Improving Hedonic Estimation with an Inequality Restricted Estimator
AbstractEconomists commonly estimate the value of characteristics not traded in explicit markets by hedonic pricing. Unfortunately, these nonexplicitly traded characteristics often display a lack of independent variation or multicollinearity. Often some prior information on the value of these characteristics is available from submarkets. This paper utilizes this type of prior information to circumvent multicollinearity problems in hedonic pricing models using an inequality restricted Bayesian estimator. The authors perform a Monte Carlo experiment and cross-validation analysis to demonstrate the superiority of inequality restricted Bayesian over ordinary least squares at many margins in a variety of situations typically faced in hedonic estimation.
