Addressing endogeneity in residential location models

  title={Addressing endogeneity in residential location models},
  author={Cristi{\'a}n Angelo Guevara-Cue},
Some empirical residential location choice models have reported dwelling-unit price estimated parameters that are small, not statistically significant, or even positive. This would imply that households are non-sensitive to changes in dwelling unit prices or location taxes, which is not only against intuition, but also makes the models useless for policy analysis. One explanation for this result is price endogeneity, which means that the price is correlated with the error term in the… 

Endogeneity in Residential Location Choice Models

Empirical residential location choice models have occasionally reported estimated coefficients of dwelling-unit price that are small, statistically insignificant, or even positive. This would imply

Endogeneity and Sampling of Alternatives in Spatial Choice Models

Addressing the problem of omitted attributes and employing a sampling of alternatives strategy, are two key requirements of practical spatial choice models. The omission of attributes causes

Modeling Household Residential Choice Using Multiple Imputation

Households are one of the core agents in the urban system. Household behavior plays a crucial role in urban system performance and can profoundly shape the urban landscape. This thesis examines

Historical Deposition Influence in Residential Location Decisions: A Distance-Based GEV Model for Spatial Correlation

Most of the existing literature on residential location choice is cross-sectional and assumes no history effect in people's residential location preferences. However, human beings are constantly



Housing Demand in the Short Run: An Analysis of Polytomous Choice

In this paper the author presents a model of household choice among types of residential housing that incorporates intramet­ ropolitan variations in housing prices arising from variations in work

Endogeneity in Brand Choice Models

Applications of random utility models to scanner data have been widely presented in marketing for the last 20 years. One particular problem with these applications is that they have ignored possible

Modelling the Choice of Residential Location

The problem of translating the theory of economic choice behavior into concrete models suitable for analyzing housing location and methods for controlling the size of data collection and estimation tasks by sampling alternatives from the full set of alternatives are discussed.

Extended discrete choice models : integrated framework, flexible error structures, and latent variables

Discrete choice methods model a decision-maker’s choice among a set of mutually exclusive and collectively exhaustive alternatives. They are used in a variety of disciplines (transportation,

Estimating Discrete-Choice Models of Product Differentiation

This article considers the problem of "supply-and-demand" analysis on a cross section of oligopoly markets with differentiated products. The primary methodology is to assume that demand can be

Discrete Choice Analysis: Theory and Application to Travel Demand

This book, which is intended as a graduate level text and a general professional reference, presents the methods of discrete choice analysis and their applications in the modeling of transportation


This paper examines the influence of race on urban spatial structure in a multinomial logit model of residential and workplace location choice. A unique data set that provides the residence and

You Can Take it with You: Transferability of Proposition 13 Tax Benefits, Residential Mobility, and Willingness to Pay for Housing Amenities

In 1978, Californians approved Proposition 13, which fixed property tax rates at 1% of housing prices at the time of purchase. Beyond its fiscal consequences, Proposition 13 created a lock-in effect
