In statistics , errors-in-variables models or measurement error models    are regression models that account for measurement errors in the independent variables. In contrast, standard regression models assume that those regressors have been measured exactly, or observed without error; as such, those models account only for errors in the dependent variables , or responses. In the case when some regressors have been measured with errors, estimation based on the standard assumption leads to inconsistent estimates, meaning that the parameter estimates do not tend to the true values even in very large samples. For simple linear regression the effect is an underestimate of the coefficient, known as the attenuation bias. In non-linear models the direction of the bias is likely to be more complicated.

## Errors-in-variables models

Handbook of Epidemiology pp Cite as. Factors contributing to the presence or absence of disease are not always easily determined or accurately measured. Consequently, epidemiologists are often faced with the task of inferring disease patterns using noisy or indirect measurements of risk factors or covariates. Problems of measurement arise for a number of reasons, including reliance on self-reported information, the use of records of suspect quality, intrinsic biological variability, sampling variability, and laboratory analysis error. Although the reasons for imprecise measurement are diverse, the inference problems they create share in common the structure that statistical models must be fit to data formulated in terms of well-defined but unobservable variables X , using information on measurements W that are less than perfectly correlated with X. Problems of this nature are called measurement error problems, and the statistical models and methods for analyzing such data are called measurement error models. Skip to main content.

Focusing on both established and novel approaches, Measurement Error: Models, Methods, and Applications provides an overview of the main techniques and illustrates their application in various models. It describes the impacts of measurement errors on naive analyses that ignore them and presents ways to correct for them across a variety of statistical models, from simple one-sample problems to regression models to more complex mixed and time series models. The book covers correction methods based on known measurement error parameters, replication, internal or external validation data, and, for some models, instrumental variables. It emphasizes the use of several relatively simple methods, moment corrections, regression calibration, simulation extrapolation SIMEX , modified estimating equation methods, and likelihood techniques. Accessible to a broad audience, this book explains how to model measurement error, the effects of ignoring it, and how to correct for it. ## Measurement Error: Models, Methods, and Applications

This paper advocates likelihood analysis for regression models with measurement errors in explanatory variables, for data problems in which the relevant distributions can be adequately modelled. Although computationally difficult, maximum likelihood estimates are more efficient than those based on first and second moment assumptions, and likelihood ratio inferences can be substantially better than those based on asymptotic normality of estimates. The EM algorithm is presented as a straightforward approach for likelihood analysis of normal linear regression with normal explanatory variables, and normal replicate measurements.

Article Information Abstract Measurement errors in economic data are pervasive and nontrivial in size. The presence of measurement errors causes biased and inconsistent parameter estimates and leads to erroneous conclusions to various degrees in economic analysis. While linear errors-in-variables models are usually handled with well-known instrumental variable methods, this article provides an overview of recent research papers that derive estimation methods that provide consistent estimates for nonlinear models with measurement errors. We review models with both classical and nonclassical measurement errors, and with misclassification of discrete variables. For each of the methods surveyed, we describe the key ideas for identification and estimation, and discuss its application whenever it is currently available.

The Berkson error model is a description of random error or misclassification in measurement. Unlike classical error , Berkson error causes little or no bias in the measurement. An example of Berkson error arises in exposure assessment in epidemiological studies. Berkson error may predominate over classical error in cases where exposure data are highly aggregated. While this kind of error reduces the power of a study, risk estimates themselves are not themselves attenuated as would be the case where random error predominates.

Summary: Aligned rank tests are introduced in the linear regression model with possible measurement errors. Unknown nuisance parameters are estimated first and then classical rank tests are applied on the residuals. Two situations are discussed: testing about an intercept in the linear regression model considering the slope parameter as nuisance and testing of parallelism of several regression lines, i.

Он постарался выкинуть этот эпизод из головы. Если повезет, он успеет вернуться и все же съездить с Сьюзан в их любимый Стоун-Мэнор. Туда и обратно, - повторил он.  - Туда и обратно. Если бы он тогда знал… ГЛАВА 9 Техник систем безопасности Фил Чатрукьян собирался заглянуть в шифровалку на минуту-другую - только для того, чтобы взять забытые накануне бумаги.

Беккер еще сильнее вцепился во внутреннюю часть проема и оттолкнулся ногами. Тело налилось свинцовой тяжестью, словно кто-то изо всех сил тянул его. Беккер, стараясь преодолеть эту тяжесть, приподнялся на локтях.

Тут вступил агент Колиандер: - Как вы приказали, мы повсюду следовали за Халохотом. В морг он не пошел, поскольку в этот момент напал на след еще какого-то парня в пиджаке и галстуке, вроде бы штатского. - Штатского? - переспросил Фонтейн. Скорее всего это игры Стратмора: он мудро решил не впутывать в это дело агентство. - Фильтры Протокола передачи файлов выходят из строя! - крикнул кто-то из технического персонала. Не сбиваясь с курса. Именно эта целеустремленность всегда изумляла, эта неколебимая верность принципам, стране, идеалам.
