Until recently estimates of demand functions for public goods were obtained (either with aggregate or micro survey data) using single equation estimation techniques. However, demand estimates may be biased when individuals' choices of communities are dependent upon the quantity and quality of public good provided. This paper spells out the nature of this bias (called Tiebout bias), and suggests and improved maximum-likelihood estimation technique. The technique is applied to a data set involving local public education in Michigan.
