Abstract

mkern extimates a multivariate nonparametric local kernel regression, by a "radial" local mean or local linear approach using various Kernel functions as weighting schemes (at user's choice). Using the companion command min_cv_mkern, one can also compute the "optimal bandwidth", i.e. the bandwidth minimizing the integrated mean square error (IMSE), via a (computational) cross-validation (CV) approach. Users can also provide their own choice of the bandwidth, thus producing estimation for both oversmoothing and undersmoothing cases. Finally, as an option, mkern offers a graphical plot of the raw data against predicted values to assess the degree of smoothness of the provided estimation.
