Bayesian semiparametric models for nonignorable missing datamechanisms in logistic regression
Öztürk, Olcay; Kalaylıoğlu Akyıldız, Zeynep Işıl; Department of Statistics (2011)
In this thesis, Bayesian semiparametric models for the missing data mechanisms of nonignorably missing covariates in logistic regression are developed. In the missing data literature, fully parametric approach is used to model the nonignorable missing data mechanisms. In that approach, a probit or a logit link of the conditional probability of the covariate being missing is modeled as a linear combination of all variables including the missing covariate itself. However, nonignorably missing covariates may n...
A computational approach to nonparametric regression: bootstrapping cmars method
Yazıcı, Ceyda; Batmaz, İnci; Department of Statistics (2011)
Bootstrapping is a resampling technique which treats the original data set as a population and draws samples from it with replacement. This technique is widely used, especially, in mathematically intractable problems. In this study, it is used to obtain the empirical distributions of the parameters to determine whether they are statistically significant or not in a special case of nonparametric regression, Conic Multivariate Adaptive Regression Splines (CMARS). Here, the CMARS method, which uses conic quadr...
A Computational approach to detect inhomogeneities in time series data
Yazıcı, Ceyda; Yozgatlıgil, Ceylan; Batmaz, İnci; Department of Statistics (2017)
Detection of possible inhomogeneity within a series is an important problem in time series data. There are many sources from which inhomogeneity can be originated such as mean shift, variance and trend change, gradual change, or sudden decrease or increase in time series. Since time series has many application areas, the detection of changepoints should be investigated before conducting any analysis. Available methods have certain drawbacks that may lead to unreliable inferences. These include the need of i...
Estimation and hypothesis testing in multivariate linear regression models under non normality
İslam, Muhammed Qamarul (Informa UK Limited, 2017-01-01)
This paper discusses the problem of statistical inference in multivariate linear regression models when the errors involved are non normally distributed. We consider multivariate t-distribution, a fat-tailed distribution, for the errors as alternative to normal distribution. Such non normality is commonly observed in working with many data sets, e.g., financial data that are usually having excess kurtosis. This distribution has a number of applications in many other areas of research as well. We use modifie...
Effect of estimation in goodness-of-fit tests
Eren, Emrah; Sürücü, Barış; Department of Statistics (2009)
In statistical analysis, distributional assumptions are needed to apply parametric procedures. Assumptions about underlying distribution should be true for accurate statistical inferences. Goodness-of-fit tests are used for checking the validity of the distributional assumptions. To apply some of the goodness-of-fit tests, the unknown population parameters are estimated. The null distributions of test statistics become complicated or depend on the unknown parameters if population parameters are replaced by ...
