A semi-parametric econometric model is used to study the relationship between malaria cases and climatic factors in 25 African countries. Results show that a marginal change in temperature and precipitation levels would lead to a significant change in the number of malaria cases for most countries by the end of the century. Consistent with the existing(More)
We propose an information theoretic approach to approximating asymptotic distributions of statistics using the maximum entropy densities. Conventional maximum entropy densities are typically defined on a bounded support. For distributions defined on unbounded supports, we propose to use an asymptotically negligible dampening function for the maximum entropy(More)
