Multiple imputation for nonresponse in surveys
by
Donald B Rubin(
Book
)
23 editions published between 1987 and 2011 in English and held by 607 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Demonstrates how nonresponse in sample surveys and censuses can be handled by replacing each missing value with two or more multiple imputations. Clearly illustrates the advantages of modern computing to such handle surveys, and demonstrates the benefit of this statistical technique for researchers who must analyze them

Contrasts and effect sizes in behavioral research : a correlational approach
by
Robert Rosenthal(
Book
)
11 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 405 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Contrasts are statistical procedures for asking focused questions of data. Compared to diffuse or omnibus questions, focused questions are characterized by greater conceptual clarity and greater statistical power when examining those focused questions. If an effect truly exists, we are more likely to discover it and to believe it to be real when asking focused questions rather than omnibus ones. Researchers, teachers of research methods, and graduate students will be familiar with the principles and procedures of contrast analysis but will also be introduced to a series of newly developed concepts, measures, and indices that permit a wider and more useful application of contrast analysis. This volume takes on this new approach by introducing a family of correlational effect size estimates."Jacket

Matched sampling for causal effects
by
Donald B Rubin(
Book
)
19 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and held by 351 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Matched sampling is often used to help assess the casual effect of some exposure or intervention, typically when randomised experiments are not available or cannot be conducted. This text provides an accessible introduction to the study of matched sampling

Estimating the effect of unearned income on labor supply, earnings, savings, and consumption : evidence from a survey of lottery players
by
Guido Imbens(
Book
)
15 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Knowledge of the effect of unearned income on economic behavior of individuals in general, and on labor supply in particular, is of great importance to policy makers. Estimation of income effects, however, is a difficult problem because income is not randomly assigned and exogenous changes in income are difficult to identify. Here we exploit the randomized assignment of large amounts of money over long periods of time through lotteries. We carried out a survey of people who played the lottery in the mideighties and estimate the effect of lottery winnings on their subsequent earnings, labor supply, consumption, and savings. We find that winning a modest prize ($15,000 per year for twenty years) does not affect labor supply or earnings substantially. Winning such a prize does not considerably reduce savings. Winning a much larger prize ($80,000 rather than $15,000 per year) reduces labor supply as measured by hours, as well as participation and social security earnings; elasticities for hours and earnings are around 0.20 and for participation around 0.14. Winning a large versus modest amount also leads to increased expenditures on cars and larger home values, although mortgages values appear to increase by approximately the same amount. Winning $80,000 increases overall savings, although savings in retirement accounts are not significantly affected. The results do not vary much by gender, age, or prior employment status. There is some evidence that for those with zero earnings prior to winning the lottery there is a positive effect of winning a small prize on subsequent labor market participation
