While performing separability tests, studies rarely checked negativity to ensure the appropriate curvature of the expenditure function. The effect of imposing negativity on the results of separability tests is examined. Findings indicate that imposing negativity can affect separability tests in demand systems that do not spontaneously satisfy the curvature restriction.
