THRESHOLD MODELS IN MICRO-ECONOMETRICS WITH APPLICATIONS TO EMPIRICAL MODELS OF HEALTH
Grant number: DP140100743 | Funding period: 2016 - 2019
The aim of this project is to develop and apply new statistical approaches to endogenously identify non-linear relationships between explanatory variable(s) and the response variable in non-linear econometric models and to illustrate these with applications important to empirical health economics. Literature proliferates in linear models with non-linear effects, but in health economics non-linear models dominate. This project will generalise these techniques to allow for various forms of the threshold variable(s), including categorical and continuous, endogenous and exogenous, and those measured with error.
