This tool allows you to accurately estimate parameters using the Anderson-Hsiao method based on your input dataset.

## How to Use the Anderson-Hsiao Estimator Calculator

To use this calculator, fill in the following fields:

**Market Value of Property:**Enter the current market value of the property.**Redevelopment Value of Property:**Enter the projected value of the property after redevelopment.**Cost of Redevelopment:**Enter the total cost expected to be spent on redevelopment.**Discount Rate (%):**Enter the discount rate as a percentage to account for the time value of money.

Press the “Calculate” button to view the result in the provided result field.

## Calculation Method

This calculator uses the following formula to compute the Anderson-Hsiao estimator:

`Estimation Value (E) = (Redevelopment Value - Market Value - Cost of Redevelopment) / (1 + Discount Rate)`

This formula helps in determining the profitability and feasibility of redeveloping a property by estimating the net gain or loss.

## Limitations

While the Anderson-Hsiao estimator serves as a useful tool for preliminary analysis, it has the following limitations:

- It does not account for unforeseen costs or changes in market conditions.
- The discount rate must be accurately estimated, which can be challenging.
- The accuracy of the calculator depends on the accuracy of the input values.
