KWSTAT: Stata module to compute kernel weighted sample statistics

Statistical Software Components from Boston College Department of Economics

Abstract: kwstat computes sample statistics of a variable y in function of another variable x. The approach is inspired by the kernel regression (Nadaraya-Watson estimator) which computes the conditional mean of y in function of x. kwstat does the same but not only for the mean but also for the standard deviation, deciles, range, etc. Note that this procedure is an ad-hoc method and should be used in an exploratory way to visualize the data. It is not rooted in a well-defined statistical concept.
