Generalised empirical likelihood-based kernel density estimation
If additional information about the distribution of a random variable is available in the form of moment conditions, a weighted kernel density estimate reflecting the extra information can be constructed by replacing the uniform weights with the generalised empirical likelihood probabilities.� It is shown that the resultant density estimator provides an improved approximation to the moment constraints.� Moreover, a reduction in variance is achieved due to the systematic use of the extra moment information.
