Estimation of Price Elasticities from Cross-Sectional Data

  • Chung, Chanjin
  • Dong, Diansheng
  • Kaiser, Harry M.
  • Schmit, Todd M.

This study develops an empirical framework that can be used to estimate quality-adjusted price elasticities from cross-sectional data, which are theoretically consistent and comparable to elasticities from time-series data. The new approach shows the importance of properly adjusting for quality variation in demand analysis.
