Abstract: This paper examines methods for constructing confidence intervals around elasticity and flexibility point estimates, including three bootstrap-based appipaches, a Taylor's series approximatioq, and approaches proposed by Fieller and Scheffe. Results show that all methods except Scheffe's worked reasonably well, but the Fieller and Taylor's series methods outperformed the bootstrapped-generated intervals.
