On Aggregation of Micro-Relations : a Research Program


  • Werner Hildenbrand
  • Alois Kneip


[eng] The message of this presentation is: by taking into account heterogeneity of the population in modelling macroeconomic behavioral relations one can make use of cross-section data in addition to aggregate time series data. To rely on this richer data set - i.e., time series of cross-section data - will improve the empirical content of macro-modelling. [fre] Sur l'agrégation des relations microéconomiques : un programme de recherche. . Le message de cette présentation est que la prise en compte de l'hétérogénéité de la population dans la modélisation des relations macroéconomiques de comportement permet de ne pas se contenter d'utiliser des données agrégées de séries temporelles et de leur adjoindre des données en coupes instantanées. En s'appuyant ainsi sur un ensemble enrichi de données - des séries temporelles de coupes instantanées -, on peut améliorer le contenu empirique des relations macroéconomiques étudiées.
