Inference in Semiparametric Binary Response Models with Interval Data
AbstractThis paper studies the semiparametric binary response model with interval data investigated by Manski and Tamer (2002, MT). In this partially identified model, we propose a new estimator based on MT's modified maximum score (MMS) method by introducing density weights to the objective function, which allows us to develop asymptotic properties of the proposed set estimator for inference. We show that the density-weighted MMS estimator converges to the identified set at a nearly cube-root-n rate. Further, we propose an asymptotically valid inference procedure for the identified region based on subsampling. Monte Carlo experiments provide supports to our inference procedure.
