Title: Models of Skill Substitution and Transformation in an Occupationally Disaggregated Labour Market

Authors: Dean J. Parham and G. J. Ryland


This 1978 paper is about estimating elasticities for the ORANI model -- in particular the elasticity of substitution between labour of different types. Literature is surveyed, and a theoretical approach outlined, but discussions of data and regression results are deferred to a later report.
