Example text

2b), DV1983 has been replaced by a variable measuring the percentage of the value of MoD contracts priced by competition. 4 λ is the speed with which actual employment adjusts to its desired level; α is the elasticity of employment with respect to output; is the ‘corrected’ elasticity of employment; R 2 is adjusted for degrees of freedom; F is the statistic testing the null hypothesis that all coefficients in the estimated equation are zero; and LM is the Lagrange multiplier statistic testing for the presence of first-order serial correlation.

With regard to the lagged dependent variable (Lt−1 ), however, the estimated coefficient (c = 1 − λ) in Eqs (1) and (2a) was not significantly different from zero. This suggests that λ does not differ significantly from one and that employment adjusts to its desired level within a year (the periodicity to which the data relate); but these results could reflect the method used to construct the data, and hence no further reference will be made to the lagged adjustment process. The dummy variable in Eq.

Two employment elasticities can be distinguished. The first is the unadjusted elasticity ( ), which is given by the estimated regression coefficient on output ( = a = λ/α). e. λ). A second, ‘corrected’ elasticity ( ), which does not include the speed of adjustment (λ), can also be computed and is given by the reciprocal of the short-run returns to labour ( = 1/α). Initially, the model was estimated for employment attributable to MoD defence equipment expenditure (see Eq. 4). Output was measured by the value of MoD expenditure on defence equipment in the United Kingdom at constant (1995) prices.
