### Details

`PSID1982`

is the cross-section for the year 1982 taken from a larger panel data set
`PSID7682`

for the years 1976–1982, originating from Cornwell and Rupert (1988).
Baltagi (2002) just uses the 1982 cross-section; hence `PSID1982`

is available as a
standalone data set because it was included in AER prior to the availability of the
full `PSID7682`

panel version.

### Source

The data is from Baltagi (2002).

### Examples

```
data("PSID1982")
plot(density(PSID1982$wage, bw = "SJ"))
## Baltagi (2002), Table 4.1
earn_lm <- lm(log(wage) ~ . + I(experience^2), data = PSID1982)
summary(earn_lm)
## Baltagi (2002), Table 13.1
union_lpm <- lm(I(as.numeric(union) - 1) ~ . - wage, data = PSID1982)
union_probit <- glm(union ~ . - wage, data = PSID1982, family = binomial(link = "probit"))
union_logit <- glm(union ~ . - wage, data = PSID1982, family = binomial)
## probit OK, logit and LPM rather different.
