No 26631, NBER Working Papers from National Bureau of Economic Research, Inc
We propose a formal definition of transparency in empirical research and apply it to structural estimation in economics. We discuss how some existing practices can be understood as attempts to improve transparency, and we suggest ways to improve current practice, emphasizing approaches that impose a minimal computational burden on the researcher. We illustrate with examples.
