Frank Kleibergen's research focuses on the validity of statistical inference in economic models. Until recently it was commonly thought that usage of a large dataset automatically implies that the empirical validation of an economic model is conducted in a statistical sound manner. The large sample validity of statistical inference is, however, often a misconception for economic models that contain endogenous variables. Endogeneity is a commonality of many economic variables. Kleibergen is involved in the development of statistical procedures that remain trustworthy in such instances.
