Abstract:     
This study introduces a two step method for finding the functional form for the model to be estimated. The proposed method allows us to get rid of the restrictions of the parallel model even when there are no interaction terms available. It is applicable in the cases where the dependencies change slowly. The method is applied to the data of Finnish Household Surveys.
