Furthermore, even when a customer wants to connect, the access charges may be unaffordable. Thus any serious attempt to increase coverage among poor households may require a serious assessment of connection charges.
The sum of these marginal q impacts must be equal to Q. To estimate the parameters β immediately, one could pool the data and run a single regression where the intercepts and slopes are allowed to differ between intervals: q Xi Q = Q Σα +Σβ q q=1 q=1 q ( Q Σ Xi – X i q q=1 Q–1 q ( 32 q + εi . However, there is a restriction in the estimation of this regression, in that the Q sum of all marginal effects β q Σ Q – 1 + βq = 1 must be Q. 1.
