Center for Policy Research [Maxwell School, Syracuse University] Working Paper: “Adaptive Elastic Net GMM Estimation with Many Invalid Moment Conditions: Simultaneous Model and Moment Selection,” by Mehmet Caner, Xu Han, and Yoonseok Lee (Working Paper No. 177, January 2015, .pdf format, 40p.).

Abstract:

This paper develops the adaptive elastic net GMM estimator in large dimensional models with many possibly invalid moment conditions, where both the number of structural parameters and the number of moment conditions may increase with the sample size. The basic idea is to conduct the standard GMM estimation combined with two penalty terms: the quadratic regularization and the adaptively weighted lasso shrinkage. The new estimation procedure consistently selects both the nonzero structural parameters and the valid moment conditions. At the same time, it uses information only from the valid moment conditions to estimate the selected structural parameters and thus achieves the standard GMM efficiency bound as if we know the valid moment conditions ex ante. It is shown that the quadratic regularization is important to obtain the efficient estimator. We also study the tuning parameter choice, with which we show that selection consistency still holds without assuming Gaussianity. We apply the new estimation procedure to dynamic panel data models, where both the time and cross section dimensions are large. The new estimator is robust to possible serial correlations in the regression error terms.

US Department of Commerce, Bureau of Economic Analysis Working Paper: “Estimating Regression-Based Medical Care Expenditure Indexes for Medicare Advantage Enrollees,” by Anne E. Hall (WP2015-1, November 2014, .pdf format, 33p.).

Abstract:

I construct a disease-based medical expenditure index for Medicare Advantage (private plan) enrollees using data from the Medicare Current Beneficiary Survey from 2001-2009. I create the indexes by modeling total health-care expenditure as a function of each respondent’s diagnoses. Total medical inflation for this population is found to be 5.7 percent annually. By comparison, medical inflation in the Medicare fee-for-service (FFS) population is 4.5 percent annually. The difference is partly due to differential reporting of drug and nondrug spending in the MCBS for FFS beneficiaries; once this is
corrected for, inflation among FFS beneficiaries is 5.0 percent. The remaining difference results from drug spending increasingly more rapidly among Medicare Advantage enrollees. I show that their spending increases more because they benefited more on average from the introduction of Part D than FFS beneficiaries.
