The book is geared towards researchers and professionals with little background in regression as well as statistically oriented scientists (biostatisticians, econometricians, quantitative social scientists, and epidemiologists) with knowledge of regression and the desire to begin using more flexible semiparametric models. The book is geared towards researchers and professionals with little background in regression as well as statistically oriented scientists (biostatisticians, econometricians, quantitative social scientists, and epidemiologists) with knowledge of regression and the desire Price: $

The book starts off with a motivating introduction on the consequences of over smoothing or assuming linearity in nonlinear situations. The practice of assuming linearity without justification is ubiquitous in the social sciences and probably reflects convenience rather than 5/5. Abstract This paper applies semiparametric regression models using penalized splines to investigate the profile of well-being over the life span. Using data Cited by: 9.

Semiparametric regression is concerned with the flexible incorporation of non-linear functional relationships in regression analyses. Any application area that benefits from regression analysis can also benefit from semiparametric regression. Assuming only a basic familiarity with ordinary parametric regression, this user-friendly book explains the techniques and benefits of semiparametric.

For semiparametric models, in which the nuisance parameter is infinite-dimensional, the nuisance tangent space is defined as the mean squared closure of all parametric submodel nuisance tangent spaces. The parametric submodel is a true parametric model contained in the semiparametric model.

Though the semiparametric Cox model is the regression model for survival data, which is applied most frequently, other regression models, e.g., parametric regression models also play important roles in practice.

Abstract. Grouped data arise in several diverse contexts in statistical design and analysis. Examples include medical studies in which patients are followed over time and measurements on them recorded repeatedly, educational studies in which students grouped into classrooms and schools are scored on examinations, and sample surveys in which the respondents to questionnaires are grouped within.

ABSTRACTIn this work we introduce different modified estimators for the vector parameter β and an unknown regression function g in semiparametric regression models when censored response observations are replaced with synthetic data points.
