Hello,
Thank you so much for your reply. I aim to assess socioeconomic determinants of health inequalities in low and middle income countries. My dependent variable is Concentration Index of Under-five Mortality rate. I am pooling countries over time from 2000 to 2013, because I am also interested in how changes in inequality in health intervention coverage affect inequality in health outcome. But DHS is conducted independently in each countries, which makes the panel unbalanced. I wonder this type of heavily unbalanced data can produce unbiased estimates or not.
Thank you very much for your kind consideration and time. Your suggestions will be highly appreciated.
