A Bayesian analysis of binary misclassification 2017 263 We consider Bayesian inference about the mean of a binary variable that is subject to misclassification error. If the error probabilities are not known, or cannot be estimated, the parameter is only partially identified. For several reasonable and in...
Bayesian Inference in a Sample Selection Model 2011 3757 This paper develops methods of Bayesian inference in a sample selection model. The main feature of this model is that the outcome variable is only partially observed. We first present a Gibbs sampling algorithm for a model in which the selection and ...
Bayesian moment-based inference in a regression model with misclassification error 2017 170 We present a Bayesian analysis of a regression model with a binary covariate that may have classification (measurement) error. Prior research demonstrates that the regression coefficient is only partially identified. We take a Bayesian approach which...
Binary Misclassification and Identification in Regression Models 2012 1166 We study a regression model with a binary explanatory variable that is subject to misclassification errors. The regression coefficient is then only partially identified. We derive several results that relate different assumptions about the misclassif...
Community Health Center Efficiency: The Role of Grant Revenues in Health Center Efficiency 2014 1060 Objective: To test the relationship between external environments, organizational characteristics, and technical efficiency in federally qualified health centers (FQHCs). We tested the relationship between grant revenue and technical efficiency in FQ...
The Economic Impact of Smoke-Free Laws on Restaurants and Bars in 9 States 2013 1686 Introduction: Smoke-free air laws in restaurants and bars protect patrons and workers from involuntary exposure to secondhand smoke, but owners often express concern that such laws will harm their businesses. The primary objective of this study was t...
Emergency Department and Inpatient Hospital Use by Medicare Beneficiaries in Patient-Centered Medical Homes 2015 83 Study objectivePatient-centered medical homes are primary care practices that focus on coordinating acute and preventive care. Such practices can obtain patient-centered medical home recognition from the National Committee for Quality Assurance. We c...
Exploring the Impact of R&D on Patenting Activity in Small Women-Owned and Minority-Owned Entrepreneurial Firms. 2019 263 The relevant economics literature on the impact of R&D on patenting activity falls within two methodological areas of inquiry. The first area might be classified as a test of the Schumpeterian hypothesis. The second and lesser research area might be ...
The impact of public R&D investments on patenting activity: technology transfer at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. 2018 239 This paper presents estimates of the impact of public R&D on patenting activity at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Using a time series of public sector agency data, we estimate the per-capita R&D elasticity of new patent applications ...
The Impact of the Vermont Support and Services at Home Program on Healthcare Expenditures 2018 55 Objective: The Support and Services at Home (SASH) program in Vermont aims to coordinate care and assist participants in accessing the health care and support services they need to maintain their health and age comfortably and safely in their homes. ...
Knowledge begets knowledge: university knowledge spillovers and the output of scientific papers from U.S. Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) projects 2019 243 Scientific papers submitted for publication from U.S. Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR)-funded research projects are an innovative output that has yet to be studied systematically. Using a knowledge production framework, we identify empirical...
Many-instruments Asymptotic Approximations Under Nonnormal Error Distributions 2010 1267 In this paper we derive an alternative asymptotic approximation to the sampling distribution of the limited information maximum likelihood estimator and a bias corrected version of the two-stage least squares estimator. The approximation is obtained ...
On the Transfer of Technology from Universities: The Impact of the Bayh-Dole Act of 1980 on the Institutionalization of University Research 2019 54 While the academic and policy literature has focused on patent counts and patent quality as possible outcome measures to evaluate the impact of the U.S. Bayh–Dole Act of 1980, we argue that the impact of the Act on university effort to transfer its t...
Prescription Drug Abuse and Workplace Absenteeism: Evidence from the 2008 2012 National Survey o n Drug Use and Health 2015 154 Prescription drug abuse has become increasingly prevalent in recent years, yet little is known about its impact on workplaces. This study investigated the relation between self-reported misuse of prescription pain relievers and other drugs and self-r...
A public sector knowledge production function 2019 219 There are no studies of the R&D-to-patenting relationship at the federal agency level. We estimate a public sector knowledge production function using federal agency patent application data over the years 2003 through 2014. We find that the patent ap...
