5 Preface This thesis gives an account of research done in the period Most of the research has been done at the Department of Econometrics (Groningen University), and it was nished at the Department of Econometrics at the Vrije Universiteit (Amsterdam). A part of chapter 2 was written during my military service. First of all, I want to thank my promotor Geert Ridder, for sharing his knowledge of empirical econometrics, and giving inspiration and help when needed. Parts of this thesis have been published as Koning and Ridder (1991, 1993, 1994a and 1994b). I'm also indebted to Axel Borsch- Supan, Peter Kooreman, Ton Steerneman and Tom Wansbeek for their willingness to read and comment on the manuscript. I am grateful to my (former) collegues, both in Groningen and Amsterdam for a most pleasurable working environment. Especially, I want to thank Tineke Kroontje and Erik Wierstra for research assistance, Wietse Dol and Erik Frambach for LaT E X support, and Andries Lenstra, Angelika Eymann, Gerard van den Berg, Tom Wansbeek for discussions and (mental) support. Last, I want to thank my parents, especially for their help in 1993, when I served in the military. To them, I dedicate this thesis. Amsterdam, 14th February 1995 Ruud H. Koning
