Household enterprises in Vietnam : survival, growth, and living standards by Wim P. M Vijverberg( Book )

Two-fifths of the household enterprises that operated in Vietnam in 1993 were still in business in 1998, after five years of rapid economic growth. Constrained by lack of education, credit, and effective demand in poor areas, and squeezed by the lure of wage labor in rich areas, household enterprises are most prominent when agriculture is declining in importance but before the formal sector becomes established

Testing for IIA with the Hausman-McFadden Test by Wim P. M Vijverberg( file )
2 editions published in 2011 in German and English and held by 16 libraries worldwide
The Independence of Irrelevant Alternatives assumption inherent in multinomial logit models is most frequently tested with a Hausman-McFadden test. As is confirmed by many findings in the literature, this test sometimes produces negative outcomes, in contradiction of its asymptotic x2 distribution. This problem is caused by the use of an improper variance matrix and may lead to an invalid statistical inference even when the test value is positive. With a correct specification of the variance, the sampling distribution for small samples is indeed close to a x2 distribution. -- multinomial logit ; IIA assumption ; Hausman-McFadden test
Schooling, family background, and adoption : does family income matter? by Erik Plug( Book )
7 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 15 libraries worldwide
One would expect that family income is an important positive factor in the school attainment of children. However, evidence on this relationship is often tainted by the lack of control for parental ability, since at least a portion of ability is transferred genetically to children. This paper considers empirical strategies that control for both observed and unobserved parental ability. In the end, family income still has a significant effect, which must therefore be causative. It implies that high-ability children in low-income families face binding credit constraints that society may wish to relieve
Do wages really compensate for risk aversion and skewness affection? by Joop Hartog( Book )
6 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 14 libraries worldwide
Betit : a family that nests probit and logit by Wim P. M Vijverberg( Book )
6 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 13 libraries worldwide
This paper proposes a dichotomous choice model that is based on a transformed beta (or "z") distribution. This model, called betit, nests both logit and probit and allows for various skewed and peaked disturbance densities. Because the shape of this density affects the estimated relation between the dichotomous choice variable and its determinants, the greater flexibility of the transformed beta distribution is useful in generating more accurate representations of this relationship. The paper considers asymptotic biases of the logit and probit models under conditions where betit should have been used. It also investigates small sample power and provides two examples of applications that illustrative of the capability of the betit model
