Seminario 18/18: Iñaki Permanyer (Centre d’Estudis Demogràphics, Barcelona)- Measuring poverty in multidimensional contexts

beggar-begging-homeless-2128

Abstract: When measuring multidimensional poverty it is reasonable to expect that the trade-offs between variable pairs can differ depending on whether the concerned pairs are complements or substitutes. Yet, currently existing approaches based on deprivation count distributions unrealistically assume that all pairs of variables are related in the same way, an unfortunate circumstance that undermines…

Seminario 18/13: Karoon Suksonghong (Burapha University) – Modeling the demand for inbound tourism to Thailand: Panel data approach

Thailand-Medical-Tourism-Market

Abstract This paper models the inbound tourism demand of Thailand by focusing on six major tourism markets, including China, Malaysia, South Korea, Japan, Russia, and India. Several economics variables widely used in the demand modeling literature were adopted. Besides, additional variables pertaining to environmental and security aspect were considered and incorporated into our investigated model….

Seminario 18/9: Xesús Pereira (U. Santiago de Compostela)- En la búsqueda de una formulación idónea para los cocientes de localización

Localizacion industrial

En el ámbito de la generación de tablas input-output regionales, se ha visto como la formulación de los cocientes de localización –desde las propuestas incipientes hasta la fórmula aumentada de Flegg– ha sufrido cambios. Ahora bien, las distintas modificaciones presentan cierta sencillez; en donde las tasas de variación del empleo o producción, así como el…

Seminario 17/18: M.M. Sánchez de la Vega (U. Murcia) – Estimation of Gross Value Added, Spatial Dependence and Panel Data: Evidence in Municipalities of Region of Murcia Case

municipios3

The aim of this work is to propose a statistical methodology in order to estimate the macromagnitud Gross Value Added per capita (GVApc) in the local geographical area. The procedure proposed consists of estimating a panel model which includes Griffith’s spatial filtering (1996, 2000) to capture the spatial dependence in the whole analyzed period. The…

Seminario 17/15: Magdalena Kapelko (Wroclaw University of Economics) – Measuring Productivity Change Accounting for Adjustment Costs: Evidence from the Food Industry in the European Union

productivity

Abstract This paper extends the measurement of dynamic productivity change over time to provide its full decomposition into economically meaningful components in the Data Envelopment Analysis framework. The dynamic approach accounts for dynamics of production decisions via adjustment costs and is visualized as a dynamic Luenberger productivity change indicator. The paper also estimates the dynamic…

Seminario 17/15: Small-scale fisheries in Brazil: a not-so-invisible problem

Brazil is proportionally a relatively unimportant player in the world fisheries scenario. However, small-scale fisheries (SSF) specifically are crucial for local livelihoods and the food security of millions of people, both on the coast and inland. Such fisheries provide more than 50% of the total Brazilian catches, suggesting that they can be highly impacting on…

Seminario 17/01: – Jose G. Clavel (U. Murcia)- Total Information Analysis: Representation of Categorical Data Through Clusters

clusters

Abstract: Due to the presence of duality, cluster analysis has been proposed to analyze Total Information Analysis super distance matrix instead of a row-column joint graph. But the same duality causes that the traditional methods of clustering are not always capable to produce meaningful results. In this paper following Nishisato (2014), the clustering with p-percentile…

Seminario 16/08: – Mohammed Dore (U. Brock)- Spain in the Euro Area: Causal consequences leading to multiple desequilibria.

map-europe-spain

We consider quarterly data of the Spanish economy from 1987 to 2013 to establish causal interconnections in a model free manner, using symbolic dynamics and permutation entropy (PE) and establish the exogeneity of adoption of the Euro (in Jan 1999) as the governing mechanism that leads to the key causal impacts on (1) interest rates,…

27 Noviembre: Seminario 2015/27 – M.M. Sánchez de la Vega (U. Murcia) – El rechazo al fraude fiscal en España: Antes y después de la Gran crisis

fraude fiscal

Abstract This paper analyzes the rejection of tax fraud in Spain before and after the Great Depression and studies the role of certain determinants of two categories: internal or individual, and contextual, social or institutional. We use a logit model obtaining that the rejection of tax evasion depends positively on individual variables such as age…

13 Noviembre: Seminario 2015/25 – M.V. Caballero (U. Murcia) – Gráficos de Recurrencia Simbólicos

grafcaosliue0

Abstract Análogamente a como los gráficos de recurrencia permiten visualizar la correlación integral de una serie temporal, definimos la herramienta gráfica para la correlación integral simbólica de una serie vectorial, son los gráficos de recurrencia simbólicos y gráficos de recurrencia simbólicos coloreados.Estos gráficos informan sobre la estructura de la serie como se ilustrara con distintos…
