Une remise en cause de la méthode des prix hédoniques en présence d'une segmentation de marché


  • Marc Baudry
  • Masha Maslianskaïa-Pautrel


This article deals with the incidence of consumers’ heterogeneity on the formation of hedonic price functions with a focus on the emergence of market segmentation. Two major points are outlined: (i) in the presence of group-wise heterogeneity, consumers are endogenously gathered on intervals of values of the argument of the hedonic price function, defined as an index of housing services; (ii) the resulting segmentation invalidates the standard two stages estimation method more specifically used to assess the value of local environmental goods. Classification JEL : R31, Q51.
