Relative efficiencies of kernel and local likelihood density estimators

Hall, Peter; Tao, T


Local likelihood methods enjoy advantageous properties, such as good performance in the presence of edge effects, that are rarely found in other approaches to nonparametric density estimation. However, as we argue in this paper, standard kernel methods can have distinct advantages when edge effects are not present. We show that, whereas the integrated variances of the two methods are virtually identical, the integrated squared bias of a conventional kernel estimator is less than that of a local...[Show more]
