```Your formulas to calculate elasticities seem to be wrong (you should
substract 1 when calculating own price elasticities) Check the
following reference for the correct expressions.

Also, it would be easy to estimate the full AIDS with the nlsur

If you use R, you could also use Arne Henningsen's micEcon package
