Is there an easy way to compute it?
Also, with panel data, to make cross-sectional EKS indices comparable over time, Robert Hill (AER, 2004) suggests a method that uses a time-series of price indices to link them over time. Is there a Shazam procedure to do that? Daehoon NahmWed, 04 Mar 2015 23:11:01 +0000http://community.econometrics.com/question/608/
