      Age effects on consumer demand: An additive partially linear regression model 

      Lyssiotou, Panayiota Flori; Pashardes, Panos; Stengos, Thanasis (2002)
      An additive partially linear regression model is used to estimate non-parametrically the effects of total expenditure and age in the context of Engel curves and to investigate the specification and welfare interpretation ...

      Comparing the true cost of living indices of demographically different households 

      Lyssiotou, Panayiota Flori; Pashardes, Panos (2004)
      The comparison of true cost of living indices between demographically different households (relative equivalence scale) is argued to be sensitive to the way demographic characteristics enter demand analysis. In particular, ...

      Demographic versus expenditure flexibility in Engel curves 

      Lyssiotou, Panayiota Flori; Pashardes, Panos; Stengos, Thanasis (2008)
      We consider the effects of demographic and expenditure variables on consumer demand in a system of Engel curves using a smooth coefficient semiparametric model where the expenditure effects on the budget shares vary ...

      Estimates of the black economy based on consumer demand approaches 

      Lyssiotou, Panayiota Flori; Pashardes, Panos; Stengos, Thanasis (2004)
      We propose a consumer demand system approach to estimating the size of the black economy where alternative hypotheses affecting the empirical results can be tested in a nested framework. This approach allows for the ...

      Gains from trade in used goods: Evidence from automobiles 

      Clerides, Sofronis (2008)
      I investigate the welfare effects of trade liberalization by exploiting a natural policy experiment in the economy of Cyprus. A 1993 law relaxed import restrictions on used vehicles and enabled the importation of second-hand ...

      Long-run PPP under the presence of near-to-unit roots: The case of the British Pound-US dollar rate 

      Pittis, Nikitas; Christou, Christina; Kalyvitis, Sarantis; Hassapis, Christis (2009)
      Empirical tests typically provide evidence that the British pound-US dollar exchange rate and the relative wholesale price index contain exact unit roots and exhibit cointegration. However, the cointegrating vector is ...

      On estimating the cost of characteristics indices from consumer demand analysis 

      Lyssiotou, Panayiota Flori (2003)
      We examine the information content of relative equivalence scales using a multiperiod framework and argue that in the absence of Independence of Base (IB) these scales can be uniquely identified from demand analysis only ...

      Research spillovers among European and North-American economics departments 

      Kalaitzidakis, Pantelis; Mamuneas, Theofanis P.; Savvides, Andreas; Stengos, Thanasis (2004)
      In this paper, we investigate the determinants of research output by European economics departments. We use data from a survey we conducted on the various characteristics of these departments. We pay particular attention ...
