Estimate the above equation by pooled ols

C10 Use the data in AIRFARE.RAW for this exercise. We are interested in estimating the model

log( fareit) 5 1concenit 2log(disti) 1 3[log(disti)]2

auit 5 1, …, 4,

where means that we allow for different year intercepts.



(i)        Estimate the above equation by pooled OLS, being sure to include year dummies. If concen 5 .10, what is the estimated percentage increase in fare?

(ii)      What is the usual OLS 95% confidence interval for 1? Why is it probably not reliable? If you have access to a statistical package that computes fully robust standard errors, find the fully robust 95% CI for 1. Compare it to the usual CI and comment.

(iii)     Describe what is happening with the quadratic in log(dist). In particular, for what value of dist does the relationship between log( fare) and dist become positive? [Hint: First figure out the turning point value for log(dist), and then exponentiate.] Is the turning point outside the range of the data?

(iv)    Now estimate the equation using random effects. How does the estimate of 1 change?

(v)      Now estimate the equation using fixed effects. What is the FE estimate of 1? Why is it fairly similar to the RE estimate? (HintWhat is ˆ for RE estimation?)

(vi)    Name two characteristics of a route (other than distance between stops) that are captured by ai. Might these be correlated with concenit?

(vii)   Are you convinced that higher concentration on a route increases airfares? What is

your best estimate?
