abs_stdresC: Absolute values of residuals of kernel regressions of x on y...

Description Usage Arguments Details Value Author(s) References See Also Examples

Description

1) standardize the data to force mean zero and variance unity, 2) kernel regress x on y and a matrix of control variables, with the option ‘residuals = TRUE’ and finally 3) compute the absolute values of residuals.

Usage

1
abs_stdresC(x, y, ctrl)

Arguments

x

vector of data on the dependent variable

y

data on the regressors which can be a matrix

ctrl

Data matrix on the control variable(s) beyond causal path issues

Details

The first argument is assumed to be the dependent variable. If abs_stdres(x,y) is used, you are regressing x on y (not the usual y on x). The regressors can be a matrix with two or more columns. The missing values are suitably ignored by the standardization.

Value

Absolute values of kernel regression residuals are returned after standardizing the data on both sides so that the magnitudes of residuals are comparable between regression of x on y on the one hand and regression of y on x on the other.
