Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Nonparametric and Semiparametric Methods in Econometrics and Statistics gives a fairly thorough picture of recent advances in nonparametric and semiparametric analysis. It provides insight on recently solved problems in this area and also points towards some of the yet-unresolved issues." Journal of the American Statistical Association
