Eine empirische Analyse unter Berücksichtigung des Selektionseffekts AF Clement, Michel Christensen, Björn Albers, Sönke Guldner, Steffen AU Clement, M Christensen, B Albers, S Guldner, S SO Schmalenbachs Zeitschrift für betriebswirtschaftliche Forschung SN 0341-2687 VL 59 BP 198 EP 220 PY 2007 AB This article discusses the often ignored impact of sample selection bias in empirical research in business administration. Our empirical application based on the motion picture industry underlines the importance of this procedure. We find a significant impact of a nomination for the Academy Award (Oscar), if we follow the standard estimation procedures from the literature using regression analysis. However, if we correct our sample for the selection bias we do not find a significant impact of an Oscar nomination on box office anymore. DI 10.1007/BF03371693 ER
