Discussion papers

Discussion papers presenterer forskningsstoff som sikter mot å ende opp som en internasjonal publikasjon og distribueres for kommentarer og forslag.

Et Discussion paper kan være lengre og fyldigere enn det som er vanlig for en artikkel ved at blant annet ugjennomsiktige mellomrekninger, resultater og bakgrunnsmateriale blir inkludert.

 

  • Parenthood and couples’ relative earnings in Norway 2005-2014

    Discussion Papers no. 873

    Janna Bergsvik, Ragni Hege Kitterød, and Kenneth Aarskaug Wiik

    Publisert:

    In the current paper, we investigate within-couple inequality in earnings using Norwegian register data on married and cohabiting couples.

  • Productivity growth, firm turnover and new varieties

    Discussion Papers no. 872

    Thomas von Brasch, Diana-Cristina Iancu, Arvid Raknerud

    Publisert:

    We reconcile two different strands of the literature: the literature on how new goods impact prices and the literature on productivity growth and firm turnover.

  • Encompassing tests for evaluating multi-step system forecasts invariant to linear transformations

    Discussion Papers no. 871

    Håvard Hungnes

    Publisert:

    The paper suggests two encompassing tests for evaluating multi-step system forecasts invariant to linear transformations.

  • Child care center staff composition and early child development

    Discussion Papers no. 870

    Nina Drange and Marte Rønning

    Publisert:

    We estimate effects of child care center staff composition on early child development. During the years our data covers, child care centers in Oslo were oversubscribed, and child care slots were allocated through a lottery.

  • Productivity dispersion and measurement errors

    Discussion Papers no. 869

    Thomas von Brasch, Diana-Cristina Iancu and Terje Skjerpen

    Publisert:

    We outline a novel procedure to identify the role of measurement errors in explaining the empirical dispersion in productivity across establishments.

  • Exact and inexact decompositions of international price indices

    Discussion Papers no. 868

    Pål Boug

    Publisert:

    Decompositions of international price indices are usually inexact in the sense that the underlying aggregator formula is not exactly reproduced.

  • The efficient combination of taxes on fuel and vehicles

    Discussion Papers no. 867

    Geir H. M. Bjertnæs

    Publisert:

    A tax on fuel combined with tax-exemptions or subsidies for purchase of fuel-efficient vehicles is implemented in many countries to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and other negative externalities from road traffic.

  • Churning in thick labor markets

    Discussion Papers no. 866

    Stefan Leknes

    Publisert:

    Using a very large comprehensive matched employer-employee panel of the Norwegian workforce (19 million observations), I find a higher likelihood of job change across sectors and occupations, namely labor churning, in populous areas.

  • Match quality in housing transactions

    Discussion Papers no. 865

    Erlend Eide Bø

    Publisert:

    Match quality, the part of housing value to the buyer which is unique for each buyer-house match, is important in several housing market matching models, but measuring it is difficult for an econ-ometrician.

  • Tony Atkinson and his legacy

    Discussion Papers no. 863

    Rolf Aaberge, François Bourguignon, Andrea Brandolini, Francisco H. G. Ferreira, Janet C. Gornick, John Hills, Markus Jäntti, Stephen P. Jenkins, Eric Marlier, John Micklewright, Brian Nolan, Thomas Piketty, Walter J. Radermacher, Timothy M. Smeeding, Nicholas H. Stern, Joseph Stiglitz, Holly Sutherland

    Publisert:

    This collective tribute highlights the range, depth and importance of Tony’s enormous legacy, the product of over fifty years’ work.

  • Regulation in the presence of adjustment costs and resource scarcity: transition dynamics and intertemporal effects

    Discussion Papers no.864

    Publisert:

    Announcement of future environmental regulation is likely to reduce current emissions in the combined presence of resource scarcity and adjustment costs.

  • Optimal location of renewable power

    Discussion Papers no. 862

    Henrik Bjørnebye, Cathrine Hagem, and Arne Lind

    Publisert:

    A decarbonization of the energy sector calls for large new investments in renewable energy production. When choosing the location for increased production capacity, the producer has typically limited incentives to take fully into account the investments costs of the subsequent need for increased grid capacity.

  • Immigration and the Dutch disease

    Discussion Papers no. 860

    Ådne Cappelen and Torbjørn Eika

    Publisert:

    The EU-enlargement in 2004 increased labour migration and affected the Norwegian labour market in particular. We study how this modified the Dutch disease effects during the resource boom 2004- 2013.

  • Identifying fertility contagion using random fertility shocks

    Discussion Papers no. 861

    Sara Cools and Rannveig Kaldager Hart

    Publisert:

    Does the fertility behavior of one individual affect the fertility choices of another? This study aims to estimate fertility contagion net of unobserved heterogeneity, using sibling networks as an empirical example.

  • Life expectancy and claiming behavior in a flexible pension system

    Discussion Papers no. 859

    Christian N. Brinch, Dennis Fredriksen, Ola Vestad

    Publisert:

    We study the relationship between early claiming of pensions and incentives in the highly flexible Norwegian public pension system, measuring incentives to claim based on an estimated model for expected longevity.

  • Long term impacts of class size in compulsory school

    Discussion Papers no. 858

    Edwin Leuven and Sturla A. Løkken

    Publisert:

    How does class size in compulsory school affect peoples’ long run education and earnings?

  • Labor supply analysis with non-convex Budget sets without the Hausman approach

    Discussion Papers no. 857

    John K. Dagsvik and Steinar Strøm

    Publisert:

    When the budget set is non-convex the application of the Hausman approach to estimate labor supply functions will in general be cumbersome because labor supply no longer depends solely on marginal criteria (first order conditions).

  • Phasing out coal and phasing in renewables – good or bad news for arctic gas producers?

    Discussion Papers no. 856

    Lars Lindholt and Solveig Glomsrød

    Publisert:

    This paper examines to what extent downscaling of global coal based electricity generation encourages gas demand and affects regional activity in gas production, with emphasis on the arctic regions.

  • Closing the gender gap in pensions. A microsimulation analysis of the Norwegian NDC pension system

    Discussion Papers no. 855

    Elin Halvorsen and Axel West Pedersen

    Publisert:

    In this paper we use an advanced micro-simulation model to study the distributional effects of the reformed Norwegian pension system with a particular focus on gender equality.

  • The path of labor supply adjustment: Sources of lagged responses to tax-benefit reforms

    Discussion Papers no. 854

    Zhiyang Jia and Trine E. Vattø

    Publisert:

    The standard static labor supply model ignores that it takes time for individuals to adjust to a tax-benefit reform.
