• Born to run behind? Persisting birth month effects on earnings 

      Røed Larsen, Erling; Solli, Ingeborg F. (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      The relative age effect is an established phenomenon in the literature, but estimates of its strength and duration vary. With Norwegian registry data we investigate how birth month affects earnings throughout the full ...
    • Is the Engel curve approach viable in the estimation of alternative PPPs? 

      Røed Larsen, Erling (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2014)
      Conventional estimates of purchasing power parities (PPP) rely on cross-country price data. Using Engel curves, Almås (2012) was able to show, however, that PPPs contain substantial bias. Since constructing conventional ...
    • Strategic sequencing behavior among owner-occupiers: the role played by sell-first movers in a housing recovery 

      Anundsen, Andrè Kallåk; Røed Larsen, Erling (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2014)

    • Testing for micro-efficiency in the housing market 

      Anundsen, Andre Kallåk; Røed Larsen, Erling (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      Using highly granular transaction-level data for the Norwegian housing market over the period 2002–2014, we investigate whether excessive prices persist or revert in repeat sales. Excessiveness in prices is detected by ...
    • The Engel curve of owner-occupied housing consumption 

      Røed Larsen, Erling (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2014)
      Housing is a major component of aggregate demand, and understanding how the demand for housing co-varies with income is useful for analysis and policy. While estimating housing consumption for tenants amounts to observing ...
    • Thick-market effects, housing heterogeneity, and the determinants of transaction seasonality 

      Nenov, Plamen T.; Røed Larsen, Erling; Sommervoll, Dag Einar (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2016)
      This article uses cross-sectional variation in transaction seasonality and a search-theoretic framework to develop a test for thick-market effects from matching efficiency. The test relates the extent of transaction ...
    • Using house prices to compute the price of housing in the CPI 

      Beatty, Timothy K. M.; Røed Larsen, Erling; Sommervoll, Dag Einar (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2010)
      Rental-equivalence is often used in computing price changes of owner-occupied housing in the CPI. We employ an alternative approach, employing interest-adjusted house prices. For Norway 2000-2008 our method yielded a 30% ...
