A step-by-step explanation of how to fit a linear model. Here we cover GLMs (Generalized Linear Models) but focus on the Poisson link with a large number of fixed effects and work with datasets that we have to download and join to produce a final dataset to explore the effects of distance, contiguity and colonial history on exports.

You can read more about the topics covered in:

  1. Linear Models with R (
  2. R for Data Science ( for the joins part
  3. Fixest documentation ( to explore more about fepois()
