A study of Navy first-term reenlistments

MetadataShow full item record
It occasionally happens in economic analyses that the correctly specified model contains variables for which no observed data has been collected. When the data in a linear regression model are crosssectional it is possible, under certain conditions on the nature of the variables, to estimate the independent effects of a specific set of explanatory variables on the dependent variable. A procedure for doing this is presented. A commonly used model of reenlistment behavior, for which the data base is cross-sectional, satisfies the requisite conditions. This permits the estimation of the independent effect of the military wage on reenlistment rate, as an illustration of the proposed procedure.
