Transport properties of Ba1-xKxBiO3 and Nd2-xCexCuO4 are calculated by solving the Boltzmann equation using the electronic energy-band structures obtained with the local-density full-potential linearized augmented-plane-wave method. For Ba1-xKxBiO3 the calculated Hall coefficient RH is (two times) larger than experiment and has the correct (negative) sign. For Nd2-xCexCuO4 a positive Hall coefficient is obtained for the magnetic field oriented perpendicular to the Cu-O planes. This is to be compared with a negative experimental value found for x
