  1. 1. Attrition in Studies of Cognitive Aging

    Författare :Maria Josefsson; Xavier de Luna; Lars Nyberg; Anders Lundquist; Mattias Villani; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Attrition; missing data; age-related cognitive change; non- ignorable dropout; monotone missing pattern; mixture models; pattern- mixture models; imputation; Statistics; statistik;

    Sammanfattning : Longitudinal studies of cognition are preferred to cross-sectional stud- ies, since they offer a direct assessment of age-related cognitive change (within-person change). Statistical methods for analyzing age-related change are widely available. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Bayesian Sequential Inference for Dynamic Regression Models

    Författare :Parfait Munezero; Mattias Villani; Helga Wagner; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Bayesian sequential inference; Dynamic regression models; Particle filter; Online prediction; Particle smoothing; Linear Bayes; Statistics; statistik;

    Sammanfattning : Many processes evolve over time and statistical models need to be adaptive to change. This thesis proposes flexible models and statistical methods for inference about a data generating process that varies over time. The models considered are quite general dynamic predictive models with parameters linked to a set of covariates via link functions. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Exploring patterns of empirical networks

    Författare :Luis E C Rocha; Petter Holme; Kimmo Kaski; Umeå universitet; []

    Sammanfattning : We are constantly struggling to understand how nature works, trying to identify recurrent events and looking for analogies and relations between objects or individuals. Knowing patterns of behavior is powerful and fundamental for survival of any species. LÄS MER

  4. 4. On estimation in econometric systems in the presence of time-varying parameters

    Författare :Kurt Brännäs; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Econometric systems; time-varying parameters; Kalman filtering; stochastic regressors; unknown transition matrix; robustness; simulation;

    Sammanfattning : Economic systems are often subject to structural variability. For the achievement of correct structural specification in econometric modelling it is then important to allow for parameters that are time-varying, and to apply estimation techniques suitably designed for inference in such models.
