Main Article Content


We develop an R package panelView and a Stata package panelview for panel data visualization. They are designed to assist causal analysis with panel data and have three main functionalities: (1) They plot the treatment status and missing values in a panel dataset; (2) they visualize the temporal dynamics of the main variables of interest; and (3) they depict the bivariate relationships between a treatment variable and an outcome variable either by unit or in aggregate. These tools can help researchers better understand their panel datasets before conducting statistical analysis.
