For those who may concern, I have freely downloaded Yuval's article at:

Oggetto: Re: st: Re:

Steve and David,

I still suggest you take a look at the full version of my RSUE paper:
you can access it through science direct (www.sciencedirect.com). The
paper also includes the formula for calculating the t-test that I used
there. In addition, i believe you should take a look at the references
of our paper, particularly about the literature that deals with
hedonic indices

Note that RSUE in one of the best journals in the field of urban
economics and its editor (Dan McMillen) is a highly appreciated
statitistician.

What i did in the second part of the paper is a paired t-test after
controlling all the characteristics of the apartment: I applied a
methodology with a cross-sectional nature and simulated a situation
where you modify the position of each dwelling unit with identical
characteristics from frontline to non-frontline streets and
vice-versa: you can check into the statistical literature to see that
this is the  appropriate test in this case

I am not sure that you can do precisely what I did in the paper by
using -margins-: Maybe if -margins- can give you the standard
deviation of the point estimator (something equivalent to
-predict,stdp- but for a point estimator) - but this does not seem to
be precisely equivalent to what i did and, in fact, it seems that
while using this methodology - you loose information (you take only
the average characteristics instead of the characteristics of each
dwelling unit seperately).

Finally, note that in empirical work you can only do your best effort
to isolate the effects. You cannot get into perfection. Richard Arnott
(another very famous empirical urban economist) said in one of his
papers that isolating an effect via regression analysis is similar to
a New-Yorker who comes out of his apartment during a busy morning in
new York and tries to listen to a whisper
