Since the seminal work of Koenker and Gilbert (1978), quantile regression (QR) has been a pivotal statistical technique; it offers an easy-to-implement method to estimate conditional quantiles, and by estimating several different conditional quantiles, one is able to make inference on the effects of the regressors on the entire conditional distribution. The properties of the QR method are well established for cross-sectional models; see the landmark monograph by Koenker (2005) for references and discussion.
