  journal={ERN: Other Microeconomics: General Equilibrium \& Disequilibrium Models (Topic)},
This paper derives conditions under which preferences and technology are nonparametrically identified in hedonic equilibrium models, where products are differentiated along more than one dimension and agents are characterized by several dimensions of unobserved heterogeneity. With products differentiated along a quality index and agents characterized by scalar unobserved heterogeneity, single crossing conditions on preferences and technology provide identifying restrictions. We develop similar… 
Identifying a Model of Screening with Multidimensional Consumer Heterogeneity
In this paper, I study the nonparametric identification of a model of price discrimination with multidimensional consumer heterogeneity from disaggregated data on consumers' choices and
Identifying Multidiemsnional Adverse Selection Models
In this paper, I study the nonparametric identification of a multidimensional adverse selection model. In particular, I consider the screening model of Rochet and Chone (1998), where products have
2020-2 Prices, Profits, Proxies, and Production
This paper studies nonparametric identification and counterfactual bounds for heterogeneous firms that can be ranked in terms of productivity. Our approach works when quantities and prices are latent
Identification of Random Coefficient Latent Utility Models
This paper provides nonparametric identification results for random coefficient distributions in perturbed utility models. We cover discrete and continuous choice models. We establish identification
Entropy methods for identifying hedonic models
This paper makes use of Queyranne’s reformulation of a hedonic model in the discrete case as a network flow problem in order to provide a proof of existence and integrality of aHedonic equilibrium and efficient computation of hedonIC prices.
Point-identification in multivariate nonseparable triangular models
In this article we introduce a general nonparametric point-identification result for nonseparable triangular models with a multivariate first- and second stage. Based on this we prove
Estimating the marginal willingness to pay function without instrumental variables
The Econometrics of Matching Models
This review reports on recent developments that have considerably expanded the range of matching models that can be taken to the data and illustrates this on leading applications.
Identification in multivariate nonseparable triangular models with applications to Engel curves , the BLP-, and Hedonic models
In this article we introduce general nonparametric identification results for nonseparable triangular models with a multivariate firstand second stage. In our main result we prove
Incorporating Dynamic Behavior into the Hedonic Model∗
The property value hedonic model, which has been used extensively in the environmental and urban literature, has long been considered the “workhorse” model of amenity valuation. Derived using the


Nonparametric Identification and Estimation of Nonadditive Hedonic Models
This paper studies the identification and estimation of preferences and technologies in equilibrium hedonic models. In it, we identify nonparametric structural relationships with nonadditive
Hedonic Prices and Implicit Markets: Estimating Marginal Willingness to Pay for Differentiated Products Without Instrumental Variables
The hedonic model of Rosen (1974) has become a workhorse for valuing the characteristics of differentiated products despite a number of well-documented econometric problems. For example, Bartik
Hedonic Prices and Implicit Markets: Estimating Demand and Supply Functions for Differentiated Products

In choosing the level of quality to purchase, the buyer of a differentiated product also chooses a point on the marginal price schedule for that product. Hence, in general, the demand functions for
The Estimation of Demand Parameters in Hedonic Price Models

This paper shows that the econometric problem of estimating hedonic demand parameters is not a standard identification problem caused by demand-supply interaction, as has been often assumed.
Identification and Estimation of Hedonic Models
This paper considers the identification and estimation of hedonic models. We establish that in an additive version of the hedonic model, technology and preferences are generically identified up to
Efficient Estimation of Structural Hedonic Systems
In any hedonic system in which consumers purchase a characteristic embodied in a good, consumers with strong tastes for the characteristic are matched with producers with low costs of producing it.
On the Estimation of Structural Hedonic Price Models
The purpose of this note is to point out certain pitfalls in Rosen's procedure, which, if ignored, could lead to major identification problems.
Hedonic Prices and Implicit Markets: Product Differentiation in Pure Competition

A class of differentiated products is completely described by a vector of objectively measured characteristics. Observed product prices and the specific amounts of characteristics associated with
Existence, uniqueness and efficiency of equilibrium in hedonic markets with multidimensional types
We study equilibrium in hedonic markets, when consumers and suppliers have reservation utilities, and the utility functions are separable with respect to price. There is one indivisible good, which
Cupid’s Invisible Hand: Social Surplus and Identification in Matching Models
We investigate a model of one-to-one matching with transferable utility when some of the characteristics of the players are unobservable to the analyst. We allow for a wide class of distributions of
