Nonparametric Simulation Extrapolation for Measurement Error Models

  title={Nonparametric Simulation Extrapolation for Measurement Error Models},
  author={Dylan Spicker and Michael J. Wallace and Grace Y. Yi},
The presence of measurement error is a widespread issue which, when ignored, can render the results of an analysis unreliable. Numerous corrections for the effects of measurement error have been proposed and studied, often under the assumption of a normally distributed, additive measurement error model. One such correction is the simulation extrapolation method, which provides a flexible way of correcting for the effects of error in a wide variety of models, when the errors are approximately…

Simulation extrapolation estimation in parametric models with Laplace measurement error
The normal-error-based simulation extrapolation (N-SIMEX) procedure provides a simulation-based method to remove or reduce the bias in estimators of parameters in measurement error models. This paper
Nonparametric Identification and Semiparametric Estimation of Classical Measurement Error Models Without Side Information
Virtually all methods aimed at correcting for covariate measurement error in regressions rely on some form of additional information (e.g., validation data, known error distributions, repeated

This paper investigates the bias induced by the naive approach of ignoring covariate measurement error and describes the simulation-extrapolation method, which does not require modeling the covariate process, which is quite attractive in practice.
Semiparametric estimation for measurement error models with validation data
We consider regression problems where error‐prone surrogates of true predictors are collected in a primary data set while accurate measurements of the predictors are available only in a relatively
Nonparametric correction for covariate measurement error in a stratified Cox model.
A nonparametric correction method is proposed for the estimation of regression coefficients, and it is shown that the estimators are asymptotically consistent for the true parameters.

This paper considers the nonparametric estimation of the densities of the latent variable and the error term in the standard measurement error model when two or more measurements are available. Using
