Estimates fixed effects binary choice models (logit and probit) with potentially many individual fixed effects and computes average partial effects. Incidental parameter bias can be reduced with a bias-correction proposed by Hahn and Newey (2004)

bife 0.5 (03.03.2018)

[Major Changes]

- Changed the handling of
`factor()`

in the formula interface. This should now be more in line with what users expect. - Removed
`fixed()`

, since you can use`factor()`

now.

[Minor Changes]

- Realigned
`print.summary.bife()`

.

bife 0.4 (06.05.2017)

[Bug fix]

- fixed a memory-access error in
`bife.cpp`

.

bife 0.3 (04.05.2017)

[Major Changes]

- Added a generic function
`predict()`

. - Additional downgrades to ensure compability with g++ 4.4.x.
- Downgraded compiled code from C++11 to C++98. This ensures compability with older compilers.
- Removed jackknife bias-correction from
`bife()`

and`apeff_bife()`

. `apeff_bife()`

now uses the full sample instead of a sub-sample of indiviuals with a varying response.

[Minor Changes]

- Changed default argument
`discrete`

of`apeff_bife()`

to`NULL`

. - Changed default argument
`bias_corr`

of`apeff_bife()`

to`"ana"`

.

[Bug fix]

- Fixed an issue where
`vcov()`

was not able to distinguish between corrected and uncorrected coefficients.

bife 0.2 (20.02.2017)

[Major Changes]

- Added a function
`fixed()`

to model additional fixed-effects. See documentation for further details. - Re-structured compiled code to optimize package size.
- Changed some function and argument names to common naming convention. For instance
`apeff.bife(..., bias.corr = "ana")`

is now`apeff_bife(..., bias_corr = "ana")`

. - Downgraded compiled code from C++11 to C++98. This ensures compability with older compilers.

[Minor Changes]

- Added comments and renamed variables such that they are in line with the notation of the corresponding working paper.
- Fixed some typos in documentation.

[Bug fix]

- Fixed an issue where
`bife()`

was not able to fit a model with just one explanatory variable. - Corrected computation of degrees of freedom.
