If we take 2n observations, n along each axis, then f a and f b can be approximated with error O(1/n), so approximation error for f is also O(1/n), once again the same as if f were a nonparametric function of one variable. The following proposition should now be plausible: For partially linear, index, or additively separable models, the approximation error depends on the maximum dimension of the nonparametric components of the model. Smoothness can also reduce approximation error. Suppose f is twice differentiable on the unit interval with f and f bounded by L and we evaluate f at n equidistant values of x.

Consider approximation of f at xo ∈ [xi ,xi+1 ]. Using a Taylor expansion, we have f (xo ) = f (xi ) + f (xi )(xo − xi ) + 1/2 f (x ∗ )(xo − xi )2 x ∗ ∈ [xi , xo ]. 1) If we approximate f (xo ) using f (xi ) + f (xi )(xo − xi ), the error is O(xo − xi )2 = O(1/n 2 ). Of course we do not observe f (xi ). However, the bound on the second derivative implies that f (xi ) − [ f (xi+1 ) − f (xi )]/ [xi+1 − xi ] is O(1/n) and thus f (xo ) = f (xi ) + [ f (xi+1 ) − f (xi )] 1 (xo − xi ) + O 2 . 2) This local linear approximation involves nothing more than joining the observed points with straight lines.

These will constitute the neighborhood N (xo ). Define the span to be k/n. It is the fraction of total observations used in the local regression. Let (xo ) be the largest distance between xo and any other point in the neighborhood N (xo ). 2. Calculate the weighted least-squares estimator using the observations in the neighborhood and produce the fitted value fˆ (xo ). Repeat at the other values of x. 42 Semiparametric Regression for the Applied Econometrician Model: y = f (x) + ε, x is log total expenditure and y is the food share of expenditure.
