Empirical Methods in Legal Research: Longitudinal Research Settings
- Friday 29 October 2021
- In Leiden (location details will follow) and online
Peter van der Zwan (Department of Business Studies) will discuss longitudinal research settings in the first online-offline hybrid session of the series Empirical Methods in Legal Research. Longitudinal research settings refer to panel datasets, that is, datasets with repeated observations for the same individual, firm or country. For example, individuals can be followed for various years to retrieve information about their perceptions of the legal environment in their country, and the developments over time. In his talk, Van der Zwan will present various methods for analyzing panel (or longitudinal) data with legal applications.
He studied Econometrics and obtained his PhD at Erasmus University Rotterdam (School of Economics). He has been affiliated with Leiden Law School (Department of Business Studies) since 2017. He has published mainly quantitative studies in the area of entrepreneurship. You can find these studies on this link. You can also read van der Zwan’s contributions on data analysis in the Leiden Law Methods Portal.
