Building from the consideration of closeness, we propose the mode quasi-range as an alternative scale parameter. Application of this scale parameter to formulate the population standard deviation is investigated leading to an efficient sample estimator of standard deviation from the point of...
Count data with excess zeros often occurs in areas such as public health, epidemiology, psychology, sociology, engineering, and agriculture. Zero-inflated Poisson (ZIP) regression and zero-inflated negative binomial (ZINB) regression are useful for modeling such data, but because of hierarchical...
Linear mixed effects model (LMEM) is efficient in modeling repeated measures longitudinal data. However, little research has been done in developing goodness-of-fit measures that can evaluate the models, particularly those that can be interpreted in an absolute sense without referencing a null...
While body fat is the most accurate measure of obesity, its measurement requires special equipment that can be costly and time consuming to operate. Attention has thus typically focused on the easier to calculate body mass index (BMI). However, the ability of BMI to accurately identify obesity...
ARFIMAX models are applied in estimating the intra-day realized volatility of the CAC40 and DAX30 indices. Volatility clustering and asymmetry characterize the logarithmic realized volatility of both the indices. The ARFIMAX model with time-varying conditional heteroskedasticity is the best...
Model selection strategies play an important, if not explicit, role in quantitative research. The inferential properties of these strategies are largely unknown, therefore, there is little basis for recommending (or avoiding) any particular set of strategies. In this paper, we evaluate several...
In this paper, we investigate the estimation problem concerning a progressively type-II censored sample from the two-parameter bathtub-shaped lifetime distribution. We use the maximum likelihood method to obtain the point estimators of the parameters. We also provide a method for constructing an...
Over 50 years ago, in a 1955 issue of JASA, a paper on a bounded continuous distribution by Topp and Leone C.W. Topp and F.C. Leone, A family of J-shaped frequency functions , J. Am. Stat. Assoc. 50(269) (1955), pp. 209-219 appeared (the subject was dormant for over 40 years but recently the...
Goel proposed generalization of the Goel-Okumoto (G-O) software reliability growth model (SRGM), in order to model the failure intensity function, i.e. the rate of occurrence of failures (ROCOF) that initially increases and then decreases (I/D), which occurs in many projects due to the learning...
