CELL SIZES The estimation procedure described above is sensitive to sample size since it demands the specification of both dummy identifiers for each type of kin (cKrk ), and interaction effects that explore the difference in transfers between R and K in the absence of a given type of kin (coefficient matrix d). Moreover, within a multinomial logit model—which is the best theoretical match, since it simultaneously estimates the likelihood of different types of transfer relationships in comparison to zero-transfer relationships—sample-size becomes an even more significant issue insofar as this previous product of kin-specific samples and survival must be disaggregated into the relevant transfer categories.
