Paulo Albuquerque, Bart J. Bronnenberg
2009 Marketing science (Providence, R.I.)  
Empirically, the approach is used to evaluate the launch of a new national brand, DiGiorno, in the Frozen Pizza Category.  ...  Using only the standard information, i.e., market shares, in estimating the choicebased aggregate-level demand model leads, in our data, to poor estimates of the degree of consumer taste variation and  ...  In this paper, we aim to improve the estimation of demand, and of consumer heterogeneity in particular, using aggregate level data.  ...

Acknowledgments The authors thank an anonymous referee and the IZA World of Labor editors for many helpful suggestions on earlier drafts.  ...  Diet sodas would be expected to be close to each other in this space, and quite far away from frozen pizzas.  ...  In the second step, errors in the regression are used to construct restrictions on the data, which are then solved to produce an unbiased estimate of the treatment effect.  ...

Simulating the Impact of Carbon Taxes on Greenhouse Gas Emission and Nutrition in the UK

Cesar Revoredo-Giha, Neil Chalmers, Faical Akaichi
2018 Sustainability  
This study uses consumption, nutrient and GHG emission data to estimate the impact of two ad-valorem taxes: one applied by food category and another by the carbon emission of the products.  ...  The results suggest that the carbon consumption tax scenarios would reduce GHG emissions by a greater quantity relative to the ad-valorem tax scenario; however, the intake of important nutrients will also  ...  The authors would like to thank the SUSDIET partners for discussions on the topic, in particular Professors Xavier Irz and Paolo Sckokai. All remaining errors are our own.  ...

A Model of Heterogeneous Multicategory Choice for Market Basket Analysis

Katrin Dippold, Harald Hruschka
2013 Review of Marketing Science  
Nr. 456 JEL Classification: C11, C35, C52, M31 Abstract Based on market basket data, multicategory purchase incidence models analyze demand interdependencies between product categories.  ...  We nd that a homogeneous model would overestimate the intensity of interaction between product categories.  ...  An approach commonly used in market basket analysis is inferring heterogeneity over the covariation of error terms and estimating the model over a hierarchical Bayes structure with MCMC simulations.  ...

The Impact of Advertising Along the Conversion Funnel

Stephan Seiler, Song Yao
2017 Social Science Research Network  
Using these novel data, we trace out how advertising a↵ects consumer behavior along the path-to-purchase.  ...  We find advertising has no significant e↵ect on the number of consumers visiting the category being advertised. The null e↵ect is precisely estimated.  ...  In a second test, we confine our analysis to perishable products (frozen entrees, frozen pizza, milk, yogurt, butter / margarine, and hot dogs), for which displays are rare due to the need for these products  ...
