[fre] Fonction de demande et surplus : une estimation sur des données de panel pour les transports . urbains français par Yves Croissant . Cet article présente l'estimation d'une fonction de demande pour les transports urbains. Il s'agit d'une fonction de type translog qui prend en compte la distribution des revenus et qui est estimée sur données de panel françaises. Les élasticités par rapport au prix et à la qualité sont conformes à celles obtenues habituellement. L'intérêt d'utiliser une forme flexible est de pouvoir construire par intégration de la demande une fonction de surplus. [eng] Demand and surplus functions: estimates based on panel data for French urban transport . by Yves Croissant . In this article, we present the estimation of a demand function for urban transportation. This is a translog demand function which takes into account income redistribution and which is estimated using panel data for France. Price and income elasticities obtained here are consistent with previous results. Using a flexible functional demand function enables us to construct a surplus function obtained by integration of the demand function.
