ΠΕΡΙΛΗΨΗ

The decisions to reduce, leave unchanged, or increase a choice variable (such as policy interest rates, prices, etc) are often characterized by abundant status quo outcomes that can be generated by different processes. The decreases and increases may also be driven by distinct decision-making paths. Neither standard nor zero-inflated models for ordinal responses adequately address these issues. In this talk I will review the recent developments in modeling discrete-valued time series with abundant and heterogeneous zeros, and present a new flexible mixture model with endogenously switching regimes. Three latent regimes, which are interpreted in the interest rate setting context as loose, neutral and tight policy stances, create separate processes for rate hikes and cuts and overlap at a status quo outcome, generating three different types of zeros. The new model exhibits acceptable small-sample performances in Monte Carlo experiments, whereas traditional models deliver biased estimates. In the empirical application, the new model is not only highly favored by the statistical tests but also produces economically more meaningful inference with respect to existing models.

ABSTRACT

The decisions to reduce, leave unchanged, or increase a choice variable (such as policy interest rates, prices, etc) are often characterized by abundant status quo outcomes that can be generated by different processes. The decreases and increases may also be driven by distinct decision-making paths. Neither standard nor zero-inflated models for ordinal responses adequately address these issues. In this talk I will review the recent developments in modeling discrete-valued time series with abundant and heterogeneous zeros, and present a new flexible mixture model with endogenously switching regimes. Three latent regimes, which are interpreted in the interest rate setting context as loose, neutral and tight policy stances, create separate processes for rate hikes and cuts and overlap at a status quo outcome, generating three different types of zeros. The new model exhibits acceptable small-sample performances in Monte Carlo experiments, whereas traditional models deliver biased estimates. In the empirical application, the new model is not only highly favored by the statistical tests but also produces economically more meaningful inference with respect to existing models.
