# Decoupling Shrinkage and Selection for the Bayesian Quantile Regression

@inproceedings{Kohns2021DecouplingSA, title={Decoupling Shrinkage and Selection for the Bayesian Quantile Regression}, author={David Kohns and T. Szendrei}, year={2021} }

This paper extends the idea of decoupling shrinkage and sparsity for continuous priors to Bayesian Quantile Regression (BQR). The procedure follows two steps: In the first step, we shrink the quantile regression posterior through state of the art continuous priors and in the second step, we sparsify the posterior through an efficient variant of the adaptive lasso, the signal adaptive variable selection (SAVS) algorithm. We propose a new variant of the SAVS which automates the choice of… Expand

Bayesian adaptive Lasso quantile regression

- Mathematics
- 2012

Recently, variable selection by penalized likelihood has attracted much research interest. In this paper, we propose adaptive Lasso quantile regression (BALQR) from a Bayesian perspective. The method… Expand

Conjugate priors and variable selection for Bayesian quantile regression

An extension of the Zellners prior which allows for a conditional conjugate prior and quantile dependent prior on Bayesian quantile regression is proposed and a novel prior based on percentage bend correlation for model selection is also used in Bayesian regression for the first time. Expand

Signal Adaptive Variable Selector for the Horseshoe Prior

- Mathematics

In this article, we propose a simple method to perform variable selection as a post model-fitting exercise using continuous shrinkage priors such as the popular horseshoe prior. The proposed Signal… Expand

Summary
The paper discusses the asymptotic validity of posterior inference of pseudo-Bayesian quantile regression methods with complete or censored data when an asymmetric Laplace likelihood is… Expand

Nowcasting Tail Risks to Economic Activity with Many Indicators

This paper focuses on tail risk nowcasts of economic activity, measured by GDP growth, with a potentially wide array of monthly and weekly information. We consider different models (Bayesian mixed… Expand

Spike and slab variable selection: Frequentist and Bayesian strategies

- Mathematics
- 2005

Variable selection in the linear regression model takes many apparent faces from both frequentist and Bayesian standpoints. In this paper we introduce a variable selection method referred to as a… Expand

The Bayesian Lasso

- Mathematics
- 2008

The Lasso estimate for linear regression parameters can be interpreted as a Bayesian posterior mode estimate when the regression parameters have independent Laplace (i.e., double-exponential) priors.… Expand

Inducing Sparsity and Shrinkage in Time-Varying Parameter Models

- Mathematics, Economics
- 2019

Abstract Time-varying parameter (TVP) models have the potential to be over-parameterized, particularly when the number of variables in the model is large. Global-local priors are increasingly used to… Expand

Shrink Globally, Act Locally: Sparse Bayesian Regularization and Prediction

- Mathematics

We study the classic problem of choosing a prior distribution for a location parameter β = (β1, . . . , βp) as p grows large. First, we study the standard “global-local shrinkage” approach, based on… Expand

Regression Shrinkage and Selection via the Lasso

SUMMARY We propose a new method for estimation in linear models. The 'lasso' minimizes the residual sum of squares subject to the sum of the absolute value of the coefficients being less than a… Expand
