Monotonicity-constrained nonparametric estimation and inference for first-price auctions
Abstract In the independent private values framework for first-price auctions, we propose a new nonparametric estimator of the probability density of latent valuations that imposes the monotonicity
Simple nonparametric inference for first-price auctions via bid spacings
In a classic model of the first-price auction, we propose a nonparametric estimator of the quantile function of bidders’ valuations, based on weighted bid spacings. We derive the Bahadur-Kiefer
Simple Inference in First-Price Auctions
In this paper, we propose a new estimator for the distribution of valuations in first-price auctions with independent private valuations which applies in parametric and nonparametric settings. A
Estimation of Auction Models with Shape Restrictions
We introduce several new estimation methods that leverage shape constraints in auction models to estimate various objects of interest, including the distribution of a bidder's valuations, the
Quantile regression methods for first-price auctions
Inference on Individual Treatment Effects in Nonseparable Triangular Models
In nonseparable triangular models with a binary endogenous treatment and a binary instrumental variable, Vuong and Xu (2017) show that the individual treatment effects (ITEs) are identifiable. Feng,
Kernel Estimation for Panel Data with Heterogeneous Dynamics
This paper proposes nonparametric kernel-smoothing estimation for panel data to examine the degree of heterogeneity across cross-sectional units. We first estimate the sample mean, autocovariances,


Quantile-Based Nonparametric Inference for First-Price Auctions
We propose a quantile-based nonparametric approach to inference on the probability density function (PDF) of the private values in first-price sealed-bid auctions with independent private values. Our
Optimal Nonparametric Estimation of First-price Auctions
This paper proposes a general approach and a computationally convenient estimation procedure for the structural analysis of auctioni data. Considering first-price sealed-bid auction models within the
Nonparametric estimation of first-price auctions with risk-averse bidders
Integrated-Quantile-Based Estimation for First-Price Auction Models
This article considers nonparametric estimation of first-price auction models under the monotonicity restriction on the bidding strategy. Based on an integrated-quantile representation of the
Structural Estimation of the Affliated Private Value Auction Model
We consider the structural estimation of the affiliated private value (APV) model in first-price sealed-bid auctions. The model allows for bidders' individual efficiencies and opportunity costs,
Semiparametric Estimation of the Optimal Reserve Price in First-Price Auctions
The optimal reserve price in the independent private value paradigm is generally expressed as a functional of the latent distribution of private signals, which is by nature unobserved. This feature
Supplement to 'Quantile-Based Nonparametric Inference for First-Price Auctions'
This paper contains supplemental materials for Marmer and Shneyerov (2010). We discuss here how the approach developed in the aforementioned paper can be applied to conducting inference on the
