Correcting measurement errors in transitions models based on retrospective panel data

Shaimaa Yassin (Université de Neuchatel)

31 octobre 2017  -  12:15-13:30, salle Internef 231

We propose in this paper a dynamic n-state transition model to correct for measurement errors that could arise for example from recall and/or design bias, in retrospective panels. Our model allows for the correction of the errors in both transitions and stocks, when very little auxiliary information is available, over a long period of time, and taking into consideration the macroeconomic conjunctural fluctuations. The technique suggested shows that it is sufficient to have population moments (for at least one point in time) to correct such misreporting biases. We show that using a Simulated Method of Moments, one can estimate a transition- and time-specific correction matrix for the labor market flows, in a biased retrospective panel. Using retrospective and contemporaneous data from Egypt, we estimate the model and show the significance and robustness of our correction. We then show through a reform evaluation application that neglecting such measurement error in the data would have produced significantly different and misleading results.
