Finding Exogenous Variation in Data [article]

Eliot Abrams, George Gui, Ali Hortacsu
2018 arXiv   pre-print
We demonstrate that our method recovers exogenous observations in simulation and can be used to find pricing experiments hidden in grocery store scanner data.  ...  We reconsider the classic problem of recovering exogenous variation from an endogenous regressor.  ...  It recovers exogenous observations in simulation and can be used to find pricing experiments hidden in retail scanner data.  ...

Depending on which performance measure is used, we find evidence of out-of-sample predictability in approximately 8%-—22% of the exogenous combinations for data set 1, 53%-78% of the exogenous combinations  ...  In table 3, there are large variations in predictability across variable groups, in-sample window lengths, data sets, and performance measures.  ... 

Labor-market volatility in a matching model with worker heterogeneity and endogenous separations

Andri Chassamboulli
2013 Labour Economics  
A general shortcoming of the models that incorporate variation in the separation rate is that they predict a countercyclical vacancy rate, which is at odds with the data.  ...  For reasonable amounts of variation in the separation rate, the model can generate sufficiently large variation in the unemployment rate and much higher volatility in the vacancy rate than implied by models  ...  exogenous variation in the separation rate.  ...

The self-medication hypothesis: Evidence from terrorism and cigarette accessibility

Michael F. Pesko, Christopher F. Baum
2016 Economics and Human Biology  
In the absence of accounting for endogeneity, we find that smoking is associated with increases in short-term stress.  ...  However, when we account for endogeneity we find no evidence of smoking affecting short-term stress. We do find a consistent positive effect of short-term stress on smoking.  ...  A study by Barnes and Smith (2009) uses longitudinal data in an instrumental variable (IV) model, exploiting geographic variation in local labor market conditions as a source of exogenous variation,  ...

2014 Frontiers in Public Health  
The purpose of this study was to examine variations in endogenous oxytocin levels in pregnancy and postpartum state. We also explored the associations between delivery variables and oxytocin levels.  ...  Socio-demographic data were collected at each time point and medical files were consulted for delivery details.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS The study was supported by a CIHR Emerging Team Grant in Perinatal Mental Health.  ...

Identification with Models and Exogenous Data Variation

R. Jay Kahn
2016 Social Science Research Network  
Identification means forming a unique mapping from features of data to quantities that are of interest to economists. Establishing causality is synonymous with finding sources of exogenous variation.  ...  However, exogenous variation is only sometimes necessary and never sufficient to identify economically interesting parameters.  ...  Second, finding exogenous variation in a variable is never sufficient for identification of an economically interesting parameter, and for some questions, exogenous variation may not be necessary.  ...

Labor-market Volatility in Matching Models with Endogenous Separations

Dale Mortensen, Éva Nagypál
2007 The Scandinavian Journal of Economics  
We show that whether aggregate productivity shocks have a larger effect on the vacancy-unemployment ratio than in a model with exogenous separations depends on whether worker productivity stochastically  ...  We also show that the cleansing effect introduced by allowing for endogenous separations can help in reconciling the model with observed fluctuations in the unemployment rate, but not with those in the  ...  promising in the sense that it also explains unemployment variability more through variation in the job-finding rate than through variation in the separation rate, in line with the data.  ...

Does Diversification Destroy Value? Evidence From Industry Shocks

Owen A. Lamont, Christopher K. Polk
2000 Social Science Research Network  
Since firms endogenously choose to diversify, exogenous variation in diversification is necessary in order to draw inferences about the causal effect.  ...  We find that exogenous changes in diversity, due to changes in industry investment, are negatively related to firm value.  ...  , most (80 percent) of the variation in diversity change is due to exogenous industry shocks.  ...

Promises, Expectations & Causation

Giovanni Di Bartolomeo, Martin Dufwenberg, Stefano Papa, Francesco Passarelli
2018 Games and Economic Behavior  
The overall picture is incomplete though, as no study disentangles effects in a design that provides exogenous variation of both (the key features of) promises and beliefs.  ...  Vanberg (2008) and Ederer & Stremitzer (2017) provide causal evidence in favor of, respectively, an intrinsic preference for keeping one's word and Charness & Dufwenberg's (2006) expectations-based account  ...  Even if he did, such data would in part suffer from the same problem as in C&D: variation in expectations would not be exogenously induced. 4 Ederer & Stremitzer (2017) (E&S) propose a novel design,  ...
