Sammanfattning : In this thesis we develop and study non-parametric methods within three major areas of functional data analysis: testing, clustering and prediction. The thesis consists of an introduction to the field, a presentation and discussion of the three areas, and six papers. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : The objective of this thesis is to consider some challenges that arise when conducting causal inference based on observational data. High dimensionality can occur when it is necessary to adjust for many covariates, and flexible models must be used to meet convergence assumptions. The latter may require the use of a novel machine learning estimator. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : This thesis is a contribution to the research area concerned with selection of smoothing parameters in the framework of nonparametric and semiparametric regression. Selection of smoothing parameters is one of the most important issues in this framework and the choice can heavily influence subsequent results. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : A direction is defined here as a multi-dimensional unit vector. Such unitvectors form directional data. Closely related to directional data are axialdata for which each direction is equivalent to the opposite direction.Directional data and axial data arise in various fields of science. LÄS MER
5. On predictions, measurement, and causal inference : Essays on statistical correlations and statistical applications in labor market economics and criminology
Sammanfattning : This thesis consists of five papers covering a broad range of statistical themes, from prediction via correlation measures to causal inference.Paper I uses a nationally representative survey of separated Swedish women to examine whether men who strive to control their partners during their relationships are more likely to stalk or assault their ex-partners after separation.
