Simulation-based Econometric Methods

Christian Gouriéroux and Alain Monfort


This book deals with a new generation of econometric methods leading to criterion functions without simple analytical expression. The difficulty often comes from the presence of integrals of large dimension in the probability density function or in the moments, and the idea is to circumvent this numerical difficulty by an approach based on simulation. The main methods considered are the methods of Simulated Moments, Simulated Maximum Likelihood, Simulated Pseudo‐Maximum Likelihood, Simulated Non‐Linear Least Squares, and Indirect Inference. These methods are applied to Limited Dependent Variab ... More

Keywords: Pseudo‐Maximum Likelihood, Simulated Indirect Inference, Simulated Non‐Linear Least Square
