The application of disaggregation methods to the unemployment rate of Turkey
Tüker, Utku Göksel; Yozgatlıgil, Ceylan; Department of Statistics (2010)
Modeling and forecasting of the unemployment rate of a country is very important to be able to take precautions on the governmental policies. The available unemployment rate data of Turkey provided by the Turkish Statistical Institute (TURKSTAT) are not in suitable format to have a time series model. The unemployment rate data between 1988 and 2009 create a problem of building a reliable time series model due to the insufficient number and irregular form of observations. The application of disaggregation me...
An Approximate Stance Map of The Spring Mass Hopper with Gravity Correction For Nonsymmetric Locomotions
Arslan, Omuer; Saranlı, Uluç; Morgul, Omer (2009-05-17)
The Spring-Loaded Inverted Pendulum (SLIP) model has long been established as an effective and accurate descriptive model for running animals of widely differing sizes and morphologies, while also serving as a basis for several hopping robot designs. Further research on this model led to the discovery of several analytic approximations to its normally nonintegrable dynamics. However, these approximations mostly focus on steady-state running with symmetric trajectories due to their linearization of gravitati...
The Effects of inspection error and rework on quality loss for a nominal-the-best type quality characteristic
Taşeli, Aysun; Köksal, Gülser; Department of Industrial Engineering (2004)
Taguchi defines quality loss as the loss imposed to the consumer for each unit of deviation from the target consumer requirements. In this thesis, the effects of inspection error and rework on quality loss are studied for a nominal-the-best type quality characteristic. The distribution of the quality characteristic in a production environment where there are inspection error and a separate rework facility is investigated. 100 % inspection policy is considered. After deriving the mean and variance of the res...
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...
Multivariate time series modeling of the number of applicants and beneficiary households for conditional cash transfer program in Turkey
Ortakaya, Ahmet Fatih; Yozgatlıgil, Ceylan; Department of Statistics (2009)
Conditional Cash Transfer (CCT) is a social assistance program which aims for investing in human capital by enabling families under risk of poverty to send their children to school and to benefit from health services regularly. CCT aims for decreasing poverty by means of cash transfers in the short run and aims for investing in children’s human capital by providing basic preventative health care, regular school attendance and nutrition in the long run. Under the state of these aims, beginning from 1990s, mo...
