TitleMicroeconometric models for limited dependent variables
ParticipantsJoão Andrade e Silva, Esmeralda Arranhado (Principal Investigator), João Bastos
SummaryThis project addresses microeconometric models for limited dependent variables (fractional,
positive, or mixed nature). The main aim is considering estimators to deal with either rare
responses or misclassification in the dependent variable in the presence of large datasets.
Additionally, some applied work will be developed. On the one hand, in the area of International
Economics, the impact of some activities of Agência para o Investimento e Comércio Externo de
Portugal (AICEP) on the Portuguese firms exports will be investigated. On the other hand, in the
area of Energy Economics, the impact of efficiency labeling on house prices will be analysed using
machine learning techniques (this line of research depends on the availability of the dataset).
