Semiparametric binary random effects models: Estimating two types of drinking behavior
AbstractI propose a new estimator for cross-section semiparametric regressions containing unobserved binary random effects and apply it to alcohol consumption. The random effects (health consciousness) explain a significant proportion of otherwise unexplained variation in alcohol consumption. Education positively correlates with health consciousness.
