  1. 1. Nonparametric tests for comparing two treatments by using ordinal data

    University dissertation from Örebro : Örebro universitetsbibliotek

    Author : Helen Wahlström; Örebro universitet.; [2004]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Statistik; change; clinical trial; Monte Carlo; ordered categorical data; paired data; permutation test; Pitman efficiency; power; stratification; ties; visual analogue scale; Wilcoxon-Mann-Whitney statistic; statistik; SOCIAL SCIENCES Statistics; computer and systems science Statistics; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP Statistik; data- och systemvetenskap Statistik; Statistik; Statistics;

    Abstract : This thesis concerns four nonparametric tests for comparing two treatments in a randomized controlled clinical trial when the main response variable generates discrete or continuous ordinal data and measurements are made at baseline and follow-up.In the Wilcoxon-Mann-Whitney test (WMW) the baseline values are not taken into account at all, but in the other three tests both baseline and follow-up values are used.

  2. 2. Feasible computation of generalized linear mixed models with application to credit risk modelling

    University dissertation from Örebro : Örebro universitet

    Author : Moudud Alam; Högskolan Dalarna.; Örebro universitet.; [2010]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Komplexa system - mikrodataanalys; Credit risk; cluster correlation; GLMM; large data; two-step pseudo likelihood estimation; defaults contagion; predictive likelihood.; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES Statistics; computer and systems science Statistics; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP Statistik; data- och systemvetenskap Statistik; Statistik; Statistics; predictive likelihood;

    Abstract : This thesis deals with developing and testing feasible computational procedures to facilitate the estimation of and carry out the prediction with the generalized linear mixed model (GLMM) with a scope of applying them to large data sets. The work of this thesis is motivated from an issue arising incredit risk modelling. READ MORE

  3. 3. Multiple Time Scales and Longitudinal Measurements in Event History Analysis

    University dissertation from Umeå : Statistik

    Author : Danardono; Umeå universitet.; [2005]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Statistics; Cox regression; multiple events; proportiona hazards; random effects; survival analysis; time-dependent covariates; time origin; Statistik; SOCIAL SCIENCES Statistics; computer and systems science Statistics; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP Statistik; data- och systemvetenskap Statistik; Statistics; statistik;

    Abstract : A general time-to-event data analysis known as event history analysis is considered. The focus is on the analysis of time-to-event data using Cox's regression model when the time to the event may be measured from different origins giving several observable time scales and when longitudinal measurements are involved.

  4. 4. Contributions to the Theory of Measures of Association for Ordinal Variables

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Joakim Ekström; Uppsala universitet.; [2009]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; SOCIAL SCIENCES Statistics; computer and systems science Statistics; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP Statistik; data- och systemvetenskap Statistik; Statistics; statistik;

    Abstract : In this thesis, we consider measures of association for ordinal variables from a theoretical perspective. In particular, we study the phi-coefficient, the tetrachoric correlation coefficient and the polychoric correlation coefficient. READ MORE

  5. 5. Common features in vector nonlinear time series models

    University dissertation from Örebro : Örebro universitet

    Author : Dao Li; Högskolan Dalarna.; Örebro universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Komplexa system - mikrodataanalys; Nonlinearity; Time series; Econometrics; Smooth transition; Common features; Cointegration; Forecasting; Residual-based; PPP.; Statistik; Statistics; nonliearity; time series; econometrics; smooth transition; common features; cointegration; forecasting; residual-based; ppp;

    Abstract : This thesis consists of four manuscripts in the area of nonlinear time series econometrics on topics of testing, modeling and forecasting nonlinear common features. The aim of this thesis is to develop new econometric contributions for hypothesis testing and forecasting in thesearea.Both stationary and nonstationary time series are concerned. READ MORE
