This package implements nonparametric instrumental variable (NPIV) estimation methods without and with a cross-validated choice of tuning parameters, respectively. Both commands "npiv" and "npivcv" are able to impose monotonicity of the estimated function. The use of such a shape restriction may significantly improve the performance of the NPIV estimator (Chetverikov and Wilhelm 2017). This is because the ill-posedness of the NPIV estimation problem leads to unconstrained estimators that suffer from particularly poor statistical properties such as very high variance. The constrained estimator that imposes the monotonicity, on the other hand, significantly reduces variance by removing oscillations of the estimator that is nonmonotone.
