In a panel dataset of multiple years and multiple countries, what is best practice for running correlations among variables? I know that pooling by both countries and years is not recommended. Is restricting instead by both country and year the preferred method? Or just by either one, country...
9. ### Can I use all correlation metrics also for time series?

I was using the cross correlation function in R (ccf) until now to discover correlations and lags between two time series. I was wondering if I can use all other correlation metrics for time series as well or are there any restrictions with time series? For example I want to use Spearman's...

14. ### Partial Cross-correlation function - how to compute it on R

I am getting desperate. Computing a cross-correlation function on R is easy: ccf(x,y, ...) and it's done. But what about computing a Partial cross-correlation function? It's crazy. I've been looking everywhere, but cannot find a function for doing this on R. :-(. By any chance does...
