This collection brings together important contributions by leading econometricians on (i) parametric approaches to qualitative and sample selection models, (ii) nonparametric and semi-parametric approaches to qualitative and sample selection models, and (iii) nonlinear estimation of cross-sectional and time series models. The advances achieved here can have important bearing on the choice of methods and analytical techniques in applied research.
