      Arcidiacono, P; Bayer, P; Bugni, FA; James, J (Advances in Econometrics, 2013-01-01)
      Many dynamic problems in economics are characterized by large state spaces which make both computing and estimating the model infeasible. We introduce a method for approximating the value function of highdimensional dynamic ...
    • Beyond signaling and human capital: Education and the revelation of ability 

      Arcidiacono, P; Bayer, P; Hizmo, A (American Economic Journal: Applied Economics, 2010-10-01)
      We provide evidence that college graduation plays a direct role in revealing ability to the labor market. Using the NLSY79, our results suggest that ability is observed nearly perfectly for college graduates, but is revealed ...

    • Estimating equilibrium models of sorting across locations 

      Bayer, P; Timmins, C (Economic Journal, 2007-03-01)
      While there is growing interest in measuring the size and scope of local spillovers, it is well understood that such spillovers cannot be distinguished from unobservable local attributes using solely the observed location ...

      Bayer, P; Keohane, N; Timmins, C (Journal of Environmental Economics and Management, 2009-07-01)
      Conventional hedonic techniques for estimating the value of local amenities rely on the assumption that households move freely among locations. We show that when moving is costly, the variation in housing prices and wages ...
