Econometric methods for implementing decision functions

Abstract:

This thesis develops econometric methods for implementing data-based decisions. Decisions are viewed as functions of parameters which are estimated from the data. Standard methods focus on providing precise estimates of parameters ignoring intention to use them in decisions. My thesis focuses on designing methods to minimize the expected error in decision functions. The first chapter develops model averaging estimators in multiple regressions that minimize the mean squared error (MSE) of a...
