Abstract or Summary
  • This thesis advocates the use of maximum likelihood analysis for generalized regression models with measurement error in a single explanatory variable. This will be done first by presenting a computational algorithm and the numerical details for carrying out this algorithm on a wide variety of models. The computational methods will be based on the EM algorithm in conjunction with the use of Gauss-Hermite quadrature to approximate integrals in the E-step. Second, this thesis will demonstrate the relative superiority of likelihood-ratio tests and confidence intervals over those based on asymptotic normality of estimates and standard errors, and that likelihood methods may be more robust in these situations than previously thought. The ability to carry out likelihood analysis under a wide range of distributional assumptions, along with the advantages of likelihood ratio inference and the encouraging robustness results make likelihood analysis a practical option worth considering in regression problems with explanatory variable measurement error.
