Archived Abstract of Former PSC Researcher

Berry, S., James A. Levinsohn, and A. Pakes. 2004. "Differentiated Products Demand Systems From a Combination of Micro and Macro Data: the New Car Market." Journal of Political Economy, 112(1): 68-105.

We use our estimates to make out-of-sample predictions about important recent changes in industry structure.
