Minimum distance model checking in Berkson measurement error models with validation data
MetadataShow full item record
This talk will present a class of tests for ﬁtting a parametric model to the regression function in the presence of Berkson measurement error in the covariates without specifying the measurement error density but when validation data is available. The availability of validation data makes it possible to estimate the calibrated regression function non-parametrically. The proposed tests are based on a class of minimized integrated square distances between a nonparametric estimate of the calibrated regression function and the parametric null model being ﬁtted. The asymptotic distributions of these tests under the null hypothesis and against certain alternatives are established. Surprisingly, these asymptotic distributions are the same as in the case of known measurement error density. In comparison, the asymptotic distributions of the corresponding minimum distance estimators of the null model parameters are aﬀected by the estimation of the calibrated regression function. A simulation study shows desirable performance of a member of the proposed class of estimators and tests.
