A new method for bias reduction in nonparametric density estimation is proposed. The method is a simple, two-stage multiplicative bias correction. Its theoretical properties are investigated, and simulations indicate its practical potential. The method is easy to compute and to analyse, and extends simply to multivariate and other estimation problems.
