Using all bids in parametric estimation of first-price auctions

Tong Li, Quang Vuong

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    Recently Laffont et al. (1995) have proposed an SNLLS estimator using winning bids only. Here, we derive a relationship between the means of observed bids and private values to propose an SNLLS estimator using all bids in first-price auctions.
