[About the Speaker]
Professor Yuya Sasaki is an associate professor of economics at Vanderbilt University since 2017. The field of specialization is econometrics. Professor Sasaki received a Ph.D. at Brown University in 2012, and served as an assistant professor of economics at Johns Hopkins University from 2012 to 2017. He is currently an associate editor of Journal of Econometric Methods. He has contributed to a number of research areas including panel data, quantile regressions, regression discontinuity and kink designs, measurement errors, deconvolution, and robust inference.
This lecture presents statistical and econometric theories of “deconvolution” and their applications in economics. The lecture starts with an overview of the history of the literature. The emphasis is placed on the practice of how to compute estimates, how to form confidence bands, and how to choose bandwidths and regularization parameters. The lecture also presents a guideline on which methods may be used under various scenarios of empirical research, including the case where data with validation sample is available and the case where data with repeated observations is available. A selected set of theories and methods is illustrated with real data analysis.
