Abstract

We consider a B-spline regression approach towards efficient nonparametric modelling of a random effects (error component) model. Theoretical underpinnings are provided, finite-sample performance is evaluated via Monte Carlo simulation, and an application that examines the contribution of different types of public infrastructure on private production is investigated using panel data comprising the 48 contiguous states in the US over the period 1970-1986.
