  1. Predicting response rates further updated 

    Schmid, Basil; Axhausen, Kay W. (2019)
    Arbeitsberichte Verkehrs- und Raumplanung
    This note updates the detailed analysis of response burden and response rates reported in Axhausen and Weis (2010) and Axhausen et al. (2015). It includes a first analysis of the co-operation rates of the sample. The analysis of the richer data set shows that the drop in response rate is proportional to the length and complexity of the questionnaire and gives updated logistic regression results to predict the response rates.

  3. The Impact of Policy Awareness: Evidence from Vehicle Choices Response to Fiscal Incentives 

    Cerruti, Davide; Daminato, Claudio; Filippini, Massimo (2019)
    Economics Working Paper Series
    Isolating the role of limited knowledge, psychological frictions and policy characteristics is key when evaluating a public program and designing future policies. This paper explores the role of awareness about the presence of fiscal programs in determining their impact on individual choices. Our identification strategy exploits quasi-experimental variation in the introduction of fiscal incentives aimed at promoting the purchase of energy ...

  4. An approximation of the distribution of learning estimates in macroeconomic models 

    Kingeski Galimberti, Jaqueson (2019)
    KOF Working Papers
    Adaptive learning under constant-gain allows persistent deviations of beliefs from equilibrium so as to more realistically reflect agents’ attempt of tracking the continuous evolution of the economy. A characterization of these beliefs is therefore paramount to a proper understanding of the role of expectations in the determination of macroeconomic outcomes. In this paper we propose a simple approximation of the first two moments (mean ...

  6. Locating Public Facilities: Theory and Micro Evidence from Paris 

    Loumeau, Gabriel (2019)
    KOF Working Papers
    This paper investigates the problem of the optimal location of public facilities. I develop a quantifiable model in which the central planner decides on a location strategy, which includes the geographical location and the capacity of public facilities, while anticipating how individuals and firms will react. The central planner's objective is to maximize aggregate welfare. I calibrate the model to fit the economic and geographic ...

  9. A Preliminary Overview of Emerging Trends for Industrialized Construction in the United States 

    Pullen, Tyler; Hall, Daniel M.; Lessing, Jerker (2019)
    This paper seeks to capture and analyze the recent growth in industrialized construction in North America from new and existing companies. The concepts and technologies of industrialized construction (IC) - such as prefabrication, preassembly, modular, offsite, and volumetric construction - are relatively well-established. However, the sudden attraction of large-scale investments for entrepreneurial firms adopting these strategies is ...

  10. Chinese development assistance and household welfare in sub-Saharan Africa 

    Martorano, Bruno; Metzger, Laura; Sanfilippo, Marco (2019)
    EUI Working Paper RSCAS
    We combine data on Chinese development projects with data from Demographic and Health Surveys to study the impact of Chinese aid on household welfare in sub-Saharan Africa. We use a novel methodology to test the effect of Chinese aid on three important development outcomes: education, health, and nutrition. For each outcome, we use difference-in-difference estimations to compare household areas near Chinese project sites to control areas ...

  11. Analyse des Angebots von Catch a Car in Basel 

    Becker, Henrik; Axhausen, Kay W. (2018)
    Arbeitsberichte Verkehrs- und Raumplanung
    Catch a Car wurde im August 2014 als erstes free-floating Carsharing-Angebot der Schweiz lanciert. Mittels einer wissenschaftlichen Begleitstudie hat das Institut für Verkehrsplanung und Transportsysteme der ETH Zürich seither die Auswirkungen des free-floating Carsharing auf das Verkehrsverhalten seiner Mitglieder und auf das städtische Verkehrssystem untersucht. In einer ersten Studie in 2014 und 2015 wurden Informationen zu den ...

  13. Management of interdisciplinary research groups: a comparison of traditional and agile approaches 

    Fonseca, Jimeno A. (2017)
    The purpose of this study is to compare a set of practices that could best be suited to manage an interdisciplinary, multi-cultural and distributed team. The study contrasts traditional “waterfall” management techniques against agile methodologies such as SCRUM and Kanban. Both methods were tested in real practice in a distributed, multicultural, and inter-disciplinary team known as the CEA team 1 for one year.

  14. Physical risk framework 

    Westcott, Mark; Ward, John; Surminski, Swenja; et al. (2019)
    The world is currently on track to see substantial climate change throughout the 21st century. As well as bringing higher temperatures, changes in precipitation and a range of other impacts, climate change will also influence the likelihood and intensity of extreme weather events. Collectively, these ‘physical risks’, threaten the interests of investors and lenders, especially those with interests in real estate and infrastructure assets. ...

  15. Energy-related financial literacy and bounded rationality in appliance replacement attitudes: Evidence from Nepal 

    Filippini, Massimo; Kumar, Nilkanth; Srinivasan, Suchita (2019)
    Economics Working Paper Series
    Bounded rationality is an example of an important behavioral failure responsible for the energy-efficiency gap, whereby agents under-invest in energy-efficient technologies. One means of addressing this is by improving the energy-related financial literacy of households, which is defined as the combination of energy knowledge and cognitive abilities that are needed in order for agents to take sound decisions with respect to investment in ...

  17. Finding Optimal Solutions With Neighborly Help 

    Burjons, Elisabet; Frei, Fabian; Hemaspaandra, Edith; et al. (2019)
    Can we efficiently compute optimal solutions for a hard problem from optimal solutions to neighboring (i.e., locally modified) instances? For example, can we efficiently compute an optimal coloring for a graph from optimal colorings for all one-edge-deleted subgraphs? Studying such questions not only gives detailed insight into the structure of the problem itself, but also into the complexity of related problems; most notably graph theory's ...
