Hello World.

I have a micro data set for my local CPI basket structured as (panel data with varying monthly periods over set products) in Eviews.

I however, need to run a Logit model on a number of covariates which include a set of dummies. Eviews is limited in this regard (in that it cannot run the logit regression for the panel data). I gather that I could do this in STATA but I would prefer to use a software that I would not have to pay in excess of $1500 especially considering my time constraint (a short one) and need to find a solution now.

So is there any package in "R" that will assist me in doing the relevant analysis. Note. I am by job description an Economist, but by no means an Econometician. Please help.

I have been browsing the list of CRAN Packages as shown in the link below but not sure which may be appropriate :

http://cran.r-project.org/web/packages/available_packages_by_name.html

Kindest regards everyone!
