Quantitative evaluation of HIV prevention programs by Edward Harris Kaplan ( )
5 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 999 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
How successful are HIV prevention programmes? Which HIV prevention programmes are most cost effective? Which programmes are worth expanding and which should be abandoned altogether? This book addresses the quantitative evaluation of HIV prevention programmes, assessing several different quantitative methods of evaluation

Slicing regression : a link-free regression method by Naihua Duan ( Book )
3 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 83 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 Naihua Duan ( Book )
3 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 79 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
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 75 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
The adjoint projection pursuit regression by Naihua Duan ( Book )
3 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 75 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
