LOCAL RANK ESTIMATION OF TRANSFORMATION MODELS WITH FUNCTIONAL COEFFICIENTS

Published online by Cambridge University Press:  22 March 2010

Abstract

This paper considers a nonparametric functional coefficient model with an unknown link function. The model gives flexibility to the standard interaction-variable model by allowing an arbitrary functional form of heterogeneous marginal effects. A local rank estimation procedure is proposed for the functional coefficients along with its asymptotic property.
