The authors consider dimensionality reduction methods used for prediction, such as reduced rank regression, principal component regression and partial least squares. They show how it is possible to obtain intermediate solutions by estimating simultaneously the latent variables for the predictors and for the responses. They obtain a continuum of solutions(More)
This paper describes computational experiments with an algorithm for control-rounding any series of linked tables such as typically occur in official statistics, for the purpose of confidentiality protection of the individual contributors to the tables. The resulting tables consist only of multiples of the specified rounding base, are additive, and have(More)
INTRODUCTION The presence of pre-existing abdominal wall defect (AWD) could represent a potential contraindication for peritoneal dialysis (PD) treatment. We report the results of our 6-year experience involving simultaneous repair of pre-existing AWD and catheter insertion for PD. METHODS Patients with estimated glomerular filtration rate (e-GFR) 7-10(More)
