A Class of Improved Parametrically Guided Nonparametric Regression Estimators
AbstractIn this article we define a class of estimators for a nonparametric regression model with the aim of reducing bias. The estimators in the class are obtained via a simple two-stage procedure. In the first stage, a potentially misspecified parametric model is estimated and in the second stage the parametric estimate is used to guide the derivation of a final semiparametric estimator. Mathematically, the proposed estimators can be thought as the minimization of a suitably defined Cressie-Read discrepancy that can be shown to produce conventional nonparametric estimators, such as the local polynomial estimator, as well as existing two-stage multiplicative estimators, such as that proposed by Glad (1998). We show that under fairly mild conditions the estimators in the proposed class are [image omitted] asymptotically normal and explore their finite sample (simulation) behavior.
