  • Accounting for model uncertainty in multiple imputation under complex sampling
    Scand. J. Stat. (IF 0.924) Pub Date : 2020-06-03
    Gyuhyeong Goh; Jae Kwang Kim

    Multiple imputation provides an effective way to handle missing data. When several possible models are under consideration for the data, multiple imputation is typically performed under a single‐best model selected from the candidate models. This single‐model selection approach ignores the uncertainty associated with the model selection and so leads to underestimation of the variance of multiple imputation

  • Sufficient Dimension Reduction based on Distance‐Weighted Discrimination

    In this paper we introduce a sufficient dimension reduction (SDR) algorithm based on Distance‐ Weighted Discrimination (DWD). Our methods is shown to be robust on the dimension p of the predictors in our problem, and it also utilizes some new computational results in the DWD literature to propose a computationally faster algorithm than previous classification‐based algorithms in the SDR literature

  • Models and inference for on–off data via clipped Ornstein–Uhlenbeck processes
    Scand. J. Stat. (IF 0.924) Pub Date : 2020-05-31
    Emil Aas Stoltenberg; Nils Lid Hjort

    We introduce a model for recurrent event data subject to left‐, right‐, and intermittent‐censoring. The observations consist of binary sequences (along with covariates) for each individual under study. These sequences are modeled as generated by latent Ornstein–Uhlenbeck processes being above or below certain thresholds. Features of the latent process and the thresholds are taken as functions of covariates

  • Schwartz‐type model selection for ergodic stochastic differential equation models

    We study theoretical foundation of model comparison for ergodic stochastic differential equation (SDE) models and an extension of the applicable scope of the conventional Bayesian information criterion. Different from previous studies, we suppose that the candidate models are possibly misspecified models, and we consider both Wiener and a pure‐jump Lévy noise‐driven SDE.

    Margrethe Kvale Loe; Håkon Tjelmeland

    The main challenge in ensemble‐based filtering methods is the updating of a prior ensemble to a posterior ensemble. In the ensemble Kalman filter (EnKF), a linear‐Gaussian model is introduced to overcome this issue, and the prior ensemble is updated with a linear shift. In the current article, we consider how the underlying ideas of the EnKF can be applied when the state vector consists of binary variables

    State space models (SSMs) are now ubiquitous in many fields and increasingly complicated with observed and unobserved variables often interacting in non‐linear fashions. The crucial task of validating model assumptions thus becomes difficult, particularly since some assumptions are formulated about unobserved states and thus cannot be checked with data.

    In health research interest often lies in modeling a failure time process but in many cohort studies failure status is only determined at scheduled assessment times. While the assessment times may be fixed upon study entry, individuals may become lost to follow‐up and miss visits subsequent to the time of loss to follow‐up.

  • Estimation of causal continuous‐time autoregressive moving average random fields
    Scand. J. Stat. (IF 0.924) Pub Date : 2020-01-24
    Claudia Klüppelberg; Viet Son Pham

    We estimate model parameters of Lévy‐driven causal continuous‐time autoregressive moving average random fields by fitting the empirical variogram to the theoretical counterpart using a weighted least squares (WLS) approach. Subsequent to deriving asymptotic results for the variogram estimator, we show strong consistency and asymptotic normality of the parameter estimator. Furthermore, we conduct a

  • Inference under pivotal sampling: Properties, variance estimation, and application to tesselation for spatial sampling
    Scand. J. Stat. (IF 0.924) Pub Date : 2020-01-14
    Guillaume Chauvet; Ronan Le Gleut

    Unequal probability sampling is commonly used for sample selection. In the context of spatial sampling, the variables of interest often present a positive spatial correlation, so that it is intuitively relevant to select spatially balanced samples. In this article, we study the properties of pivotal sampling and propose an application to tesselation for spatial sampling. We also propose a simple conservative

  • Hypothesis testing for quantitative trait locus effects in both location and scale in genetic backcross studies
    Scand. J. Stat. (IF 0.924) Pub Date : 2020-01-14
    Guanfu Liu; Pengfei Li; Yukun Liu; Xiaolong Pu

    Testing the existence of a quantitative trait locus (QTL) effect is an important task in QTL mapping studies. Most studies concentrate on the case where the phenotype distributions of different QTL groups follow normal distributions with the same unknown variance. In this paper we make a more general assumption that the phenotype distributions come from a location‐scale distribution family. We derive

  • A generalized semiparametric regression and its efficient estimation
    Scand. J. Stat. (IF 0.924) Pub Date : 2020-01-03
    Lu Lin; Lili Liu; Xia Cui; Kangning Wang

    We investigate a generalized semiparametric regression. Such a model can avoid the risk of wrongly choosing the base measure function. We propose a profile likelihood to efficiently estimate both parameter and nonparametric function. The main difference from the classical profile likelihood is that the profile likelihood proposed is a functional of the base measure function, instead of a function of

  • The predictive distributions of thinning‐based count processes
    Scand. J. Stat. (IF 0.924) Pub Date : 2019-12-26
    Yang Lu

    This paper shows that the term structure of conditional (i.e. predictive) distributions allows for closed form expression in a large family of (possibly higher order or infinite order) thinning‐based count processes such as INAR(p), INARCH(p), NBAR(p), and INGARCH(1,1). Such predictive distributions are currently often deemed intractable by the literature and existing approximation methods are usually

  • Conditional covariance penalties for mixed models
    Scand. J. Stat. (IF 0.924) Pub Date : 2019-12-23
    Benjamin Säfken; Thomas Kneib

    The prediction error for mixed models can have a conditional or a marginal perspective depending on the research focus. We introduce a novel conditional version of the optimism theorem for mixed models linking the conditional prediction error to covariance penalties for mixed models. Different possibilities for estimating these conditional covariance penalties are introduced. These are bootstrap methods

  • Geometric consistency of principal component scores for high‐dimensional mixture models and its application
    Scand. J. Stat. (IF 0.924) Pub Date : 2019-12-23
    Kazuyoshi Yata; Makoto Aoshima

    In this article, we consider clustering based on principal component analysis (PCA) for high‐dimensional mixture models. We present theoretical reasons why PCA is effective for clustering high‐dimensional data. First, we derive a geometric representation of high‐dimension, low‐sample‐size (HDLSS) data taken from a two‐class mixture model. With the help of the geometric representation, we give geometric

  • Asymptotic normality of generalized maximum spacing estimators for multivariate observations
    Scand. J. Stat. (IF 0.924) Pub Date : 2019-12-23
    Kristi Kuljus; Bo Ranneby

    In this paper, the maximum spacing method is considered for multivariate observations. Nearest neighbor balls are used as a multidimensional analogue to univariate spacings. A class of information‐type measures is used to generalize the concept of maximum spacing estimators of model parameters. Asymptotic normality of these generalized maximum spacing estimators is proved when the assigned model class

  • Beyond tail median and conditional tail expectation: Extreme risk estimation using tail Lp‐optimization
    Scand. J. Stat. (IF 0.924) Pub Date : 2019-12-18
    Laurent Gardes; Stéphane Girard; Gilles Stupfler

    The conditional tail expectation (CTE) is an indicator of tail behavior that takes into account both the frequency and magnitude of a tail event. However, the asymptotic normality of its empirical estimator requires that the underlying distribution possess a finite variance; this can be a strong restriction in actuarial and financial applications. A valuable alternative is the median shortfall (MS)

  • Confidence intervals for variance component ratios in unbalanced linear mixed models
    Scand. J. Stat. (IF 0.924) Pub Date : 2019-12-18
    Mahesh N. Fernando; Ronald W. Butler

    Methods for constructing confidence intervals for variance component ratios in general unbalanced mixed models are developed. The methods are based on inverting the distribution of the signed root of the log‐likelihood ratio statistic constructed from either the restricted maximum likelihood or the full likelihood. As this distribution is intractable, the inversion is rather based on using a saddlepoint
