Special Issue: Time-Series Cross-Section Analysis

A special issue of Political Analysis, published in Spring 2007, tackles the topic of how political scientists approach modeling time-series cross-sectional data. The issue, guest-edited by Nathaniel Beck, addresses the subject as the use of TSCS data has become increasingly more frequent in the political science field over the past three decades.
