The cemmap working paper series publishes papers expanding the frontiers of knowledge in microdata methods and practice. Martin Weidner is the editor of the working paper series.
This paper provides new estimates of the medium and long-term impacts of Head Start on the… Continue reading.
“Only entropy comes easily” – Anton Chekhov Various methods have been used to overcome the point… Continue reading.
In the tradition of Afriat (1967), Diewert (1973) and Varian (1982), we provide a revealed preference… Continue reading.
In this paper we introduce various set inference problems as they appear in finance and propose… Continue reading.
We develop inference procedures for policy analysis based on regression methods. We consider policy interventions that… Continue reading.
The method of sieves has been widely used in estimating semiparametric and nonparametric models. In this… Continue reading.
The merits of alternative income tax policies depend on the population distribution of preferences for income… Continue reading.
We extend the Berry, Levinsohn and Pakes (BLP, 1995) random coefficients discrete-choice demand model, which underlies… Continue reading.
In structural economic models, individuals are usually characterized as solving a decision problem that is governed… Continue reading.
We propose robust methods for inference on the effect of a treatment variable on a scalar… Continue reading.
We analyze fast procedures for conducting Monte Carlo experiments involving bootstrap estimators, providing formal results establishing… Continue reading.
It is often argued that engaging in indoor residual spraying (IRS) in areas with high coverage… Continue reading.
The goal of this paper is to develop formal tests to evaluate the relative in-sample performance… Continue reading.
Standard approaches to constructing nonparametric confidence bands for functions are frustrated by the impact of bias,… Continue reading.
This paper is concerned with inference about an unidentified linear functional, L(g), where the function g… Continue reading.
This paper proposes a class of origin-smooth approximators of indicators underlying the sum-of-negative-part statistic for testing… Continue reading.
We consider estimation of a linear or nonparametric additive model in which a few coefficients or… Continue reading.
This paper examines three distinct hypothesis testing problems that arise in the context of identification of… Continue reading.
This paper develops asymptotic theory for estimated parameters in differentiated product demand systems with a fixed… Continue reading.
