Today at Applied Stats<http://projects.iq.harvard.edu/applied_stats> we will be hearing from Stefan Hoderlein (Harvard Economics) who will be speaking on "Consumer Demand and Welfare Estimation in a Heterogeneous Population." As per usual, the talk will be held in CGIS K354<http://map.harvard.edu/?bld=04471&level=9> at 12 noon and lunch will be served.
This is an overview about own recent econometric work related to the modeling of heterogeneity in applied consumer demand models. The focus will be on non-parametric random coefficient models. The main application will come from estimating gasoline demand; in particular, estimating the distribution of welfare effects of a 5% gasoline price change.
I hope to see you all there!
