Statistics Seminars: Nonparametric predictive inference for ordinal data and for future order statistics

Presented by Frank Coolen, Department of Mathematical Sciences, University of Durham

1 March 2010 14:15 in CM221

First results will be presented on NPI for ordinal data, so categorical data with a natural ordering of the categories. The importance of taking the ordered structure of categories into account will be explained and illustrated. Then first results on NPI for the r-th ordered future observation out of m future observations will be presented. Both these scenarios will be illustrated via comparison of two groups of data.
(Note: Research on the first topic was started by Pauline Coolen-Schrijner, and completed by myself and Tahani Maturi. The second topic is recent research by Tahani and me).
