Simplified estimation of multivariate duration models with unobserved heterogeneity
A simple structure is suggested for modelling unobserved heterogeneity in multivariate duration models which avoids the "curse of dimensionality" and numerical integration of the likelihood function. This structure can be applied to many retirement and aging decisions including: time to retirement between spouses, financial planning, and health related retirement decisions.
