17 January 2014

Dr Ioannis Kosmidis' work on models for ordinal responses has appeared in the Journal of the Royal Statistical Society: Series B (Statistical Methodology). The article is titled "Improved estimation in cumulative link models" and concerns new estimation methods which produce estimators that are always finite, have smaller bias and mean squared error than the traditional maximum likelihood estimators, and also respect the properties that make cumulative link models a standard choice for the analysis of ordinal data that has influenced practice.
