Download Measurement Error and Misclassification in Statistics and by Paul Gustafson PDF

By Paul Gustafson

Mismeasurement of explanatory variables is a standard risk while utilizing statistical modeling concepts, and especially so in fields equivalent to biostatistics and epidemiology the place perceived danger elements can't continuously be measured effectively. With this angle and a spotlight on either non-stop and express variables, dimension blunders and Misclassification in facts and Epidemiology: affects and Bayesian changes examines the results and Bayesian treatments in these situations the place the explanatory variable can't be measured with precision.The writer explores either size errors in non-stop variables and misclassification in discrete variables, and indicates how Bayesian equipment could be used to permit for mismeasurement. A wide diversity of issues, from simple examine to extra advanced ideas akin to "wrong-model" becoming, make this an invaluable study paintings for practitioners, scholars and researchers in biostatistics and epidemiology."
