### How exactly does a “random effects model” in econometrics relate to mixed models outside of econometrics?

I used to think that "random effects model" in econometrics corresponds to a "mixed model with random intercept" outside of econometrics, but now I am not sure. Does it? Econometrics uses terms like "...

### Longitudinal data: baseline effect versus random intercept

The variable $Y$ is measured at time points $t_1$, $\ldots$, $t_9$ for each of five objects. Also available for each object is the value of $Y$ at time $t_0 = 0$ (baseline). Thus, the sample size is \$...
