A Smoothed Maximum Score Estimator for the Binary Response Model
This paper describes a semiparametric estimator for binary response models in which there may be arbitrary heteroskedasticity of unknown form. The estimator is obtained by maximizing a smoothed version of the objective function of C. Manski's maximum score estimator. The smoothing procedure is similar to that used in kernel nonparametric density estimation. The resulting estimator's rate of convergence in probability is the fastest possible under the assumptions that are made. The centered, normalized estimator is asymptotically normally distributed. Methods are given for consistently estimating the parameters of the limiting distribution and for selecting the bandwidth required by the smoothing procedure.
