Threshold models in micro-econometrics with applications to empirical models of health (ARC Discovery Project administered by Curtin University of Technology) (2014–2017)

Abstract:
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. We will generalise our techniques to allow for various forms of the threshold variable(s), including categorical and continuous, endogenous and exogenous, and those measured with error.
