报告摘要:

This article is concerned with parameter estimation, change points detection and statistical inference for a Multi-Kink Quantile Regression (MKQR) model. It assumes different regression forms in different regions of the domain of the threshold covariate but is still continuous at multiple kink thresholds. We propose an iterative segmented quantile regression algorithm for estimating both the regression coefficients and the locations of kink points. It is much more computationally efficient than the grid search algorithm and not sensitive to the initial values. We theoretically demonstrate that the selection consistency of the number of kink points and the asymptotic normality of both regression coefficients and kink locations parameters. The MKQR model is robust to outliers and heavy-tailed errors in the response and more flexible for modelling data with heterogeneous conditional distributions especially when upper or lower quantiles of the response are of interest. Monte Carlo simulations and two real data applications illustrate the excellent performances of the proposed method.
