Assessing the accuracy of the maximum likelihood estimator: Observed versus expected Fisher information

- B. Efron, D. Hinkley
- Mathematics
- 1 December 1978

SUMMARY This paper concerns normal approximations to the distribution of the maximum likelihood estimator in one-parameter families. The traditional variance approximation is 1/1.I, where 0 is the… Expand

Inference about the change-point from cumulative sum tests

- D. Hinkley
- Mathematics
- 1 December 1971

SUMMARY The point of change in mean in a sequence of normal random variables can be estimated from a cumulative sum test scheme. The asymptotic distribution of this estimate and associated test… Expand

Inference about the change-point in a sequence of binomial variables

- D. Hinkley, Elizabeth A. Hinkley
- Mathematics
- 1 April 1970

Abstract : The report discusses the problem of making inference about the point in a sequence of zero-one variables at which the binomial parameter changes. The asymptotic distribution of the maximum… Expand

On power transformations to symmetry

- D. Hinkley
- Mathematics
- 1 April 1975

SUMMARY Transformations to symmetry, or approximate symmetry, are considered. In particular, properties of simple estimates based on equitailed order statistics are derived. Examples include… Expand

Jackknifing in Unbalanced Situations

- D. Hinkley
- Mathematics
- 1 August 1977

Both the standard jackknife and a weighted jackknife are investigated in the general linear model situation. Properties of bias reduction and standard error estimation are derived. and the weighted… Expand

Inference about the intersection in two-phase regression

- D. Hinkley
- Mathematics
- 1 December 1969

In recent years increasing interest has been shown in problems of discontinuity in models for sequences of random variables. Essentially two distinct problems arise. The first is that of testing a… Expand

On Quick Choice of Power Transformation

- D. Hinkley
- Mathematics
- 1 March 1977

In an earlier article (Hinkley, 1975) the author has discussed an order‐statistic method for the fitting of power transformations of data to obtain approximate symmetry of transformed data… Expand

Inference in Two-Phase Regression

- D. Hinkley
- Mathematics
- 1 December 1971

Abstract Procedures are outlined for obtaining maximum likelihood estimates and likelihood confidence regions in the intersecting two-phase linear regression model. The procedures are illustrated on… Expand
