  • A Comparison of Parametric, Semi-nonparametric, Adaptive, and Nonparametric Cointegration Tests 

    Boswijk, H. Peter; Lucas, Andre; Taylor, Nick (Amsterdam : Tinbergen Institute, 1999-02-18)
    This paper provides an extensive Monte-Carlo comparison of severalcontemporary cointegration tests. Apart from the familiar Gaussian basedtests of Johansen, we also consider tests based on non-Gaussianquasi-likelihoods. ...
  • Compensation of Regional Unemployment in Housing Markets 

    Vermeulen, Wouter; Ommeren, Jos van (Amsterdam : Tinbergen Institute, 2005-10-13)
    Why are regional unemployment differentials in Europe so persistent if, as the wage curve literature demonstrates, there is no compensation in labour markets? We hypothesize that workers in high-unemployment regions are ...
  • Does Land Use Planning shape Regional Economies? 

    Vermeulen, Wouter; Ommeren, Jos van (Amsterdam : Tinbergen Institute, 2007-01-15)
    Why has job growth over the past decades been weaker in the Dutch Randstad area than in surrounding regions? In a simultaneous equations analysis, we find that employment adjusts to the regional supply of labour. Net ...
  • The Effect of the Theo van Gogh Murder on House Prices in Amsterdam 

    Gautier, Pieter A.; Siegmann, Arjen; Vuuren, Aico van (Amsterdam : Tinbergen Institute, 2007-01-26)
    This paper estimates the impact of the murder of film maker Theo van Gogh on November 2, 2004, on listed house prices in Amsterdam with a unique dataset. We use an hedonic-market approach to show that general attitudes ...
  • Geographical Distribution of Unemployment: An Analysis of Provincial Differences in Italy 

    Cracolici, Maria Francesca; Cuffaro, Miranda; Nijkamp, Peter (Amsterdam : Tinbergen Institute, 2007-08-28)
    Unemployment rates appear to vary widely at a subregional (e.g., local or provincial) level. Using spatial econometric models for spatial autocorrelation, this paper focuses attention on the spatial structure of regional ...
  • ICT and the location of call centres: regional and local patterns 

    Bruinsma, Frank; Rietveld, Piet; Beekman, Michiel (Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, 2004)
    One of the sectors that gained most of the boost in ICT developments is the call centres sector. The focus in this paper is on spatial diffusion patterns of call centres in the Netherlands. The number of call centres ...
  • Importance Sampling Simulations of Markovian Reliability Systems using Cross Entropy 

    Ridder, Ad (Amsterdam : Tinbergen Institute, 2004-02-10)
    This paper reports simulation experiments, applying the cross entropy method suchas the importance sampling algorithm for efficient estimation of rare event probabilities in Markovian reliability systems. The method is ...
  • Search Theory and Commuting Behavior 

    Rouwendal, Jan (Amsterdam : Tinbergen Institute, 2004-02-02)
    In this paper I argue that search theory is a useful addition to the way economists and geographers have approached the study of commuting behavior. This is illustrated by showing that introduction of a spatial element ...
  • Transaction Costs in Housing Markets 

    Ommeren, Jos van (Amsterdam : Tinbergen Institute, 2008-10-17)
    According to economic theory, there are no strong reasons to tax (or to subsidise) residential moves, although low levels of taxation may be potentially justified to deal with the presence of externalities and economic ...
  • The Use of Spatial Filtering Techniques: The Spatial and Space-time Structure of German Unemployment Data 

    Patuelli, Roberto; Griffith, Daniel A.; Tiefelsdorf, Michael; Nijkamp, Peter (Amsterdam : Tinbergen Institute, 2006-05-22)
    Socio-economic interrelationships among regions can be measured in terms of economic flows, migration, or physical geographically-based measures, such as distance or length of shared areal unit boundaries. In general, ...
