You have to write your own code to calculate the elasticities. You can calculate them for mean values of expenditure and use -nlcom- to get their standard errors after estimating the system via nlsur. Alternatively, you can calculate elasticities for each household using -predictnl- This is a quick example of the first approach on a 7 good system. First I define mean price indexes and additional variables such as the sums of a and g, then i calculate the elasticities. "lgastotal" is log total expenditure, "lprecio" is log price, "elasgasto" is expenditure elasticity. ---- * Share means and price means quietly { foreach x of varlist share* lprecio* lgastototal { sum `x' scalar `x'mean=r(mean) } * Price indexes glo asum "_b[a1]*lprecio1mean" forv i=2(1)7 { glo asum "${asum} + _b[a`i']*lprecio`i'mean" } glo gsum "" forv i=1(1)7 { forv j=1(1)7 { glo gsum "${gsum} + 0.5*_b[g`i'`j']*lprecio`i'mean*lprecio`j'mean" } } glo ap "4.7 + ${asum} ${gsum}" glo bp "_b[b1]*lprecio1mean" forv i=2(1)7 { glo bp "${bp} + _b[b`i']*lprecio`i'mean" } glo bp "(exp(${bp}))" * Mus forv i=1(1)7 { glo mu`i' "_b[b`i'] + 2*_b[l`i']/${bp}*(lgastototalmean-(${ap}))" } forv j=1(1)7 { glo gsum2`j' "" forv k=1(1)7 { glo gsum2`j' "${gsum2`j'} + _b[g`j'`k']*lprecio`k'mean" } } } forv i=1(1)7 { forv j=1(1)7 { glo delta=cond(`i'==`j',1,0) glo mu`i'`j' "_b[g`i'`j'] - ${mu`i'}*(_b[a`j'] ${gsum2`j'}) -_b[l`i']*_b[b`j']/${bp}*(lgastototalmean - (${ap}))^2" * If expression is too long, split it cap nlcom (elasgasto`i': ${mu`i'}/share`i'mean + 1) (mu`i'`j': ${mu`i'`j'}), post noheader if _rc { qui nlcom (elasgasto`i': ${mu`i'}/share`i'mean + 1) (mu`i'`j'f: (1e+2)*(${mu`i'`j'})), post noheader qui nlcom (elasgasto`i': _b[elasgasto`i']) (mu`i'`j': _b[mu`i'`j'f]/(1e+2)), post noheader } * Uncompensated price elasticity nlcom (elasgasto`i': _b[elasgasto`i']) (elpnc`i'`j': _b[mu`i'`j']/share`i'mean - ${delta}) , post noheader * Compensated price elasticity nlcom (elpc`i'`j': _b[elpnc`i'`j'] + _b[elasgasto`i']*share`j'mean), noheader qui est restore quaidsc } } As for the elasticity for each household, you can use code similar to this inside a loop over equations after defining mu: predictnl elasgasto`i'= (${mu`i'})/share`i' + 1 , se(seelasgasto`i') Hope this helps, _______________________ Jorge Eduardo Pérez Pérez On Tue, Oct 4, 2011 at 11:01 AM, Nick Cox <n.j.cox@durham.ac.uk> wrote: > > Nothing from me on elasticities. > > Nick > n.j.cox@durham.ac.uk > > > -----Original Message----- > From: owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu [mailto:owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu] On Behalf Of Mintewab Bezabih > Sent: 04 October 2011 15:56 > To: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu > Subject: SV: st: problem with nlsur quaids > > Thanks so much Nick.
