Missing and modified data in nonparametric estimation: with R examples

By: Efromovich, Sam.
Material type: materialTypeLabelBookPublisher: New York CRC Press 2018Description: xv, 448p. With index.ISBN: 9781138054882.Subject(s): Mathematical statistics | Statistics - Methodology | Missing observations | Non parametric RegressionDDC classification: 519.5 Summary: This book presents a systematic and unified approach for modern non parametric treatment of missing and modified data via examples of density and hazard rate estimation, non parametric regression, filtering signals, and time series analysis. All basic types of missing at random and not at random, biasing, truncation, censoring, and measurement errors are discussed, and their treatment is explained. Ten chapters of the book cover basic cases of direct data, biased data, nondestructive and destructive missing, survival data modified by truncation and censoring, missing survival data, stationary and nonstationary time series and processes, and ill-posed modifications. The coverage is suitable for self-study or a one-semester course for graduate students with a prerequisite of a standard course in introductory probability. Exercises of various levels of difficulty will be helpful for the instructor and self-study. The book is primarily about practically important small samples. It explains when consistent estimation is possible, and why in some cases missing data should be ignored and why others must be considered. If missing or data modification makes consistent estimation impossible, then the author explains what type of action is needed to restore the lost information. The book contains more than a hundred figures with simulated data that explain virtually every setting, claim, and development. The companion R software package allows the reader to verify, reproduce and modify every simulation and used estimators. This makes the material fully transparent and allows one to study it interactively. https://www.crcpress.com/Missing-and-Modified-Data-in-Nonparametric-Estimation-With-R-Examples/Efromovich/p/book/9781138054882
