Academic Work
Nonparametric Identification and Estimation of the Sharing Rule in Collective Models with Unobserved Heterogeneity
This paper considers identification and estimation of structural components of the collective household consumption model. Particular attention is given to non-separable unobserved heterogeneity in
the reduced form demands that arises from the underlying aggregate decision process. Necessary
and sufficient conditions about the models primitives are derived that ensure nonparametric pointidentification of the sharing rule, a central component of the collective model that determines the
allocation of wealth among household members. A crucial condition is the existence of information on
intra-household allocation in the considered data-set. For such data-sets a nonparametric estimation
procedure is developed and its asymptotic properties are derived. To study the finite sample behaviour
of the estimator we conduct a Monte-Carlo experiment before we conclude the paper by estimating a
collective labour supply model using the Dutch LISS panel.

The Collective Axiom of Revealed Preference in a Heterogeneous Population

with Stefan Hoderlein
The collective household model assumes individual rationality and Pareto efficient intra-household
bargaining. This imposes a set of restrictions on demand movements if the budget situation changes,
which is known as the Collective Axiom of Revealed Preference (CARP). In this paper we investigate the
proportion of households that violate this condition in a heterogeneous population. Our analysis does
not require cross-sectional price-variation, but rather a population which is observed in different price
regimes. For a given budget we characterize the possible consumption choices of every household by
a partition of the budget constraint resulting from intersections with other budget constraints. Choice
behaviour can then be characterized by a discrete path of these consumption choices for each member
along budget sets. Intuitively as one moves along these budgets, a large enough proportion of the
population should follow a path that is consistent with the axiom. Such a discrete characterization
allows us to to non-parametrically test the restrictions of the collective axiom without having to impose
any restrictions on the functional forms of the models primitives nor the distribution or dimensionality
of unobserved heterogeneity.

Asymmetric Nonlinear Smooth Transition Generalized Autoregressive Conditional Quantile Models

with Pavel ek
Financial time series often exhibit asymmetric dynamic behaviour with respect to past shocks not
only in their conditional means but also in their conditional scales. This paper focuses on the latter,
in particular if the main interest is not in the scale itself but rather in the conditional quantile. We
propose a general autoregressive conditional quantile model that allows for asymmetric behaviour and
is robust to distributional assumptions. Our model can be viewed as an extension of the CAViaR model
in which we allow for two parameter regimes. We consider both a threshold and a smooth transition
version by using a parametrized transition function with a location and a scale parameter. We propose
an estimation procedure employing a sieve estimator approximating conditional scales in a first stage
using composite quantile regression, which are then used in the generalized autoregressive conditional
quantile estimation in the second stage. We show that our estimator is consistent and asymptotically
normal. Our simulations and empirical study indicate that prediction errors can be improved over a
standard smooth transition GARCH model.
