Re: st: nlsur function evaluator program QUAIDS with demographics

Hi All,
Poi's command is the easiest and best  way to solve  demand system. Faria Hug claimed to have  estimated the 
elasticities with Poi command and have used bootstrap to obtain standard errors of the 
expenditure elasticity but  having trouble obtaining them for the 
compensated and uncompensated elasticities. But i think Poi is working on it. I think Poi himself will want to talk. I think Faria Hug is following this tread too.


Thanks

The problem of -quaids-  it does not allow one to have/compute standard errors of elasticities. That is why I was trying to write my program and estimate those through -nlcom-.

Thanks, anyway
