Scott's (1979, 1985, 1992) method of average-shifted histograms has been used with success in the hazard model with heterogeneities by Huh and Sickles (1994). Other smoothing techniques for the simulated frequency, maximum simulated likelihood, and simulated method of moments estimators are discussed in McFadden (1989), Stem (1992), McFadden and Ruud (1994), Geweke et al. (1994), and Hajivassiliou et al. (1996). 3. 1. Design ofexperiments and data generation We consider the Weibull proportional hazard model h(~Ix;,a;) = exp(yln~)exp(x;~+a;) in which observed data are generated as realizations of the stochastic process: 11; = ty.

Monte Carlo approaches to probability calculations are well known in the area of computer simulation and have received recent interest in econometrics (Gourieroux and Monfort, 1992; McFadden, 1989; Pakes and Pollard, 1989). As computing technology advances to handle bigger inputs with shorter processing time, computer intensive statistical methods have been introduced and developed to solve more complicated problems in stochastic process modeling. Simulation methods (Lerman and Manski, 1981; Diggle and Gratton, 1984) have many potential advantages and are seeing increasing use in econometric applications (see, for example, the special issues of the Journal 0/ Applied Econometrics, 1994, and the Review 0/ Economics and Statistics, 1994).
