    Abstract : This thesis consists of four manuscripts in the area of nonlinear time series econometrics on topics of testing, modeling and forecasting nonlinear common features. The aim of this thesis is to develop new econometric contributions for hypothesis testing and forecasting in thesearea.Both stationary and nonstationary time series are concerned. READ MORE

  3. 3. On specification and inference in the econometrics of public procurement

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : David Sundström; Umeå universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; auctions; dependent variable transformation model; green public procurement; indirect inference; instrumental variable; latent variable; log-generalized gamma distribution; maximum likelihood; measurement error; non-linear least squares; objective effectiveness; orthogonal polynomial regression; prediction; simulation estimation; structural estimation; nationalekonomi; Economics; ekonometri; Econometrics;

    Abstract : In Paper [I] we use data on Swedish public procurement auctions for internal regularcleaning service contracts to provide novel empirical evidence regarding green publicprocurement (GPP) and its effect on the potential suppliers’ decision to submit a bid andtheir probability of being qualified for supplier selection. We find only a weak effect onsupplier behavior which suggests that GPP does not live up to its political expectations. READ MORE

  4. 4. On Risk Prediction

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Carl Lönnbark; Umeå universitet.; [2009]

    Abstract : This thesis comprises four papers concerning risk prediction. Paper [I] suggests a nonlinear and multivariate time series model framework that enables the study of simultaneity in returns and in volatilities, as well as asymmetric effects arising from shocks. READ MORE

  5. 5. Essays on Econometric Theory

    University dissertation from Department of Economics, Lund Universtiy

    Author : Peter Jochumzen; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [1998]

    Abstract : This dissertation contains a variety of contributions to econometric theory. Broadly speaking, econometrics may be categorized depending on what type of data is being analyzed, the two main categories being time series data and cross sectional data. A third category is panel data, combining cross sectional data observed over time. READ MORE
