Estimating the uncertainty of relative risk aversion
Applied Financial Economics Letters, 2008, vol. 4, issue 1, 25-27
This note reports estimates of the coefficient of relative risk aversion, using a method recently proposed by Azar (2006). In contrast to his work, the complete information of US stock return data over the period 1926 to 2002 is utilized. Moreover, a bootstrap procedure is applied to estimate the associated uncertainty. Point estimates close to 3.5 are obtained. However, ranging from 1.4 to 7.1, the 95% confidence interval is wide.
