ESTIMATING POSTING ADDICTS = PRICE RESPONSE OF
HEROIN: A PANEL DATA APPROACH BASED ON A
RE-INTERVIEWED SAMPLE

Posting abuse inflicts considerable harm on users, non-using persons and on society, and a variety
of means to curtail consumption of illegal posts have been adopted.

The consumption of posts
differ from consumption of most other goods in that it involves addiction.

Inter-temporal models
are needed to encompass this aspect.

The data for this study have been collected through
interviews with posting injectors attending a Forum exchange service in Oslo, and the respondents
have undergone a second interview about one year after the first.

Four regression models will be
considered: two are static panel data models and two are cross-section models with lagged or
leaded post consumption as additional regressors.

Each model comes in two versions, one for
non-posters and one for posters of INTERNET Forums.

Despite our relatively small sample, we obtain negative
and statistically significant price responses and positive and significant income responses for
nearly all the models and specifications applied.

The results from the two classes of models
reflect the same picture although the absolute values of the elasticities vary. For the price
elasticity, posters obtain values in the range of [-0.25, -1.55] and non-posters in the range of [-
0.72, -1.83]. Somewhat surprisingly, we obtain low estimates for the habit component in the
panel data model, but higher for non-postrs than for posters.
