Essays on Public and Labor Economics

Chapter 1 presents evidence that current economics research significantly underestimates the effects of air pollution, regardless of the outcome of interest. This bias exists even in

Causal Inference for Spatial Treatments

A framework, estimators, and inference procedures for the analysis of causal effects in a setting with spatial treatments are proposed and a comparison between individuals near realized treatment locations and individuals near unrealized candidate locations is motivated.

The Cost of Air Pollution : Evidence from House Prices and Migration

Estimates of the value of clean air based on hedonic models of house prices typically have been surprisingly low compared to the best available evidence on pollution’s health costs. I show that these



Regression with spatially misaligned data

We present a simple approach to the problem of estimating the regression slope parameter from spatially misaligned point data. We assume a linear regression model with errors and covariates from two

Economic Shocks and Civil Conflict: An Instrumental Variables Approach

Estimating the impact of economic conditions on the likelihood of civil conflict is difficult because of endogeneity and omitted variable bias. We use rainfall variation as an instrumental variable

What Do We Learn from the Weather? The New Climate-Economy Literature

A rapidly growing body of research applies panel methods to examine how temperature, precipitation, and windstorms influence economic outcomes. These studies focus on changes in weather realizations

Maximum likelihood estimation of models for residual covariance in spatial regression

We describe the maximum likelihood method for fitting the linear model when residuals are correlated and when the covariance among the residuals is determined by a parametric model containing unknown

Estimation and Inference in Two-Step Econometric Models

A commonly used procedure in a wide class of impirical applications is to impute unobserved regressors, such as expectations, from an auxiliary econometric model. This two-step (T-S) procedure fails

Temperature Shocks and Economic Growth: Evidence from the Last Half Century

This paper uses historical fluctuations in temperature within countries to identify its effects on aggregate economic outcomes. We find three primary results. First, higher temperatures substantially

On maximum likelihood estimation of parameters in incorrectly specified models of covariance for spatial data

The analysis of, and from, models of spatial data usually proceeds under the assumption, often implicit, that the correct model has been specified. However, any model identification procedures based

Maximum Likelihood Estimation of Misspecified Models

This paper examines the consequences and detection of model misspecification when using maximum likelihood techniques for estimation and inference. The quasi-maximum likelihood estimator (QMLE)
