In this paper we survey some recent developments of nonparametric econometrics in the following areas: (i) Nonparametric estimation of regression models with mixed discrete and continuous data; (ii) Nonparametric models with nonstationary data; (iii) Nonparametric models with instrumental variables; (iv) Nonparametric estimation of conditional quantile functions. In each of the above areas we also point out some open research problems.
