The Application of a Random Coefficient Model to the Problem of Estimating Aggregate Production Parameters
This 1977 paper is about estimating elasticities for the ORANI model -- in particular the elasticity of substitution between capital and labour. Literature is surveyed, and a theoretical approach outlined. Then data and regression results are briefly discussed. From cross-sectional data, the average elasticity of substitution between capital and labour for Australian manufacturing is estimated to be 1.28.
