Combining Micro and Macro Data in Microeconometric Models
AbstractCensus reports can be interpreted as providing nearly exact knowledge of moments of the marginal distribution of economic variables. This information can be combined with cross-sectional or panel samples to improve accuracy of estimation. In this paper, the authors show how to do this efficiently. They show that the gains from use of marginal information can be substantial. The authors also discuss how to test the compatibility of sample and marginal information.
