Software

I’ve co-authored and published two new Stata commands and their associated papers. They address survey nonresponse and sample selection in quantile regressions.

kmr.ado (code paper)

This command implements Korinek, Mistiaen and Ravallion (2007). This command allows the user to estimate a micro compliance function using groups’ nonresponse rates, which can be used to correct survey weights for unit nonresponse. To install it within Stata type “net install st0634.pkg”.

qregsel.ado (code paper)

This command implements a copula-based sample selection correction for quantile regression recently proposed by Arellano and Bonhomme (2017). To install it within Stata type “ssc install qregsel”.
