Third, both chapter 7 and chaprter 13 filings are studied and, unlike previous work, the explanatory power of our model is comparatively high. We begin by briefly reviewing the related literature in section II. Section III describes the data utilized in this study, and the construction of econometric variables. This is followed in section IV by a discussion of the methodology employed. Our results are discussed in section V. The concluding section suggests avenues fo future research in this area.
