The theoretical parameter restrictions of the present model will be summarised before any explanation of the above reference specification is carried out (incidentally none of these contradict the existing empirical findings): R > 0, P > 0, r > 0; c > 0, 0 < 8 < 1; r + 5 > c; bx > 0, b2 > 0, bt + b2 < 1; b0 > 0; a 0 > 0, a t > 0.

The probability distribution of Cjj is accordingly independent of j (hence the notation '£„'). Implicitly, my model embraces both extreme cases, depending on the interpretation. In addition, however, no allowance is made in the aggregate for any effects on the CJn due to interdependence (such as increased skewness or the like). e. the individuals j , were stochastically dependent, then FYn as constructed would not correspond to the theoretical distribution function of the characteristic ¥„ in this population (except, of course, in the extreme case of perfect positive correlation).
