Abstract

This paper deals with the linear, exponential and Gompertz models and compares the bias and variance of a number of estimators of the growth-rate parameters of these models. Some of these estimators have been commonly recommended in the literature and others are most frequently used in empirical practice. The present analysis points to the strengths and weaknesses of the estimators in their usage. /// Cet article traite des modèles linéaires, exponentiels et de Gompertz, et compare le biais et la variance d'un certain nombre d'estimateurs des paramètres de croissance. Certains estimateurs sont souvent recommandés dans la littérature, alors que d'autres sont fréquemment utilisés en pratique. L'analyse que nous faisons ici présente les avantages et les inconvénients inhérents à l'emploi de ces estimateurs.
