Many of our seminars and public events this year will continue as in person or as hybrid (online and in person) events. Please check our website listings and Twitter feed @STICERD_LSE for updates.

Unless otherwise specified, in-person seminars are open to the public.

Those unable to join the seminars in-person are welcome to participate via zoom if the event is hybrid.

About this event

Empirical methods for transferable-utility matching games have previously been developed using the key outcome of the matches formed in equilibrium. We explore identification and estimation of match production functions and agent valuation functions using data on two additional outcomes of such matching games: monetary transfers (prices) and profits. We provide identification results for nonparametric models for the case of data on profits and for more parametric models for the case of data on prices. We provide estimators paralleling the identification results for both profit data and price data. Importantly, our identification results allow for agents to have valuations defined over the unmeasured characteristics of potential partners.

STICERD Econometrics seminars are held on Thursdays in term time at 14.00-15.30, ONLINE, unless specified otherwise.

Seminar organisers: Professor Tai Otsu and Dr. Vassilis Hajivassiliou.
