Robust and efficient analysis of conditionally-specified models via disparities

Disparity based inference proceeds by minimizing a measure of disparity between a parametric family of density functions and a kernel density estimate based on observed i.i.d. data. For a class of disparity measures, of which Hellinger distance is one of the best known, minimum disparity estimates of parameters have the surprising property of being both robust to outliers and also statistically efficient.
