DEVELOPMENT OF CHAIN-TYPE EXPONENTIAL ESTIMATORS FOR POPULATION VARIANCE IN TWOPHASE SAMPLING DESIGN IN PRESENCE OF RANDOM NON-RESPONS

G. N. Singh/ Amod Kumar/ Gajendra K. Vishwakarma

In this paper, an investigation has been carried out to deal with a unified approach of estimation procedures of population variance in two-phase sampling design under missing at random non-response mechanism circumstances. Using two auxiliary variables, we have developed different chain-type exponential estimators of finite population variance for two different set-ups and studied their properties under the different assumption of random non-response considered by Tracy and Osahan (1994). The c(..)

ON A LESS CUMBERSOME METHOD OF ESTIMATION OF PARAMETERS OF LINDLEY DISTRIBUTION BY ORDER STATISTICS

M. R. Irshad/ R. Maya

In this article, we have derived suitable U-statistics from a sample of any size exceeding a specified integer to estimate the location and scale parameters of Lindley distribution without the evaluation of means, variances and co-variances of order statistics of an equivalent sample size arising from the corresponding standard form of distribution. The exact variances of the estimators have been also obtained.

EXTENDED EXPONENTIATED POWER LINDLEY DISTRIBUTION

V. Ranjbar/ M. Alizadeh/ G. G. Hademani

In this study, we introduce a new model called the Extended Exponentiated Power Lindley distribution which extends the Lindley distribution and has increasing, bathtub and upside down shapes for the hazard rate function. It also includes the power Lindley distribution as a special case. Several statistical properties of the distribution are explored, such as the density, hazard rate, survival, quantile functions, and moments. Estimation using the maximum likelihood method and inference on a rand(..)

BAYESIAN SPATIAL ANALYSIS OF CHRONIC DISEASES IN ELDERLY CHINESE PEOPLE USING A STAR MODEL

Ping Gao/ Hikaru Hasegawa

Chronic diseases have become important factors affecting the health of elderly Chinese people. Because the prevalence of chronic diseases varies among the provinces, it is necessary to understand the spatial effects on these diseases, as well as their relationships with potential risk factors. This study applies a structured additive regression model and the R2BayesX package to conduct a Bayesian analysis. The data are taken from the 2000, 2006, and 2010 Chinese Urban and Rural Elderly Populatio(..)

LINDLEY PARETO DISTRIBUTION

Halim Zeghdoudi/ Lazri Nouara/ Djabrane Yahia

In this paper, we introduce a new Lindley Pareto distribution, which offers a more flexible model for modelling lifetime data. Some of its mathematical properties like density function, cumulative distribution, mode, mean, variance, and Shannon entropy are established. A simulation study is carried out to examine the bias and mean square error of the maximum likelihood estimators of the unknown parameters. Three real data sets are fitted to illustrate the importance and the flexibility of the pr(..)

THE CHOICE OF NORMALIZATION METHOD AND RANKINGS OF THE SET OF OBJECTS BASED ON COMPOSITE INDICATOR VALUES

Marek Walesiak

The choice of the normalization method is one of the steps for constructing a composite indicator for metric data (see, e.g. Nardo et al., 2008, pp. 19-21). Normalization methods lead to different rankings of the set of objects based on composite indicator values. In the article 18 normalization methods and 5 aggregation measures (composite indicators) were taken into account. In the first step the groups of normalization methods, leading to identical rankings of the set of objects, were identif(..)

THE COMPARISON OF INCOME DISTRIBUTIONS FOR WOMEN AND MEN IN POLAND USING SEMIPARAMETRIC REWEIGHTING APPROACH

Dominika Marta Urbańczyk/ Joanna Małgorzata Landmesser

In this paper, we compare the income distributions for women and men in Poland. The gender wage gap can only be partially explained by different men’s and women’s characteristics. The unexplained part of the gap is usually attributed to the wage discrimination. The objective of the study is to extend the OaxacaBlinder decomposition procedure for the pay gap along the whole income distribution. To describe differences between two distributions of incomes we use a semiparametric reweighting approa(..)

IS POLAND BECOMING NORDIC?  CHANGING TRENDS IN HOUSEHOLD STRUCTURES  IN POLAND AND FINLAND WITH THE EMPHASIS  ON PEOPLE LIVING ALONE

Urszula Ala-Karvia/ Marta Hozer-Koćmiel/ Sandra Misiak-Kwit/ Barbara Staszko

This paper presents a comparative analysis of the household structure and its dynamics between post-economic-transformation Poland and Scandinavianwelfare-state Finland, with a focus on one-person households (OPH). Based on the literature, two research hypotheses were formulated: (H1) strong differences in the household structure in Finland and Poland still occur, and (H2) the share of one-person households is at very different levels in the two countries. However, due to the globally growing po(..)
