1. Bouhlal, Yasser. A Retrospective and Prospective Analysis of the Demand for Cheese Varieties in the United States.

Degree: 2012, Texas A&M University

The United States cheese consumption has grown considerably over the years. Using Nielsen Homescan panel data for calendar years 2005 and 2006, this dissertation examines the effect of economic and socio-demographic factors on the demand for disaggregated cheese varieties and on the cheese industry in general. In the first essay, we estimated the censored demand for 14 cheese varieties and identified the respective own-price and cross-price elasticities. Also, non-price factors were determined affecting the purchase of each variety as well as the impact of generic dairy advertising. Results revealed that most of the natural cheese varieties have an elastic demand while the processed cheese products exhibited inelastic demands. Strong substitution and complementarity relationships were identified as well, and a two quarter carry-over effect of advertising was observed for most of cheese demands. Results also showed that household demographics affected the demands differently, depending on the nature of the cheese varieties. The second essay examined the impact of retail promotion on the decision to purchase private label processed cheese products using a probit model. A strong negative relationship was found between national brand manufacturer couponing activity and the private label purchase decision. Therefore, national brand couponing appears to be an effective strategy for manufacturers to deter private label growth. This analysis also shows that the decision of purchasing a private label cheese product is influenced by socio-demographic characteristics of the household, namely household income and size, age and education level of the household head, race, ethnicity, and location. In the third study, the feasibility of fortifying processed cheese with omega-3 is investigated. This ex-ante analysis took into account the market conditions and evaluates the increase in the demand for processed cheese needed to offset the costs of fortification in order to maintain the profitability of manufacturers like Kraft. Initially, the censored demand for processed cheese products is estimated using panel data; subsequently, the profitability of manufacturing such product is determined.This analysis shows that, within reasonable market conditions and reasonable marginal costs, the fortification of processed cheese products with omega-3 fatty acids indeed is feasible from a profitability standpoint to manufacturers. Advisors/Committee Members: Capps, Oral (advisor), Bessler, David A. (committee member), Wu, Ximing (committee member), Ureta, Manuelita (committee member).

2. Zhou, Qiong. Essays in Applied Econometrics.

Degree: PhD, Economics, 2009, University of Florida

In the final study, I propose a maximum likelihood estimator (MLE) for the panel data Tobit regression model with unknown individual effects. To overcome the problem occurred in chapter 2, my proposal is to use log likelihood density function instead of conditional moment restrictions in optimization problem. I suggest to approximate unknown density function of individual effects with a sieve estimator and to estimate finite dimensional unknown parameters and infinite dimensional sieve estimator jointly by applying the method of maximum likelihood estimation. Under some sufficient conditions, I show that (1) the sieve estimator of unknown density function for individual effects is consistent under certain metric; (2) the MLE estimators of the finite dimensional parameters are consistent and asymptotically normally distributed; (3) the estimator for the asymptotic covariance of the parameter is consistent. Advisors/Committee Members: Ai, Chunrong (committee chair), Hamilton, Jonathan H. (committee member), Terza, Joseph V. (committee member), Shen, Wei (committee member).
