It has been just a little more than a day since I announced my new R package, `panelr`, to the wider world. There's at least one comparable package for R, called `plm`, which is very good and should be particularly appealing for economists. This leads to the understandable question as to how `panelr` differs from `plm`.
It has been a long time coming, but my R package panelr is now on CRAN. Since I started work on it well over a year ago, it has become essential to my own workflow and I hope it can be useful for others.
panel_data object class One key contribution, that I hope can help other developers, is the creation of a panel_data object class. It is a modified tibble, which is itself a modified data.
