Testing for monotonicity of a regression mean by calibrating for linear functions

Hall, Peter; Heckman, Nancy


A new approach to testing for monotonicity of a regression mean, not requiring computation of a curve estimator or a bandwidth, is suggested. It is based on the notion of "running gradients" over short intervals, although from some viewpoints it may be regarded as an analogue for monotonicity testing of the dip/excess mass approach for testing modality hypotheses about densities. Like the latter methods, the new technique does not suffer difficulties caused by almost-flat parts of the target...[Show more]
