  • Arana, Estanislao; Delicado, Pedro; Martí, Luis (1999)
    The objective of this paper is to compare the performance of two predictive radiological models, logistic regression (LR) and neural network (NN), with five different resampling methods. One hundred and sixty-seven ...
  • Huang, Kevin X.D.; Werner, Jan (1997)
    Price bubbles in an Arrow-Debreu valuation equilibrium in infinite-time economy are a manifestation of lack of countable additivity of valuation of assets. In contrast, known examples of price bubbles in sequential equilibrium ...
  • Rubio Varas, M. del Mar (2005)
    The paper contrasts empirically the results of alternative methods for estimating the value and the depreciation of mineral resources. The historical data of Mexico and Venezuela, covering the period 1920s-1980s, is used ...
  • Devroye, Luc; Lugosi, Gábor (1998)
    For the standard kernel density estimate, it is known that one can tune the bandwidth such that the expected L1 error is within a constant factor of the optimal L1 error (obtained when one is allowed to choose the ...
  • Kohatsu, Arturo; Pettersson, Roger (2002)
    We develop a general error analysis framework for the Monte Carlo simulation of densities for functionals in Wiener space. We also study variance reduction methods with the help of Malliavin derivatives. For this, we give ...
  • Amat, Oriol; Blake, John; Oliveras, Ester (1999)
    During the 1990's studies of management accounting practices in Europe and in Latin America have given us data on 23 countries. In this paper we use this data to identify five distinct aspects of national management ...
  • Garcia Montalvo, José (2006)
    Economists have recently turned their attention to the effects of terrorism. One much debated effect of terrorist attacks is its impact on the results of democratic elections. We use the electoral consequences of the ...
  • Llavador, Humberto (2005)
    This paper analyzes a two-alternative voting model with the distinctive feature that voters have preferences over margins of victory. We study voting contests with a finite as well as an infinite number of voters, and with ...
  • Riba, Clara (2000)
    En este trabajo se presentan los resultados de un estudio empírico sobre los motivos del cambio sistemático de resultados electorales que se da en Cataluña según el ámbito de la convocatoria electoral de que se trate. ...
  • Andrés, Javier; Garcia, Jaume (1991)
    In this paper we estimate wage equations for the Spanish industry using time series data on 85 industrial sectors, which allows us to distinguish between aggregate and sector specific effects in wage determination. Industry ...
  • Cuadras Morató, Xavier; Mateos-Planas, Xavier (2006)
    A skill-biased change in technology can account at once for the changes observed in a number of important variables of the US labour market between 1970 and 1990. These include the increasing inequality in wages, both ...
  • Shapiro, Joel (2002)
    Wage inequality in the United States has grown substantially in the past two decades. Standard supply-demand analysis in the empirics of inequality (e.g.Katz and Murphy (1992)) indicates that we may attribute some of this ...
  • Haefke, Christian; Sonntag, Marcus; van Rens, Thijs (2007)
    Recent research in macroeconomics emphasizes the role of wage rigidity in accounting for the volatility of unemployment fluctuations. We use worker-level data from the CPS to measure the sensitivity of wages of newly hired ...
  • Camps, Enriqueta (2003)
    This paper deals with changes in managerial practices in Catalonia in an age of nascent capitalism (1830-1925) and adaptive family strategies in order to face the absence of state welfare. During the 19 t h Century and in ...
  • Acemoglu, Daron; Zilibotti, Fabrizio (1994)
  • Pollock, Gregory B.; Cabrales, Antonio (1998)
    A simple variant of trait group selection, employing predators as the mechanism underlying group selection, supports contingent reproductive suicide as altruism (i.e., behavior lowering personal fitness while augmenting ...
  • Kohatsu, Arturo (1999)
    We introduce a variation of the proof for weak approximations that is suitable for studying the densities of stochastic processes which are evaluations of the flow generated by a stochastic differential equation on a ...
  • Gaytan, Alejandro; Rancière, Romain (2004)
    This paper presents empirical support for the existence of wealth effects in the contribution of financial intermediation to economic growth, and offers a theoretical explanation for these effects. Using GMM dynamic panel ...
  • Greenacre, Michael; Groenen, Patrick J. F. (2013)
    We construct a weighted Euclidean distance that approximates any distance or dissimilarity measure between individuals that is based on a rectangular cases-by-variables data matrix. In contrast to regular multidimensional ...
  • Delicado, Pedro; del Rio, Manuel (1996)
    In the fixed design regression model, additional weights are considered for the Nadaraya--Watson and Gasser--M\"uller kernel estimators. We study their asymptotic behavior and the relationships between new and classical ...
