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… Expand

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.Expand
Why and When Should Quantile Regression Be Used?
Quantile regression is a way to disclose predictive relationships between a response variable and some regressors or explanatory variables when the interest is to find a causal link beyond theExpand
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 acrossExpand

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 ofExpand
Testing Porter and pollution haven hypothesis via economic variables and CO2 emissions: a cross-country review with panel quantile regression method
The results of the research show that the impact of energy consumption, economic growth, and total population on all quantiles of carbon dioxide emission is positive and significant, which supports Porter's hypothesis. Expand
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. Expand
The effect of democracy on CO2 emissions in emerging countries: Does the level of income matter?
Using quantile regression technique, this paper explores the interaction effects of democracy and income on CO2 emissions in 19 emerging countries over the period 1997–2010. The results indicate aExpand
Analysis of Difference in Household Debt across Regions of Thailand
This study analyzed the determinants of household debt in Thailand at both the regional and the national levels using the panel data of 76 provinces over the years 2009–2017. The Panel QuantileExpand
The analysis of ‘Financial Resource Curse’ hypothesis for developed countries: Evidence from asymmetric effects with quantile regression
Abstract A vast body of literature either proxies natural resource abundance with total rents or focuses on the natural resource curse hypothesis. Furthermore, most empirical studies in theExpand


Unconditional Quantile Regressions
We propose a new regression method to estimate the impact of explanatory variables on quantiles of the unconditional (marginal) distribution of an outcome variable. The proposed method consists ofExpand
A quantile regression approach for estimating panel data models using instrumental variables
We introduce a quantile regression approach to panel data models with endogenous variables and individual effects correlated with the independent variables. We find newly developed quantileExpand
Quantile regression for longitudinal data
The penalized least squares interpretation of the classical random effects estimator suggests a possible way forward for quantile regression models with a large number of "fixed effects". TheExpand
Quantile Regression: Fundamentals of Quantile Regression
In this chapter, we seek to provide a basic conceptual guide to quantile regression, illustrating the ideas with a number of examples and stressing various aspects of the interpretation of quantileExpand
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 comparesExpand
Instrumental variable quantile regression: A robust inference approach
Abstract In this paper, we develop robust inference procedures for an instrumental variables model defined by Y = D ′ α ( U ) where D ′ α ( U ) is strictly increasing in U and U is a uniform variableExpand
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 suchExpand
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 commonExpand
A Farewell to Critical Junctures: Sorting Out Long-Run Causality of Income and Democracy
We consider the empirical relevance of two opposing hypotheses on the causality between income and democracy: The Democratic Transition hypothesis claims that rising incomes cause a transition toExpand
▪ 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 theExpand
