We propose local polynomial estimators for the conditional mean of a continuous response when only pooled response data are collected under different pooling designs. Asymptotic properties of these estimators are investigated and compared. Extensive simulation studies are carried out to compare finite sample performance of the proposed estimators under various model settings and pooling strategies. We apply the proposed local polynomial regression methods to two real-life applications to…

NONPARAMETRIC ESTIMATION WITH AGGREGATED DATA
We introduce a kernel-based estimator of the density function and regression function for data that have been grouped into family totals. We allow for a common intrafamily component but require that
Nonparametric regression with homogeneous group testing data
We introduce new nonparametric predictors for homogeneous pooled data in the context of group testing for rare abnormalities and show that they achieve optimal rates of convergence. In particular,

Single-index regression for pooled biomarker data
TLDR
This article proposes a semiparametric approach that originates from the context of the single-index model, and illustrates the finite sample performance of the estimators through simulation and by applying it to a diabetes data set and a chemokine data set.
Semiparametric regression models for a right-skewed outcome subject to pooling.
TLDR
A novel semiparametric estimation method based on an adaptation of the quasi-likelihood approach that can be applied to a right-skewed outcome subject to pooling is proposed and compared with an existing estimation technique that provides valid estimates only when pools are formed from specimens with identical predictor values.
Bias, efficiency, and agreement for group-testing regression models
TLDR
Depending on how groups are formed, group-testing regression models can perform very well when compared with the analogous models based on individual observations, however, different grouping strategies can provide very different results in finite samples.
Pooling Designs for Outcomes under a Gaussian Random Effects Model
TLDR
This article considers the problem of estimating the parameters of a Gaussian random effects model when the repeated outcome is subject to pooling, and considers different pooling designs for the efficient maximum likelihood estimation of variance components.
