Local linear additive quantile regression
MetadataShow full item record
We consider non-parametric additive quantile regression estimation by kernel-weighted local linear fitting. The estimator is based on localizing the characterization of quantile regression as the minimizer of the appropriate 'check function'. A backfitting algorithm and aheuristic rule for selecting the smoothing parameter are explored. We also study the estimation of average-derivative quantile regression under the additive model. The techniques are illustrated by a simulated example and a real data set.
