What is the difference between pooled cross sectional data and panel data?

  • They seem so similar. Are they the same thing but just referred to as different names?

  • When I see panel data, I think longitudinal data, so observations collected on the same individuals at multiple times, on the same topics. Repeated cross sections should be the same topics, but you get different samples of individuals at each observation. I'd welcome other descriptions.
