Abstract: In this paper we propose a new nonparametric kernel-based estimator for a density function f which achieves bias reduction relative to the classical Rosenblatt–Parzen estimator. Contrary to some existing estimators that provide for bias reduction, our estimator has a full asymptotic characterisation including uniform consistency and asymptotic normality. In addition, we show that bias reduction can be achieved without the disadvantage of potential negativity of the estimated density – a deficiency that results from using higher order kernels. Our results are based on imposing global Lipschitz conditions on f and defining a novel corresponding kernel. A Monte Carlo study is provided to illustrate the estimator's finite sample performance.
