  1. 16. Explaining Earnings and Income Inequality in Chile

    University dissertation from Göteborg : Göteborg University

    Author : Alexis Palma; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2008]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Income Inequality; Inequality Decomposition; Chile; Labor Market; Informal Sector; Bootstrap; Quintile Regressions;

    Abstract : The focal point of all papers in this thesis is income inequality in Chile. In some of them household income is analyzed, in others monthly earnings or the wage rate are used. In the first and fourth paper a long-run analysis is done, while in the second and third I concentrate my attention only on the 1990s. READ MORE

  4. 19. Resampling in network modeling of high-dimensional genomic data

    University dissertation from Department of Economics, Lund Universtiy

    Author : Jonatan Kallus; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2017]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; high-dimensional data; sparsity; model selection; bootstrap; genomics; graphical modeling;

    Abstract : Network modeling is an effective approach for the interpretation of high-dimensional data sets for which a sparse dependence structure can be assumed. Genomic data is a challenging and important example. In genomics, network modeling aids the discovery of biological mechanistic relationships and therapeutic targets. READ MORE

  5. 20. Nonlinear Quantile Regression for Longitudinal Data

    University dissertation from Department of Economics, Lund Universtiy

    Author : Andreas Karlsson; [2005]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; bootstrap; dependent errors; median regression; Monte Carlo simulation; panel data; repeated measures; SOCIAL SCIENCES Statistics; computer and systems science Statistics; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP Statistik; data- och systemvetenskap Statistik; SOCIAL SCIENCES Statistics; computer and systems science Statistics Biostatistics; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP Statistik; data- och systemvetenskap Statistik Biostatistik;

    Abstract : The overall objective of the two papers in this thesis is to examine the properties of the weighted nonlinear quantile regression estimator for the analysis of longitudinal data. To this end, the question of which weights to be used, the bias of the estimator and the possibility to calculate confidence intervals has to be examined. READ MORE
