i have the following question that i don't get my head around.
suppose x1 and x2 are jointly normally distributed. i am interested in
the conditional distribution of x1|x2>c where c is a constant. i know
- E(x1|x2>c) and Var(x1|x2>c), which are functions of the inverse
Mills Ratio of the normal distribution. this looks like the problem is
solved, but my question is not to find out the conditional expectation
or variance but whether the pdf of x1|x2>c is normal?
- i also know E(x1|x1>c) and Var(x1|x1>c) and that the pdf of the
"cut-off normal" x1|x1>c is clearly not normal.
- finally i know the conditional distribution x1|x2 is normal and that
x1|x2>-infinity is normal as it is the marginal distribution of x1
do you have any idea or reference where to look this up?
