Re: st: U - Statistics Kernel of order 3

I can't comment on -kernreg2-. However, the -somersd- package only uses U-statistics or V-statistics with kernels of order 2 (if the -funtype(bclust)- or -funtype(vonmises)- options are used), or U-statistics or V-statistics with kernels of order 1, ie sample means (if the option -funtype(wcluster)- is used). See Newson (2006) for details of methods and formulas.

I hope this helps.

Best wishes

Dear statalist,

I am trying to implement U-statistics with kernel of order 3 in stata for some robust check. There are three different commands that uses the kernel: somersd,and KERNREG2. however, I am not sure what kernel order both packages are using. Please rewcommend, if there is any other command that implements U-Statistic with kerenl order of 3.
