Program on the Global Demography of Aging [Harvard University] Working Paper: “Health gradients in South Africa: Inequalities in the measure of the beholder,” by Carlos Riumallo-Herl,David Canning, Ryan Wagner, Chodziwaddiza Kabudula, and Mark Collinson (PGDA Working Paper No. 139, May 2017, .pdf format, 30p.).

Abstract:

As the literature on health inequalities continues to grow very few studies have tested the sensibility of this measure to the choice of welfare indicator. In this paper we use data from an aging survey in South Africa to evaluate the health gradients using two measures of economic status: consumption per capita and an asset index. In particular, we measure the concentration indexes for a variety of health indicators ranging from general health service utilization to individual self-reported and biomarker outcomes. We find that the concentration indexes for different health indicators differ across economic indicators suggesting that the choice of welfare indicator can lead to different estimations of inequalities. In line with other studies, these results advocate for greater caution when selecting the economic indicator in the analysis of inequalities and for more explicit testing of different indicators in future studies. Overall, the results call for a greater understanding of how SES can influence health to generate appropriate measurements of health inequalities.

US Census Bureau Working Paper: “How Well Do Individuals Report Supplement Nutritional Assistance Program (SNAP) Take Up in Household Surveys?” by Sandy Colby, Jose Debora, and Misty L. Heggeness (SIPP Working Paper No. 276, December 2016, .pdf format, 26p.).

Abstract:

This paper assesses the quality of survey-based reporting of SNAP participation by using linked administrative records from three states, Illinois, Maryland, and Virginia, covering the years 2009-2012. We compare reports of SNAP participation from the 2008 panel of the Survey of Income and Program Participation (SIPP) with SNAP administrative records, evaluating the consistency of reported SNAP participation across the two data sources and identifying characteristics of individuals associated with conflicting reports.

We find evidence of a slight over reporting of SNAP participation in the SIPP for the combined states and years evaluated. Though the vast majority of responses in the survey align with the administrative data, approximately 4.5 percent of the observations can be classified as either a false positive or a false negative. False positives, defined as occurring when a survey respondent reports that they receive benefits, but do not appear in the administrative data, are more likely to occur for the foreign born relative to those born in the U.S, for non-Hispanic Blacks and Hispanics than for non-Hispanic Whites, and for unmarried adults and married adults without children. Conversely, rural residents, those with less than a high school education, women, unmarried parents, and the unemployed are more likely to have false negative responses (appearing as a beneficiary in the administrative data, but not reporting receipt in the survey). Both false positives and false negatives are more likely to occur when survey data on SNAP participation are imputed, raising the possibility that current imputation methods for this survey could be improved by incorporating administrative data.

Centro De Estudios Monetarios Y Financieros [Madrid, Spain] Working Papers:

[1710] “Managers and Productivity Differences,” by Nezih Guner, Andrii Parkhomenko, Gustavo Ventura.

Abstract:

We document that for a group of high-income countries (i) mean earnings of managers tend to grow faster than for non managers over the life cycle; (ii) the earnings growth of managers relative to non managers over the life cycle is positively correlated with output per worker. We interpret this evidence through the lens of an equilibrium life-cycle, span-of-control model where managers invest in their skills. We parameterize this model with U.S. observations on managerial earnings, the size-distribution of plants and macroeconomic aggregates. We then quantify the relative importance of exogenous productivity differences, and the size-dependent distortions emphasized in the misallocation literature. Our fi?ndings indicate that such distortions are critical to generate the observed differences in the growth of relative managerial earnings across countries. Thus, observations on the relative earnings growth of managers become natural targets to discipline the level of distortions. Distortions that halve the growth of relative managerial earnings (a move from the U.S. to Italy in our data), lead to a reduction in managerial quality of 27% and to a reduction in output of about 7% ? more than half of the observed gap between the U.S. and Italy. We ?find that cross-country variation in distortions accounts for about 42% of the cross-country variation in output per worker gap with the U.S.

[1709] “Testing Distributional Assumptions Using a Continuum of Moments,” by Dante Amengual, Marine Carrasco, and Enrique Sentana.

Abstract:

We propose specification tests for parametric distributions that compare theoretical and empirical characteristic functions. Our proposal is the continuum of moment conditions analogue to the usual overidentifying restrictions test, which takes into account the correlation between influence functions for different argument values. We derive its asymptotic distribution for fixed regularization parameter and when this vanishes with the sample size. We show its consistency against any deviation from the null, study its local power and compare it with existing tests. An extensive Monte Carlo exercise confirms that our proposed tests display good power in finite samples against a variety of alternatives.

[1708] “Normality Tests for Latent Variables,” by Tincho Almuzara, Dante Amengual, and Enrique Sentana.

Abstract

We exploit the rationale behind the Expectation Maximization algorithm to derive simple to implement and interpret score tests of normality in the innovations to the latent variables in state space models against generalized hyperbolic alternatives, including symmetric and asymmetric Student ts. We decompose our tests into third and fourth moment components, and obtain one-sided likelihood ratio analogues, whose asymptotic distribution we provide. When we apply them to a cointegrated dynamic factor model which combines the expenditure and income versions of US aggregate real output to improve its measurement, we reject normality if the sample period extends beyond the Great Moderation.

US Bureau of Economic Analysis Working Paper: “Offshore Profit Shifting and Domestic Productivity Measurement,” by Fatih Guvenen, Raymond J. Mataloni Jr., Dylan G. Rassier, and Kim J. Ruhl (WP2017-2, March 2017, .pdf format, 38p.).

Abstract:

Official statistics display a significant slowdown in U.S. aggregate productivity growth that begins in 2004. In this paper, we investigate a source of mismeasurement in official statistics, which arises from o shore profit shifting by multinational enterprises operating in the United States. This profit shifting causes part of the economic activity generated by these multinationals to be attributed to their foreign affiliates, leading to an understatement of measured U.S. gross domestic product. Profit-shifting activity has increased significantly since the mid-1990s, resulting in an understatement of measured U.S. aggregate productivity growth. We construct adjustments to correct for the effects of profit shifting on measured gross domestic product. The adjustments raise aggregate productivity growth rates by 0.1 percent annually for 1994-2004, 0.25 percent annually for 2004{2008, and leave productivity unchanged after 2008; Our adjustments mitigate, but do not overturn, the productivity slowdown in the official statistics. The adjustments are especially large in R&D-intensive industries, which are most likely to produce intangible assets that are easy to move across borders. The adjustments boost value added in these industries by as much as 8.0 percent annually in the mid-2000s.

US Bureau of Economic Analysis Working Paper: “Quasi-Corporations and Institutional Sectors in the U.S. National Accounts,” by Dylan G. Rassier, Melissa J. Braybrooks, Jason W. Chute, and Howard I. Krakower (WP2017-1, July 2016, .pdf format, 62p.).

Abstract:

The System of National Accounts (SNA) classifies each resident institutional unit to one of five institutional sectors. The corporations sector in the SNA includes a concept of quasicorporations, which are unincorporated enterprises that have no legal status separate from their owners but are engaged in market production and act independently of their owners. In the U.S. national income and product accounts (NIPAs), the treatment of quasi-corporations is currently not consistent with recommendations in the SNA. In particular, unincorporated enterprises owned by households and governments span more than one sector for production and income measures. In addition, some unincorporated enterprises that may not qualify as quasicorporations are treated as quasi-corporations and vice versa. The result yields a lack of alignment between measures of production and income generated in production within a given institutional sector. This paper summarizes data on unincorporated enterprises in the U.S. economy in order to inform the sectoral treatment of U.S. quasi-corporations under SNA recommendations.
