is proposed in order to estimate the autoregressive parameter in linear dynamic panel data models. As the IV-estimator may converge to two distinct solutions, we provide a weighting scheme to identify the correct solution. The derivation of the large sample properties of the proposed estimator is underlined by Monte Carlo results.
