Singlestage Cluster Sampling with Binary Misclassification Errors
(JKUAT Press Ltd, 2012)
Misclassification errors in single stage cluster sampling are considered where a binary variable is under study. The expectation and variance of the estimator is derived assuming correlated response errors. It is shown ...
Modelling Internally Displaced Persons’ (IDPs) Time to Resuming their Ancestral Homes after IDPs’ Camps in Northern Uganda Using Parametric Methods
In this paper the time that the Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) took to return from IDPs Camps to their ancestral homes in Northern Uganda was modeled using parametric methods. A retrospective dataset was collected ...
Comparison of the Ratio Estimate to the Local Linear Polynomial Estimate of Finite Population Totals
(International Journal of Engineering, Science and Mathematics, 2013-03)
In this paper, attempt to study effects of extreme observations on two estimators of finite population total theoretically and by simulation is made. We compare the ratio estimate with the local linear polynomial estimate ...
Nonparametric Confidence Interval for a Shift Parameter for Cauchy distribution
(Ife Centre for Psychological Studies, 2005)
In this article an application of a kernel based nonparametric approach in constructing a large sample nonparametric confidence interval for a shift parameter is considered. The method is illustrated using the Cauchy ...
Asymptotic linear estimation of the quantile function of a location-scale family of distributions based on selected order statistics
(AFRICAN RESEARCH, 2005)
Some general asymptotic methods of estimating the quantile function, Q(ξ), 0>ξ>1 of location-scale families of distributions based on a few selected order statistics are considered, with applications to some non-regular ...
A Bayesian Test for Equality of Scale Parameters of Several Exponential Distributions
This article develops a Bayesian test for equality of scale parameters of several exponential distributions. The null distribution of the test statistic is approximated by the chi-square distribution using heuristic reasoning ...
