Applied Statistics and R Group Presentation on Hypothesis Testing in Ordered Regression Models

Contributed by: Jun Xu
Published: Tuesday, 21 February 2017 10:00 AM
Date: Wednesday, February 22, 2017
Time: 3:00 to 4:00
Room: NQ241
Building: North Quad

Topic: A Comparison between Frequentist and Bayesian Approaches to the Hypothesis Testing of the Parallel Line Assumption in Ordered Regression Models

Abstract: In this project, we first review existing literature on cumulative logit models along with the parallel line assumption and present results using various ways to test the assumption. Building on the traditional frequentist framework, we introduce a Bayesian approach to providing an alternative method to estimate various cumulative logit models and a conceptually more compelling method for testing the parallel line assumption. Empirical examples are used to showcase and adjudicate between the old and new methods.
