Bootstrapping Density-Weighted Average Derivatives
AbstractEmploying the "small bandwidth" asymptotic framework of Cattaneo, Crump, and Jansson (2009), this paper studies the properties of a variety of bootstrap-based inference procedures associated with the kernel-based density-weighted averaged derivative estimator proposed by Powell, Stock, and Stoker (1989). In many cases validity of bootstrap-based inference procedures is found to depend crucially on whether the bandwidth sequence satisfies a particular (asymptotic linearity) condition. An exception to this rule occurs for inference procedures involving a studentized estimator employing a "robust" variance estimator derived from the "small bandwidth" asymptotic framework. The results of a small-scale Monte Carlo experiment are found to be consistent with the theory and indicate in particular that sensitivity with respect to the bandwidth choice can be ameliorated by using the "robust"variance estimatorClassification-JEL: C12, C14, C21, C24
