In empirical work, it may be desirable to consider other specific functional forms such as the log-log and the semi-log (the log-linear and the linear-log) forms to see which form fits better the sample and the Laffer curve:
The linear functional form (a in Tables 2 and 4) has obvious simplicity.
Major results of this analysis are summarized as follows: A linear model, which inappropriate functional form for a Mexico silt loam soil.
However, it is seen from the very small value of [Beta] that this term can be TABULAR DATA OMITTED omitted from the general functional form, as is the case in the WLF-description.
If the constraints are not rejected, then the functional form corresponding to Equation 7 may be considered tenable.
These results are robust and hold regardless of functional form used or the inclusion of other gun control variables.
