Quantile Regression for Time-Series-Cross-Section Data

  title={Quantile Regression for Time-Series-Cross-Section Data},
  author={Marcus Alexander and Matthew Harding and Carlos Lamarche},
This paper introduces quantile regression methods for the analysis of time-series-cross-section data. Quantile regression offers a robust, and therefore efficient alternative to least squares estimation. We show that quantile regression can be used in the presence of endogenous covariates, and can also account for unobserved individual effects. Moreover, the estimation of these models is no more demanding today than that of a least squares model. We use quantile regression methods to re…

Quantile regression in varying-coefficient models: non-crossing quantile curves and heteroscedasticity
Quantile regression is an important tool for describing the characteristics of conditional distributions. Population conditional quantile functions cannot cross for different quantile orders.
The Asymmetric Effects of Regional House Prices in the UK: New Evidence from Panel Quantile Regression Framework
This study unfurls the non-linear behaviour of regional house prices in the United Kingdom by employing quarterly observations spanning the period 1992Q1–2017Q4. Our enquiry aims at examining UK
A panel data quantile regression analysis of the impact of corruption on tourism
Employing a data set of 62 nations over the period of 1998–2011, we adopt the quantile regression model to provide a broad description of the relationship between tourism demand and corruption across
Capital Mobility in the Enlarged Europe: A New Look at the Feldstein-Horioka Puzzle using a Quantile Regression Approach
This study assesses the degree of financial integration in the Enlarged Europe (EU-24), as well as in two sub-groups [Old Member States (EU-14) and New Member States (NMS-10)] separately by using the
Exploring the relationship between corruption, income inequality and informal sector in developing countries: a panel quantile approach
PurposeThis paper aims to explore the impact of corruption (CP) on income inequality (IN) by considering the size of informal sector (IFS) at different levels of
Heterogeneous effects of remittances and institutional quality in reducing environmental deficit in the presence of EKC hypothesis: A global study with the application of panel quantile regression
The results support the validity of an inverted U-shaped environmental Kuznets curve (EKC) hypothesis and financial development, energy consumption, and trade openness significantly deteriorate the environmental quality in the long run, while foreign direct investment improves environmental sustainability.
The heterogeneous effects of urbanization and income inequality on CO2 emissions in BRICS economies: evidence from panel quantile regression
The empirical results indicate that urbanization has a significant and negative impact on carbon emissions, except in the 80th, 90th, and 95th quantiles, and there is an inverted U-shaped environmental Kuznets curve (EKC) between the GDP per capita and carbon emissions.

Evaluating Technological Innovation Impact. An Empirical Analysis of The Offshore Wind Sector.
This study analyses the drivers that impact innovation on offshore wind energy for a select group of countries, applying the quantile and GMM approaches for a period between 2010-2019. The OLS


Random Coefficient Models for Time-Series—Cross-Section Data: Monte Carlo Experiments
This article considers random coefficient models (RCMs) for time-series—cross-section data. These models allow for unit to unit variation in the model parameters. The heart of the article compares

Income and Democracy?
Existing studies establish a strong cross-country correlation between income and democracy but do not control for factors that simultaneously affect both variables. We show that controlling for such
International Business Cycles: World, Region, and Country-Specific Factors
The paper investigates the common dynamic properties of business-cycle fluctuations across countries, regions, and the world. We employ a Bayesian dynamic latent factor model to estimate common
▪ Abstract In this essay, I review recent research on the effects of economic development on democracy. On the theoretical side, for the first time there has been a systematic attempt to bring the
Determinants of Democracy
A panel study of over 100 countries from 1960 to 1995 finds that improvements in the standard of living predict increase in democracy, as measured by a subjective indicator of electoral rights. The
The Colonial Origins of Comparative Development: An Empirical Investigation
We exploit differences in the mortality rates faced by European colonialists to estimate the effect of institutions on economic performance. Our argument is that Europeans adopted very different
