Simulation estimation of dynamic discrete choice panel models with accelerated importance samplers
With long time series for dynamic discrete choice panel models, the Geweke--Hajivassiliou--Keane sampler has been observed to have large biases and root-mean-square errors. The Richard--Zhang accelerated importance sampler is extended for the simulation estimation of such models. It is demonstrated to be adequate and can improve upon the Geweke--Hajivassiliou--Keane sampler for lengthy time-series panels by Monte Carlo means. Empirical applications of the proposed method on firm's dividend decisions illustrate the practical value of the accelerated importance sampler. Copyright Royal Economic Socciety 2004
