Buonaccorsi Over the last 20 years, comprehensive strategies for treating measurement error in complex models and accounting for the use of extra data to estimate measurement error parameters have emerged. Focusing on both established and novel approaches, Measurement Error: Models, Methods, and Applications provides an overview of the main techniques and illustrates their application in various models. It describes the impacts of measurement errors on naive analyses that ignore them and presents ways to correct for them across a variety of statistical models, from simple one-sample problems to regression models to more complex mixed and time series models.

A measurement error model is a regression model with substantial measurement errors in the variables. Disregarding these measurement errors in estimating the regression parameters results in asymptotically biased estimators. Several methods have been proposed to eliminate, or at least to reduce, this bias, and the relative efficiency and robustness of these methods have been compared. The paper gives an account of these endeavors. In another context, when data are of a categorical nature, classification errors play a similar role as measurement errors in continuous data. The paper also reviews some recent advances in this field. This is a preview of subscription content, access via your institution.
Handbook of Epidemiology pp Cite as. Factors contributing to the presence or absence of disease are not always easily determined or accurately measured. Consequently, epidemiologists are often faced with the task of inferring disease patterns using noisy or indirect measurements of risk factors or covariates. Problems of measurement arise for a number of reasons, including reliance on self-reported information, the use of records of suspect quality, intrinsic biological variability, sampling variability, and laboratory analysis error. Although the reasons for imprecise measurement are diverse, the inference problems they create share in common the structure that statistical models must be fit to data formulated in terms of well-defined but unobservable variables X , using information on measurements W that are less than perfectly correlated with X. Problems of this nature are called measurement error problems, and the statistical models and methods for analyzing such data are called measurement error models.

The following SAS macros can be used to create a multivariate usual intake distribution for multiple dietary components that are consumed nearly every day or episodically. Applications of these macros are described in Zhang et al. The following sample programs illustrate the use of these macros for creating a multivariate Monte Carlo distribution of usual intakes and subsequent calculation of mean usual HEI— scores using NHANES data for smokers, age 20 and older. The first example 1a uses a dataset based on NHANES data, with a small set of variables used to illustrate the method, and the second example 1b uses results stored from the first example. The third example 1c illustrates balanced repeated replication BRR variance estimation and calculations for t-tests comparing mean usual HEI— scores for nonsmokers and smokers, age 20 and older.
I suppose that amounts to the same thing. Or a burglar would have broken in and, annoyed at having found nothing worth stealing, would have walked off with it. I went out and had something to eat before my regular Friday night step meeting at St. He opened his mouth to speak to Thorpe.
