Abstract or description

This paper offers methodological comments on a recent (November 2014) Economic Journal
article. The comments consider its use of a dynamic model – the inclusion of a lagged
dependent variable – and its approach to estimation. By way of critique, the authors highlight
general issues regarding dynamic panel analysis that are still less fully appreciated in the
economics of happiness literature than elsewhere in economics and other quantitative social
sciences. This discussion of methodological issues arising from dynamic estimation may be
of practical assistance to researchers new to the field and/or to dynamic modelling.
