It is well known that the maximum likelihood fit of the logistic regression parameters can be greatly affected by atypical observations. Several robust alternatives have been proposed. However, if we consider the model from the case-control viewpoint, it is clear that current techniques can exhibit poor behaviour in many common situations. A new robust class of estimation procedures is introduced. The estimators are constructed via a minimum distance approach after identifying the model with a… CONTINUE READING
