Event Title

Empirical Likelihood Inference in Partial Linear Models for Longitudinal Data

Description

In analyzing longitudinal data, within-subject correlations are a major factor affecting statistical efficiency. Working with a partially linear model for longitudinal data, this talk will consider a subject-wise empirical likelihood-based method that takes the within-subject correlations into consideration to estimate the model parameters efficiently. The numerical results will demonstrate the usefulness of the proposed method.
