Econometrics and income inequality by Emmanuel Flachaire( Book )

5 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 184 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This Special Issue is devoted to the econometric analysis of income inequality and income distributions. Given the recent surge of inequality research, this Special Issue seeks to combine both theoretical and applied contributions which advance the econometric analysis of income inequality and income distributions. Possible topics include, but are not limited to, statistical inference for inequality measurement, inequality measurement with complex survey data, parametric or nonparametric modeling of income distributions, statistical decomposition methodology, methods to investigate the determinants of distributional change, causal inference in inequality measurement, and applications of such methods to substantive research questions in different fields of economics
Non-parametric econometrics by Ibrahim Ahamada( Book )

11 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 162 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book allows those with a basic knowledge of econometrics to learn the main nonparametric and semiparametric techniques used in econometric modelling, and how to apply them correctly. It looks at kernel density estimation, kernel regression, splines, wavelets, and mixture models, and provides useful empirical examples throughout. Using empirical application, several economic topics are addressed, including income distribution, wage equation, economic convergence, the Phillips curve, interest rate dynamics, returns volatility, and housing prices. A helpful appendix also explains how to implement the methods using R

Political versus economic institutions in the growth process by Emmanuel Flachaire( Book )

6 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After a decade of research on the relationship between institutions and growth, scholars in this field seem to be divided. Economic institutions perform well in growth regressions and a body of literature argues that this supports the key importance of institutions for development. Other authors maintain that the type of constraints that the recent theoretical literature describes are the more stable political institutions, and these have been found to play no role in empirical growth analyses. In this paper we re-examine the role that institutions play in the growth process using cross-section and panel data for both developed and developing economies over the period 1970-2000. Our results indicate that the data is best described by an econometric model with two growth regimes. Political institutions are the key determinant of which growth regime an economy belongs to, while economic institutions have a direct impact on growth rates within each regime. These findings support the hierarchy of institutions hypothesis, whereby political institutions set the stage in which economic institutions and policies operate. -- growth ; institutions ; cross-country regressions ; mixture regressions
Sensitivity of inequality measures to extreme values by Frank A Cowell( Book )

7 editions published between 2002 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We examine the sensitivity of estimates and inequality indices to extreme values, in the sense of their robustness properties and of their statistical performance. We establish that these measures are very sensitive to the properties of the income distribution. Estimation and inference can be dramatically affected, especially when the tail of the income distribution is heavy

The wild bootstrap, tamed at last by Emmanuel Flachaire( Book )

3 editions published between 2001 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Various versions of the wild bootstrap are studied as applied to regression models with heteroskedastic errors. It is shown that some versions can be qualified as amp;apos'tamedamp;apos', in the sense that the statistic bootstrapped is asymptotically independent of the distribution of the wild bootstrap DGP. This can, in one very specific case, lead to perfect bootstrap inference, and leads to substantial reduction in the error in the rejection probability of a bootstrap test much more generally. However, the version of the wild bootstrap with this desirable property does not benefit from the skewness correction afforded by the most popular version of the wild bootstrap in the literature. Edgeworth expansions and simulation experiments are used to show why this defect does not prevent the preferred version from having the smallest error in rejection probability in small and medium-sized samples. It is concluded that this preferred version should always be used in practice
Econometric analysis of subjective well-being, preference, perception and dynamics by Zhou Xun( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This dissertation studies option variables. These opinions cover specially economic questions such as the level of wellbeing, financial situations, the minimum income question and the preference for redistribution. The treatment of these opinion variables and their relation to conventional economic questions such as income level or dynamics requires the use of special micro-econometric models. In this dissertation, the dynamics panel models are used to study the job status and income mobility. In the 6 chapter, we discuss the dynamic Tobit model with an emphasis on initial conditions. The choice between fixed or random effect is another question. Because subjective variables are ordinal and discrete, the identification of fixed effects is problematic. Random effects are better identified while the estimation difficulty increases with the integration dimension. To solve that, I use intensively simulation method in the study of dynamic multinomial logit model or dynamic tobit model. It is also been applied in the trivariate probit model to measure the conditional correlations among more than 2 ordinal variables

On the empirical measurement of inequality by Ignacio Flores( )

1 edition published in 2019 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 1st chapter presents historical series of Chilean top income shares over a period of half a century, mostly using data from tax statistics and national accounts. The study contradicts evidence based on survey data, according to which inequality has fallen constantly over the past 25 years. Rather, it changes direction, increasing from around the year 2000. Chile ranks as one of the most unequal countries among both OECD and Latin American countries over the whole period of study. The 2nd chapter measures the underestimation of factor income in distributive data. I find that households receive only half of national gross capital income,as opposed to corporations. Due to heterogeneous non-response and misreporting, Surveys only capture 20% of it, vs. 70% of labor income. This understates inequality estimates, which become insensitive to the capital share and its distribution. I formalize this system based on accounting identities. I then compute marginal effects and contributions to changes in fractile shares. The 3rd chapter, presents a method to adjust surveys. These generally fail to capturethe top of the income distribution. It has several advantages over previous ones: it is consistent with standard survey calibration methods; it has explicit probabilistic foundations and preserves the continuity of density functions; it provides an option to overcome the limitations of bounded survey-supports; and it preserves the microdata structure of the survey
Les méthodes du bootstrap et l'inférence robuste à l'hétéroscédasticité by Emmanuel Flachaire( Book )

2 editions published between 1998 and 2000 in French and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La qualité de l'analyse économétrique dépend en tout état de cause de la fiabilité des statistiques de tests employées. L'interprétation nécessite de connaître les distributions de probabilité de celles-ci. Malheureusement, dans la pratique ces lois sont la plupart du temps inconnues, à moins de faire des hypothèses fortes et difficilement vérifiables. On utilise plutôt des approximations, dont la précision est déterminante. Si on dispose de suffisamment d'observations, la loi donnée par les développements asymptotiques à l'ordre dominant est souvent une bonne approximation. Mais s'il y a trop peu de données, les tests peuvent être faussés. Les méthodes du bootstrap permettent d'obtenir en général une meilleure approximation de la vraie loi de la statistique. Ces méthodes utilisent souvent la puissance de calculs des ordinateurs. Elles remplacent des hypothèses contraignantes par des millions d'opérations arithmétiques. Dans cette thèse, nous étudions les performances numériques des méthodes du bootstrap dans le cadre des modèles de régression hétéroscédastiques. Il existe deux méthodes appropriées : le bootstrap par paires et le wild bootstrap. Les résultats expérimentaux montrent que la fiabilité des tests est améliorée, sans toutefois qu'elle devienne satisfaisante dans certains cas. Nous en proposons alors des versions améliorées. Grâce à ces dernières, nous montrons que les tests sont fiables, même pour des échantillons de petite taille
Economic and environmental impacts of natural resources abundance by Yassine Kirat( )

1 edition published in 2019 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This thesis examines how societies use and sustain the natural resources that fundamentally shape human well-being, the environment and the economy. The links between economic prosperity, resources and environmental preservation are complex and diverse. This implies that, if all dimensions are not taken into account in public policy making, any progress in achieving objectives in these areas can be hindered by undesirable outcomes. A key issue in development studies is how natural resource wealth affects long-term economic growth. In order to address this question, the first chapter examines the impact of non-conventional resource development on the US manufacturing sector over the period 1997-2013. In the same veine, chapter 3 examines the impact of abundant natural resources on the economy by exploiting the volatility channel of natural resources rent on a panel of 103 countries between 1985-2014. Moreover, the extraction and processing of natural resources are often energy-intensive activities that involve large-scale ecosystem alterations. Chapter 2 of the thesis investigates the impact of natural resource abundance on CO2 intensity in developed countries over the period 1995-2014
Essays on institutions in the process of development by Maty Konte( Book )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This dissertation consists of three essays on institutions in the process of development. Chapter 2 considers to what extent the existence of multiple regimes is associated to the quality of institutions in a country, and analyses the difference of the role played by political and economic institutions in the growth process. The results indicate that economic institutions are proximate causes and have a direct impact on the growth rate. On the other hand political institutions are deep causes, and thus are the key determinant for which growth regime a country belongs to. In chapter 3, I re-examine the question of the resource curse. I test to which extent the impact of natural resources on the growth rate depends truly on the growth regime to which a country belongs. I find two different growth regimes. One is a resource-blessed regime in which natural resources increase signicantly the growth rate. The second one is a resource-cursed regime in which natural resources do not stimulate the growth rate. The analysis of the determinants of whether a country belongs or not to the blessed resource regime indicates that high level of democracy increases the probability for a given country to belong to this regime. Chapter 4 tries to understand and to provide potential explanations to why women are less supportive of democracy than men in Sub-sahara Africa. We test whether this gap is due to individual differences in policy priorities or to country-wide characteristics. The results support that in Sub-sahara Africa the gender gap in support for democracy disappears in countries with high level of the Human Development Indicator and of political rights

The labour market for older workers : earnings trajectories, labour supply and employment by Kadija Charni( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

With the global ageing of population and the consequences on public finances sustainability, the labour market of older workers remains a key concern for societies.The aim of this dissertation is to address particular issues on the labour market for older workers.This thesis consists of four chapters.The first two chapters examine the age-earnings trajectories late in working life.We do not find support of a decline of earnings at older ages as the consequence of ageing.The decline of the age-earnings profile observed for older workers at cross-sectional analysis is attributable to cohort effects, job-changing, and partial retirement.Chapter 3 evaluates the effects of French pension reforms on older workers' transition out of unemployment and into employment. We find that the retirement reforms have limited effects on re-employment, and they increase transitions into inactivity, leading to a decrease of unemployment rate of older workers.Finally,Chapter 4 investigates the factors behind difficulties to remain in employment as workers age. It also evaluates job opportunities of older unemployed workers.The results indicate that the probability of leaving employment increases with economic incentives, ill health and age, while the probability of getting back to employment decreases with age.An Oaxaca decomposition supports the key role of age in the unemployment duration gap between 'older' and 'younger' workers, which is consistent with age discrimination
