We employ Lasso shrinkage within the context of sufficient dimension reduction to obtain a shrinkage sliced inverse regression estimator, which provides easier interpretations and better prediction accuracy without assuming a parametric model. The shrinkage sliced inverse regression approach can be employed for both single-index and multiple-index models. Simulation studies suggest that the new estimator performs well when its tuning parameter is selected by either the Bayesian information criterion or the residual information criterion.
