Dear Austin, Sorry to be imprecise and thanks for allowing me to revise-and-resubmit. My question is about inference on the estimated slope, rather than the estimated conditional mean. In terms of your example, are the standard errors given by _se[time] likely to be consistent? If not, is there a way to obtain the analytical standard errors for the slope term directly from lpoly? Or would a bootstrapping approach be preferable? (If I am reading the help file for R's np package correctly, npreg and related functions compute analytical standard errors for the gradient but also provide bootstrap estimates -- see citation below.) Thanks, BL Hayfield and Racine, "The np package," v 0.40-13, 2012; pages 9-11. http://cran.r-project.org/web/packages/np/vignettes/np.pdf Li and Racine, Nonparametric Econometrics, 2007, provide a formula for the asymptotic variance of the local polynomial estimator (Theorem 2.10, pg. 90), although it is not obvious to me whether this is for data assumed to be i.i.d. (homoskedastic) or i.n.i.d. (heteroskedastic).
