Methodologies for Estimating Housing Subsidy Benefits


  • Michael P. Murray

    (University of Virginia, Charlottesville)


The traditional subsidy program benefit measurement techniques for a composite commodity ("housing services") model are reviewed and extended for use in the increasingly popular hedonic price framework in which housing is decomposed into a vector of characteristics, Since recent work has suggested that observed hedonic prices may not reflect market phenomena, a generalized approach is suggested which uses housing characteristics but is free of hedonic prices.
