Special Issue "Quantile Methods"
A special issue of Econometrics (ISSN 2225-1146).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 April 2016).
Interests: panel data; quantile regression; testing; econometric theory; development economics
Quantile regression is a useful tool to represent individual heterogeneity and to summarize statistical relationships among stochastic variables. This heterogeneity is analyzed using the conditional quantiles of a response variable of interest. The last decades have seen numerous developments in economics in which quantile methods played a key role, combined with important theoretical advances.
This Special Issue is open for submissions until 31 October 2015. All submitted articles will undergo rigorous peer review, and in the event of acceptance, are ensured rapid publication and high visibility.
This Special Issue within the open access journal Econometrics will cover a broad range of topics in relation to Quantile Methods, including, but not limited to:
- treatment effects;
- inequality and wage premia;
- panel data quantile regression models;
- financial econometrics applications of quantile regression (value-at-risk, asymmetry, threshold models);
- computation issues of quantile regression;
- endogeneity and measurement errors;
- multivariate quantiles;
- nonparametric quantile estimation;
- quasi-maximum likelihood methods to estimate quantiles.
