Personal introduction agencies in the United Kingdom: estimates of an average cost function

Samuel Cameron () and Alan Collins ()

Applied Economics Letters, 1998, vol. 5, issue 2, 81-83

Abstract: Economists have hitherto neglected the behaviour of the personal introduction agency sector. This paper presents estimates of the average cost function. It is found to have a U-shaped pattern. Average costs are also shown to be higher when the agency guarantees a minimum number of dates and turns away potential clients.
