Book
)
2 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 155 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In 1974, the Societal Institute of the Mathematical Sciences (SIMS) initiated a series of fiveday Research Application Conferences (RAC's) at Alta, Utah, for the purpose of probing in depth societal fields in light of their receptivity to mathematical and statistical analysis. The first eleven conferences addressed ecosystems, epidemiology, energy, environmental health, time series and ecological processes, energy and health, energy conversion and fluid mechanics, environmental epidemiology: risk assessment, atomic bomb survival data: utilization and analysis, modem statistical methods in chronic disease epidemiology and scientific issues in quantitative cancer risk assess ment. These Proceedings are a result of the twelfth conference on Statistical Methodology for Study of the AIDS Epidemic which was held in 1991 at the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute, Berkeley, California. For five days, 45 speakers and observers contributed their expertise in the relevant biology and statistics. The presentations were timely and the discussion was both enlightening and at times spirited. Members of the Program Committee for the Conference were Klaus Dietz (University of Tiibingen, Germany), Vernon T. Farewell (University of Waterloo, Ontario), and Nicholas P. Jewell (University of California, Berke ley) (Chair). The Conference was supported by a grant to SIMS from the National Institute of Drug Abuse. D.L. Thomsen, Jr

Slicing regression : a linkfree regression method by
Naihua Duan(
Book
)
4 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 80 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Regression analysis is one of the most useful tools in statistical analysis. Usually, regression analysis requires specifying the link function for the model. The popular link functions used widely include the linear link function, the logistic link function, and the probit link function. However, in many applications, the functional form and the link function might not be known precisely. Therefore, the usual regression analysis based on a specific link function might not perform well. In this paper, the authors propose a new regression method, the slicing regression, which does not require specifying the link function in advance. The method is based on the inverse regression: the authors regress the predictor variables on the outcome variable, then relate the inverse regression result to the forward regression model that they are actually interested in. The slicing regression is shown to have desirable statistical properties, including consistency and asymptotic normality. The theory is illustrated with a simulation study

A bias bound for least squares linear regression by

)
3 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 74 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Regression analysis is one of the most useful tools in statistical analysis. Usually, regression analysis requires specifying the link function for the model. The popular link functions used widely include the linear link function, the logistic link function, and the probit link function. However, in many applications, the functional form and the link function might not be known precisely. Therefore, the usual regression analysis based on a specific link function might not perform well. In this paper, the authors focus on the least squares linear regression which assumes the linear link function. When the linear link function does not hold, the results based on the least squares regression might be biased. The authors derive bounds for the bias and apply the theory to a special case as an illustration

5 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 74 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In 1974, the Societal Institute of the Mathematical Sciences (SIMS) initiated.a series of fiveday Research Application Conferences (RAC's) at Alta, Utah, for the purpose of probing in depth societal fields in light of their receptivity to mathematical and statistical analysis. The first 10 conferences addressed ecosys tems, epidemiology, energy, environmental health, time series and ecological processes, energy and health, energy conversion and fluid mechanics, environ mental epidemiology: risk assessment, atomic bomb survivor data: utilization and analysis, and modem statistical methods in chronic disease epidemiology. These Proceedings are a result of the eleventh conference of Scientific Issues in Quantitative Cancer Risk Assessment, which was held in 1989 at Snowbird, Utah. For five days, 45 speakers and observers contributed their expertise in the relevant biology and statistics. The presentations were timely and the discussion was both enlightening and at times spirited. This volume hopefully presents a record that will be useful both now and in the future. Suresh H. Moolgavkar of the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center (Seattle, WA) and the University of Washington (Seattle) chaired the Conference. The Conference was supported by the following organizations: The Dow Chemical Company Haskell Laboratory, E.1. duPont Health and Welfare Canada International Life Sciences Institute Monsanto Company National Cancer Institute Procter & Gamble Shell Oil Company U. S. Department of Energy U.S. Environmental Protection Agency U.S. Food and Drug Administration SIMS is grateful to the above organizations for their support of this Conference. D.L. Thomsen, Jr

The adjoint projection pursuit regression by
Naihua Duan(

)
3 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Regression analysis is one of the most useful tools in statistical analysis. Usually, regression analysis requires specifying the link function for the model. The popular link functions used widely include the linear link function, the logistic link function, and the probit link function. However, in many applications, the functional form and the link function might not be known precisely. Therefore, the usual regression analysis based on a specific link function might not perform well. This Note proposes a new regression method, the adjoint projection pursuit regression, which does not require specifying the link function in advance. The method is based on the nonparametric adjoint equation, and can be implemented using iteration of a sequence of modified least squares regression. The adjoint projection pursuit regression is shown to be consistent. A simulation study is given to illustrate this procedure

Comparison of microenvironment monitoring with personal monitoring in estimating population exposure to carbon monoxide by
Naihua Duan(
Book
)
2 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This Note compares exposure estimates based on monitoring carbon monoxide in microenvironments to exposure estimates based on personal monitoring. The author reviews methods of estimation, and presents results of estimation. The data indicate that population exposure estimates based on data from the Washington Microenvironment Study, combined with people's activity data from the Washington Urban Scale Study, are about 40 percent higher than estimates based on personal monitoring data from the Urban Scale Study. The former set of exposure estimates is found to be a good predictor of the latter. Nevertheless, generalizations of these findings to other databases might not be valid."Rand abstracts
