      Measuring the Effect of the Real Estate Bubble: a House Price Index for Bilbao 

      Bárcena Ruiz, María Jesús; Menéndez, Patricia; Palacios, María Blanca; Tusell Palmer, Fernando Jorge (2011-11)
      A spatio-temporal model is proposed aimed at producing an index of housing prices. A hedonic model with geographically varying coefficients is coupled with a non parametric estimation of the trend, whence a price index is derived.

      Mixed Duopoly, Merger and Multiproduct Firms 

      Bárcena Ruiz, Juan Carlos; Garzón San Felipe, María Begoña (2000-07)
      The literature on mergers has extensively analyzed the decision to merge by private firms but it has not considered the decision to merge by private and public firms. We assume that when a private firm and a public firm ...

      Un Modelo Lineal Generalizado Semiparametrico para Analisis de Duracion con Censura 

      Orbe Lizundia, Jesús María (2000-07)
      [EN] Aitkin and Clayton (1980) proposed to analyze duration models using generalized linear models. In this work we extend that methodology allowing for some nonspecified covariable effect. The model we propose is a ...

      Multiple imputation of time series: an application to the construction of historical price indexes 

      Tusell Palmer, Fernando Jorge (2005)
      Time series in many areas of application, and notably in the social sciences, are frequently incomplete. This is particularly annoying when we need to have complete data, for instance to compute indexes as a weighted average ...

      Nonparametric estimation betas in the Market Model 

      Esteban González, María Victoria; Orbe Mandaluniz, Susan (2006)
      In this study an alternative nonparametric estimator to the Fama and MacBeth approach for the CAPM estimation is proposed. Betas and risk premiums are estimated simultaneously in order to increase the explanatory power of ...

      Nonparametric estimation of time varying parameters under shape restrictions 

      Orbe Mandaluniz, Susan; Ferreira García, María Eva; Rodríguez Poo, Juan M. (2001-01)
      In this paper we propose a new method to estimate nonparametrically a time varying parameter model when some qualitative information from outside data (e.g. seasonality) is available. In this framework we make two main ...

      Numerical Distribution Functions for Seasonal Unit Root Tests 

      Díaz-Emparanza Herrero, Ignacio (2011-12)
      When working with time series data observed at intervals smaller than a year, it is often necessary to test for the presence of seasonal unit roots. One of the most widely used methods for testing seasonal unit roots is ...

      On the strategic choice of spatial price policy: the role of the pricing game rules 

      Aguirre Pérez, Iñaki; Martín Arroyuelos, Ana María (2001-02)
      In this paper, whe show that the strategic choice of spatial price policy under duopoly crucially depends on the rules of price competition. Thisse and Vives (1988) show that spatial price discrimination is a dominant ...
