1. Sarrias Jeraldo, Mauricio Alejandro. Three Essays On Continuous And Discrete Spatial Heterogeneity .

Degree: 2016, Cornell University

Continuous and discrete unobserved heterogeneity have been widely used in modeling discrete choice models. In this dissertation I investigate how these modeling strategies can be used to capture and model spatial heterogeneity or locally varying coefficients for different latent structures. In the first chapter, I outline the main advantages and disadvantages of both continuous and discrete spatial modeling strategies. Then I conduct a simulation experiment in order to understand the ability of both approaches to retrieve the true representation of the spatially varying process under small sample size situations. The results show that the data requirement to achieve lower bias in the continuous case is substantial compared with the discrete case. I have also found that, as the number of individuals per spatial unit increases, both models are able to identify the regional-specific estimates. However, the discrete case is able to retrieve the true spatial heterogeneity surface with lower bias and better coverage. In the second chapter, I show the Rchoice package for R that allows estimating models with individual heterogeneity for both cross-sectional and panel data. In particular, the package allows binary, ordinal and count response, as well as continuous and discrete covariates. This chapter is a general description of Rchoice and all functionalities are illustrated using real databases. The last chapter shows how continuous and discrete spatial heterogeneity models can be applied in order to analyze whether monetary subjective well-being eval- uations vary across space using a cross-sectional dataset from Chile. The results show that focusing just on the average estimates of compensating variations veils useful local variation. Moreover, the discrete approach shows some weak superiority over the continuous case in terms of model fit and interpretation.

2. Zhang, Ziye. Three Essays on Housing Markets .

Degree: 2018, Cornell University

This dissertation contains three chapters related to housing markets. First two chapters study the vertical variation in housing prices, and the third chapter models buy-sellers. The first focus is the vertical dimension of housing markets. Location is the most important factor in determining housing prices. However, in multi-unit residential markets, two housing units in one building share the same location but may still have different transaction prices. The first chapter is to explore why. To identify the explanatory factors, the author collects over 200,000 transaction records from 2012-2016 in Beijing and provides rich and valid empirical evidence. Also, this chapter proposes a least nugget effects estimator (LNE) as an alternative to the conventional fixed effects estimator (FE). LNE is essentially a pairwise differences estimator (PD) whose comparison with FE in linear fixed effects models is studied in the second chapter. The second focus of this dissertation is a type of households who are both home buyer and home seller at the same time (called "buy-sellers"). The traditional framework would model such households as two independent identities. However, this dichotomic tradition ignores the essential feature of the buy-sellers, that is, the interdependence between buying and selling decisions. As a buyer, a new purchase depends on a successful sale due to budget and policy restrictions; as a seller, a sale may rely on the success in bidding to avoid renting for a living. This interdependence results in a connected bidding network. One’s success or failure in bidding or selling will influence others’. Chapter three, for the first time, studies this type of households and proposes an agent-based model (ABM) with buy-sellers. Then, the author uses this ABM to analyze the effects of housing purchase restrictions and home brokerage on market outcomes.
