内容摘要

报告:Bayesian variable selection in quantile regression

Bayesian econometrics has been adopted widely in current econometrics research. Recent years, Bayesian quantile regression has attracted much attention in the literature. Like standard regression models, there is typically uncertainty in which of the many candidate predictors should be included in a quantile regression model. In order to identify important predictors and to build accurate predictive models, Bayesian methods for variable selection and model averaging are very useful. However, such methods are currently not available for quantile regression. This paper develops Bayesian methods for variable selection in quantile regression, with a simple and efficient stochastic search variable selection (SSVS) algorithm proposed for posterior computation. This approach can be used for moderately high-dimensional variable selection and can accommodate uncertainty in basis function selection in non-linear and additive quantile regression models. The methods are illustrated using simulated data and an application to the Boston housing data.
