SUMMARY We consider binary regression models when some of the predictors are measured with error. For normal measurement errors, structural maximum likelihood estimates are considered. We show that if the measurement error is large, the usual estimate of the probability of the event in question can be substantially in error, especially for high risk groups. In the situation of large measurement error, we investigate a conditional maximum likelihood estimator and its properties. 

Errors-in-variables regression using estimated latent variables

This note considers a method for estimating regression parameters from the data containing measurement errors using some natural estimates of the unobserved explanatory variables. It is shown that

Errors in Variables

When independent variables in regression models are measured with error, the resulting coefficient estimates are biased. Formulae are given to adjust estimated coefficients obtained from linear

Covariate Measurement Error in Logistic Regression

Abstract : In a logistic regression model when covariates are subject to measurement error the naive estimator, obtained by regressing on the observed covariates, is asymptotically biased. This

Errors-in-Variables Regression Using Stein Estimates

Abstract A method is proposed for estimating regression parameters from data containing covariate measurement errors by using Stein estimates of the unobserved true covariates. The method produces

The identification of logistic regression models with errors in the variables

The simple logistic regression model with normal measurement error and normal regressor is shown to be identifiable without any extra information about the measurement error. The multiple logistic

On the Maximum Likelihood Estimate for Logistic Errors-in-Variables Regression Models.

Abstract : Maximum likelihood estimates for errors-in-variables models are not always root-N consistent. We provide an example of this for logistic regression. (Author)

A Simulation Study of Measurement Error Correction Methods in Logistic Regression

It is shown that the regression calibration method is a very good alternative to more mathematically sophisticated methods in this situation, and the naive estimator is the result of simply ignoring the fact that some of the explanatory variables are measured with error.

Estimation of Linear and Nonlinear Errors-in-Variables Models Using Validation Data

Abstract Consistent estimators for linear and nonlinear regression models with measurement errors in variables in the presence of validation data are proposed. The estimation procedures are based on

Repeated Probit Regression When Covariates Are Measured With Error

A model for repeated binary regression when a covariate is measured with error, where a linear mixed model is used to fit the repeated covariate and a model for the correlated binary responses conditional on thelinear mixed model estimates is fit to the repeated binary data using generalized estimating equations.



The Effect of Errors in Diagnosis and Measurement on the Estimation of the Probability of an Event

Abstract This article investigates the effect of misclassification and measurement error in the basic data on the asymptotic bias and efficiency of the logistic regression (LR) and normal

Effects of approximation in exposure assessments on estimates of exposure- response relationships.

In the present report a procedure is described for reducing the bias due to random error in the estimated exposure-response relationship from a cohort mortality study, based on a mechanism for adjusting exposure assessments, taking into account the distribution of exposures, and the independently estimated distribution of measurement errors.

Censored Data and the Bootstrap

The bootstrap, which is an elaboration of the jackknife, provides a general method for answering questions about the parameters of an unknown distribution when the data is subject to right censoring.

Pseudo Maximum Likelihood Estimation: Theory and Applications

Abstract : Pseudo maximum likelihood estimation easily extends to k parameter models, and is of interest in problems in which the likelihood surface is ill-behaved in higher dimensions but

Predicting coronary heart disease in middle-aged and older persons. The Framington study.

Of 1,025 men and 1,445 women, aged 49 to 82 years, who were free of coronary heart disease (CHD), 79 men and 63 women subsequently had CHD, and predictability was at least as good as that obtained by the usual CHD risk profile at younger ages.

Introduction and General

Water is the most important chemical compound on Earth. When men settled down to agriculture and farming, they built their houses near potable water resources, such as rivers and lakes. Increasing
