No 271037, 1990 Annual meeting, August 5-8, Vancouver, Canada from American Agricultural Economics Association (New Name 2008: Agricultural and Applied Economics Association)
The Box-Cox methodology has been extensively applied since it·was first introduced in 1964. This study establishes that the function currently used as a basis for implementing the Box-Cpx methodology is not a valid probability qensity function. The proper density function associated with the random variable underlying the Box-Cox methodology is derived.· Simulation evidence documents that the original Box-cox approach can result in considerable bias.
