cesam.gms : Cross Entropy SAM Estimation

**Description**

CESAM illustrates a cross entropy technique for estimating the cells of a consistent SAM assuming that the initial data are inconsistent and measured with error. The method is applied to a stylized macro SAM for Mozambique. Some macro control totals are assumed known with error, and also all the row and column totals are assumed known only with error. We assume that the user can specify a prior estimate of the standard error of the estimates of the row and column sums and of the macro control totals.

CROSS ENTROPY
RED ALERT!!!
The ENTROPY DIFFERENCE procedure uses LOGARITHMS: negative flows in
the SAM are NOT GOOD!!!
The option used here is to detect any negative flows and net them out
of their respective symmetric cells, e.g.
negative flow column to row is set to zero
and added to corresponding row to column as a positive number.
The entropy difference method can then be implemented.
After balancing, the negative SAM values are returned to their
original cells for printing.

Define variable bounds on errors
Start from assumed prior knowledge of the standard error (perhaps due
to measurement error) of the column sums. Below, we assume that all
column sums have a standard error of 5%. This is a Bayesian prior,
not a maintained hypothesis.
The estimated error is weighted sum of elements in an error support
set:
ERR(ii) = sum(jwt, W(ii,jwt)*VBAR(ii,jwt))
where the W's are estimated in the CE procedure.
The prior variance of these errors is given by:
(sigmay(ii))**2 = sum(jwt, WBAR(ii,jwt)*(VBAR(ii,jwt))**2)
where the WBAR's are the prior on the weights.
The VBARs are chosen to define a domain for the support set of +/- 3
standard errors. The prior on the weights, WBAR, are then calculated
to yield the specified prior on the standard error, sigmay.
In Robinson, Cattaneo, and El-Said (2001), we specify prior weights
(WBAR) that are uniform and set the prior standard error by the
choice of support set, VBAR. In that paper, we use a three-weight
specification (jwt / 1*3 /);
We define two sets of errors with separate weights, W1 and W2. The
first is for specifying errors on column sums, the second for errors
on macro aggregates (defined in the set macro).
$offText
* First, define standard error for errors on column sums.
sigmay1(ii) = 0.05*target0(ii);
* This code assumes a prior mean of zero and a two-parameter
* distribution with specified prior standard error. There are three
* weights, W(ii,jwt), to be estimated. The actual moments are estimated
* as part of the estimation procedure.
$onText
* Set constants for 3-weight error distribution
vbar1(ii,"1") = -3*sigmay1(ii);
vbar1(ii,"2") = 0;
vbar1(ii,"3") = -3*sigmay1(ii);
wbar1(ii,"1") = 1/18;
wbar1(ii,"2") = 16/18;
wbar1(ii,"3") = 1/18;
$offText
$onText
This code assumes a prior mean of zero and a prior value of kurtosis
consistent with a prior normal distribution with mean zero, variance
sigmay**2, and kurtosis equal to 3*sigmay**4. The addition of a prior
on kurtosis requires estimation of 5 weights (jwt = 5);
The prior weights wbar are specified so that:
sum(jwt, wbar(ii,jwt)*vbar(ii,jwt)**4) = 3*sigmay(ii,jwt)**4
as well as defining the variance as above.
The prior weights and support set are also symmetric, so the prior
on all odd moments is zero. The choice of +/- 1 standard error
for vbar(ii,"2") and vbar(ii,"4") is arbitrary.
The actual moments are estimated as part of the estimation procedure.

Define bounds for cell values
Defining equation SAMMAKE over non-zero elements of A ($Abar1(ii,jj))
guarantees that the zero structure of the original SAM is maintained
in the estimated SAM. Fixing all the zero entries to zero greatly
reduces the size of the estimation problem. If it is desired to
allow a zero entry to become nonzero in the estimated SAM, then
the condition $ABAR1(ii,jj) must be replaced with a new set that
does not include cells which are currently zero but may be nonzero.

(alternative formulation) MCP Formulation
Add code restating the nonlinear-programming (NLP) minimization
problem as an MCP problem solved using the MCP solver.
The code below is a translation of the NLP problem into a
mixed complementarity problem (MCP), which can be solved
using an MCP solver in GAMS. The translation was done using
a preliminary version of a program called NLP2MCP written
by Michael Ferris and Jeffrey Horn (1998) at the University
of Wisconsin. The translation adds "shadow price" or
complementarity variables for all constraint equations and
also provides equations for all the first-order conditions
for minimizing the objective function. The resulting model
is square with as many variables as equations.

Matching Set Elements
New features in GAMS allow one to introduce conditional statements
controlling execution in cases where certain items match up . The
syntax involves using the commands
sameas(setelement1,setelement2)
or
diag(setelement,setelement)
the SAMEAS command returns a true false indicator which is true
if the text string defining the name of set element 1 equals that
for setelement 2 and false otherwise. DIAG returns a 1 under
equality and a zero otherwise.
For example
x = sum((i,j)$(not sameas(i,j)), z(i)*z(j));
or
x = sum((i,j)$(diag(i,j) = 0), z(i)*z(j));
would exclude the cases where i = j from the sum
while
x = sum((i,j)$(sameas(i,"case1") or sameas(j,"case2")), z(i) + z(j));
would only include cases where the text for i equaled the string
"case1" or the text for j corresponded to "case2."
