A Bilateral Comparison of Fruit and Vegetable Consumption: United States and Canada AgEcon
Richards, Timothy J.; Patterson, Paul M..
Many public programs promote diets rich in fruits and vegetables based on evidence of the derived health benefits. Still, produce consumption in the United States lags behind other nations, even its most culturally similar neighbor--Canada. This study uses a structural latent variable model to test the role played by quality and health information in explaining observed differences in produce consumption. The Alchian-Allen effect predicts that higher quality, higher absolute margin produce will be exported, suggesting quality may be an important demand factor in importing nations such as Canada. The results show that dietary health information is significant in expanding demands. Quality also promotes fruit consumption in Canada.
Tipo: Journal Article Palavras-chave: Alchian-Allen effect; Fruit and vegetable trade; Health information; Latent variable; MIMIC model; Produce quality; Food Consumption/Nutrition/Food Safety.

Estimating Willingness to Pay for E10 fuel: a contingent valuation study AgEcon
Bhattacharjee, Sanjoy; Petrolia, Daniel R.; Herndon, Cary W., Jr..
In this study, we measure willingness to pay for E10 fuel by US consumers employing a contingent valuation technique in a simultaneous latent variable equation framework. The simultaneous equation framework helps us to understand the way consumers' perceptions about ethanol are developed and influence their respective buying behavior.
Tipo: Conference Paper or Presentation Palavras-chave: E10 ethanol; Perceptions and economic choice; Latent variable; Random utility models; Institutional and Behavioral Economics; Research and Development/Tech Change/Emerging Technologies; Research Methods/ Statistical Methods; C12; C35; D12.

Per Capita Income, Human Capital, and Inequality Convergence: A Latent-Variable Approach AgEcon
Deepak, Sri Devi; Seale, James L., Jr.; Moss, Charles B..
The purpose of this paper is to empirically analyze determinants of income-level convergence. Specifically, the effect of human capital on per capita income is estimated for 22 countries of the organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD). Additionally, the effects of openness in international trade and investment and government expenditures on per capita income are estimated and evaluated. Human capital is modeled as a latent variable, and results indicate that it is a significant factor in explaining the variation of per capita income levels among the OECD countries. Further, the entire time path of human capital is utilized to explain deviations in per capita income.
Tipo: Journal Article Palavras-chave: Convergence; Human capital; Inequality; Latent variable; OECD.
