The study of systems which respond disproportionately (nonlinearly) to initial conditions or perturbing stimuli. Nonlinear systems may exhibit "chaos" which is classically characterized as sensitive dependence on initial conditions. Chaotic systems, while distinguished from more ordered periodic systems, are not random. When their behavior over time is appropriately displayed (in "phase space"), constraints are evident which are described by "strange attractors". Phase space representations of chaotic systems, or strange attractors, usually reveal fractal (FRACTALS) self-similarity across time scales. Natural, including biological, systems often display nonlinear dynamics and chaos.

Effect of growth hormone treatment on adult height of children with idiopathic short stature. Genentech Collaborative Group. (1/13525)

BACKGROUND: Short-term administration of growth hormone to children with idiopathic short stature results in increases in growth rate and standard-deviation scores for height. However, the effect of long-term growth hormone therapy on adult height in these children is unknown. METHODS: We studied 121 children with idiopathic short stature, all of whom had an initial height below the third percentile, low growth rates, and maximal stimulated serum concentrations of growth hormone of at least 10 microg per liter. The children were treated with growth hormone (0.3 mg per kilogram of body weight per week) for 2 to 10 years. Eighty of these children have reached adult height, with a bone age of at least 16 years in the boys and at least 14 years in the girls, and pubertal stage 4 or 5. The difference between the predicted adult height before treatment and achieved adult height was compared with the corresponding difference in three untreated normal or short-statured control groups. RESULTS: In the 80 children who have reached adult height, growth hormone treatment increased the mean standard-deviation score for height (number of standard deviations from the mean height for chronologic age) from -2.7 to -1.4. The mean (+/-SD) difference between predicted adult height before treatment and achieved adult height was +5.0+/-5.1 cm for boys and +5.9+/-5.2 cm for girls. The difference between predicted and achieved adult height among treated boys was 9.2 cm greater than the corresponding difference among untreated boys with initial standard-deviation scores of less than -2, and the difference among treated girls was 5.7 cm greater than the difference among untreated girls. CONCLUSION: Long-term administration of growth hormone to children with idiopathic short stature can increase adult height to a level above the predicted adult height and above the adult height of untreated historical control children.  (+info)

Usually, log-linear methods are used to estimate population size, assuming that not all sources of notification are dependent. Where there are categorical covariates, a stratified analysis can be performed. The multinomial logit model has occasionally been used. In this paper, the authors compare log-linear and logit models with and without covariates, and use simulated data to compare estimates from different models. The crude estimate of population size is biased when the sources are not independent. Analyses adjusting for covariates produce less biased estimates. In the absence of covariates, or where all covariates are categorical, the log-linear model and the logit model are equivalent. The log-linear model cannot include continuous variables. To minimize potential bias in estimating incidence, covariates should be included in the design and analysis of multiple-source disease registries.  (+info)

The impact of a multidisciplinary approach on caring for ventilator-dependent patients. (3/13525)

OBJECTIVE: To determine the clinical and financial outcomes of a highly structured multidisciplinary care model for patients in an intensive care unit (ICU) who require prolonged mechanical ventilation. The structured model outcomes (protocol group) are compared with the preprotocol outcomes. DESIGN: Descriptive study with financial analysis. SETTING: A twelve-bed medical-surgical ICU in a non-teaching tertiary referral center in Ogden, Utah. STUDY PARTICIPANTS: During a 54 month period, 469 consecutive intensive care patients requiring mechanical ventilation for longer than 72 hours who did not meet exclusion criteria were studied. INTERVENTIONS: A multidisciplinary team was formed to coordinate the care of ventilator-dependent patients. Care was integrated by daily collaborative bedside rounds, monthly meetings, and implementation of numerous guidelines and protocols. Patients were followed from the time of ICU admission until the day of hospital discharge. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Patients were assigned APACHE II scores on admission to the ICU, and were divided into eight diagnostic categories. ICU length of stay, hospital length of stay, costs, charges, reimbursement, and in-hospital mortality were measured. RESULTS: Mortality in the preprotocol and protocol group, after adjustment for APACHE II scores, remained statistically unchanged (21-23%). After we implemented the new care model, we demonstrated significant decreases in the mean survivor's ICU length of stay (19.8 days to 14.7 days, P= 0.001), hospital length of stay (34.6 days to 25.9 days, P=0.001), charges (US$102500 to US$78500, P=0.001), and costs (US$71900 to US$58000, P=0.001). CONCLUSIONS: Implementation of a structured multidisciplinary care model to care for a heterogeneous population of ventilator-dependent ICU patients was associated with significant reductions in ICU and hospital lengths of stay, charges, and costs. Mortality rates were unaffected.  (+info)

Nonlinear tension summation of different combinations of motor units in the anesthetized cat peroneus longus muscle. (4/13525)

The purpose of this study was to examine the linearity of summation of the forces produced by the stimulation of different combinations of type identified motor units (MUs) in the cat peroneus longus muscle (PL) under isometric conditions. The muscle was fixed at its twitch optimal length, and the tension produced by the single MU was recorded during 24- and 72-Hz stimulation. The summation analysis was first carried out for MUs belonging to the same functional group, and then different combinations of fast fatigable (FF) MUs were added to the nonfatigable slow (S) and fatigue resistant (FR) group. The tension resulting from the combined stimulation of increasing numbers of MUs (measured tension) was evaluated and compared with the linearly predicted value, calculated by adding algebraically the tension produced by the individual MUs assembled in the combination (calculated tension). Tension summation displayed deviations from linearity. S and FR MUs mainly showed marked more than linear summation; FF MUs yielded either more or less than linear summation; and, when the FF units were recruited after the S and FR MUs, less than linear summation always occurred. The magnitude of the nonlinear summation appeared stimulus frequency dependent for the fatigable FF and FI group. The relationship between measured tension and calculated tension for each MU combination was examined, and linear regression lines were fitted to each set of data. The high correlation coefficients and the different slope values for the different MU-type combinations suggested that the nonlinear summation was MU-type specific. The mechanisms of nonlinear summations are discussed by considering the consequences of internal shortening and thus the mechanical interactions among MUs and shifts in muscle fiber length to a more or less advantageous portion of single MU length-tension curves.  (+info)

Short-latency vergence eye movements induced by radial optic flow in humans: dependence on ambient vergence level. (5/13525)

Radial patterns of optic flow, such as those experienced by moving observers who look in the direction of heading, evoke vergence eye movements at short latency. We have investigated the dependence of these responses on the ambient vergence level. Human subjects faced a large tangent screen onto which two identical random-dot patterns were back-projected. A system of crossed polarizers ensured that each eye saw only one of the patterns, with mirror galvanometers to control the horizontal positions of the images and hence the vergence angle between the two eyes. After converging the subject's eyes at one of several distances ranging from 16.7 cm to infinity, both patterns were replaced with new ones (using a system of shutters and two additional projectors) so as to simulate the radial flow associated with a sudden 4% change in viewing distance with the focus of expansion/contraction imaged in or very near both foveas. Radial-flow steps induced transient vergence at latencies of 80-100 ms, expansions causing increases in convergence and contractions the converse. Based on the change in vergence 90-140 ms after the onset of the steps, responses were proportional to the preexisting vergence angle (and hence would be expected to be inversely proportional to viewing distance under normal conditions). We suggest that this property assists the observer who wants to fixate ahead while passing through a visually cluttered area (e.g., a forest) and so wants to avoid making vergence responses to the optic flow created by the nearby objects in the periphery.  (+info)

Survival after breast cancer in Ashkenazi Jewish BRCA1 and BRCA2 mutation carriers. (6/13525)

BACKGROUND: Studies of survival following breast and ovarian cancers in BRCA1 and/or BRCA2 mutation carriers have yielded conflicting results. We undertook an analysis of a community-based study of Ashkenazi Jews to investigate the effect of three founder mutations in BRCA1 and BRCA2 on survival among patients with breast or ovarian cancer. METHODS: We collected blood samples and questionnaire data from 5318 Ashkenazi Jewish volunteers. The blood samples were tested for 185delAG (two nucleotide deletion) and 5382insC (single nucleotide insertion) mutations in BRCA1 and the 6174delT (single nucleotide deletion) mutation in BRCA2. To estimate survival differences in the affected relatives according to their BRCA1 and/or BRCA2 mutation carrier status, we devised and applied a novel extension of the kin-cohort method. RESULTS: Fifty mutation carriers reported that 58 of their first-degree relatives had been diagnosed with breast cancer and 10 with ovarian cancer; 907 noncarriers reported 979 first-degree relatives with breast cancer and 116 with ovarian cancer. Kaplan-Meier estimates of median survival after breast cancer were 16 years (95% confidence interval [CI] = 11-40) in the relatives of carriers and 18 years (95% CI = 15-22) in the relatives of noncarriers, a difference that was not statistically significant (two-sided P = .87). There was also no difference in survival times among the 126 first-degree relatives with ovarian cancer. We found no survival difference between patients with breast or ovarian cancer who were inferred carriers of BRCA1 and/or BRCA2 mutations and noncarriers. CONCLUSIONS: Carriers of BRCA1 and BRCA2 mutations appeared to have neither better nor worse survival prognosis.  (+info)

Long-term results of GH therapy in GH-deficient children treated before 1 year of age. (7/13525)

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the long-term effects of GH therapy in early diagnosed GH-deficient patients treated before 1 year of age. STUDY DESIGN: We studied all 59 patients (33 males) recorded by Association France-Hypophyse and treated with GH (0.50+/-0.15 IU/kg (S.D.) per week) before 1 year of age. Clinical presentation and growth parameters under GH treatment were analyzed. RESULTS: Neonatal manifestations of hypopituitarism were frequent: hypoglycemia (n=50), jaundice (n=25) and micropenis (n=17/33). Although birth length was moderately reduced (-0.9+/-1.4), growth retardation at diagnosis (5.8+/-3.8 months) was severe (-3.5+/-1.9 standard deviation scores (SDS)). Fifty patients (85%) had thyrotropin and/or corticotropin deficiency. After a mean duration of GH therapy of 8.0+/-3.6 years, change in height SDS was +3.11+/-2.06 S.D., exceeding 4 SDS in 19 patients. Only 9 patients (15%) did not reach a height of -2 S.D. for chronological age and 20 patients (34%) exceeded their target height. Pretreatment height SDS was independently associated with total catch-up growth. CONCLUSION: Conventional doses of GH allow normalization of height in patients with early GH deficiency and treatment.  (+info)

Changes in body composition and leptin levels during growth hormone (GH) treatment in short children with various GH secretory capacities. (8/13525)

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to follow changes in body composition, estimated by dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA), in relation to changes in leptin during the first year of GH therapy in order to test the hypothesis that leptin is a metabolic signal involved in the regulation of GH secretion in children. DESIGN AND METHODS: In total, 33 prepubertal children were investigated. Their mean (S.D.) chronological age at the start of GH treatment was 11.5 (1.6) years, and their mean height was -2.33 (0.38) S.D. scores (SDS). GH was administered subcutaneously at a daily dose of 0.1 (n=26) or 0.2 (n=7) IU/kg body weight. Ten children were in the Swedish National Registry for children with GH deficiency, and twenty-three children were involved in trials of GH treatment for idiopathic short stature. Spontaneous 24-h GH secretion was studied in 32 of the children. In the 24-h GH profiles, the maximum level of GH was determined and the secretion rate estimated by deconvolution analysis (GHt). Serum leptin levels were measured at the start of GH treatment and after 10 and 30 days and 3, 6 and 12 months of treatment. Body composition measurements, by DXA, were performed at baseline and 12 months after the onset of GH treatment. RESULTS: After 12 months of GH treatment, mean height increased from -2.33 to -1.73 SDS and total body fat decreased significantly by 3.0 (3.3)%. Serum leptin levels were decreased significantly at all time points studied compared with baseline. There was a significant correlation between the change in total body fat and the change in serum leptin levels during the 12 months of GH treatment, whereas the leptin concentration per unit fat mass did not change. In a multiple stepwise linear regression analysis with 12 month change in leptin levels as the dependent variable, the percentage change in fat over 12 months, the baseline fat mass (%) of body mass and GHt accounted for 24.0%, 11.5% and 12.2% of the variability respectively. CONCLUSIONS: There are significant correlations between changes in leptin and fat and endogenous GH secretion in short children with various GH secretory capacities. Leptin may be the messenger by which the adipose tissue affects hypothalamic regulation of GH secretion.  (+info)

TY - JOUR. T1 - Inference on variance components near boundary in linear mixed effect models. AU - Sakamoto, Wataru. PY - 2019/1/1. Y1 - 2019/1/1. N2 - In making inference on variance components in linear mixed effect models, variance component parameters may be located on some boundary of a constrained parameter space, and hence usual asymptotic theory on parameter estimation, test statistics, and information criteria may not hold. We illustrate such boundary issues on variance components, and introduce some methodologies and properties along with literature. The maximum likelihood estimator of the variance parameter vector near some boundary distributes asymptotically as a projection of a normal random vector onto the boundary. The null distribution of the likelihood ratio test statistic is complicated, and hence it has been studied both from asymptotic and numerical aspects. Moreover, a boundary issue in model selection using information criteria is also essential and is closely related to ...

Thanks!Hi everyone, Ive been running Multivariate linear regression models and was wondering if there was a way to extract the full equation used by Spotfire to obtain its predicted
In the single predictor case of linear regression, the standardized slope has the same value as the correlation coefficient. The advantage of the linear regression is that the relationship can be described in such a way that you can predict (based on the relationship between the two variables) the score on the predicted variable given any particular value of the predictor variable. In particular one piece of information a linear regression gives you that a correlation does not is the intercept, the value on the predicted variable when the predictor is 0.. In short - they produce identical results computationally, but there are more elements which are capable of interpretation in the simple linear regression. If you are interested in simply characterizing the magnitude of the relationship between two variables, use correlation - if you are interested in predicting or explaining your results in terms of particular values you probably want regression.. ...

Forecasting, in time series is an important in planning and making assumptions about future events using different statistical methods, and depends on estimating the value of a variable at a future date. The study reviewed the missing views in the time series (a model without loss of observations and three models was assumed to be lost in the views of the dependent variable in different locations in the series) ,After a simple linear regression of the four models of the analysis show that the series without losing it show coherent and clear in their dealings and morally within the statistical acceptable levels, and the loss of view where what is its position within the series and it show obvious effect on the estimated value of any expected value is much greater than the value of truth The Akaike test was used to compare the models and the test results indicated the models superiority without loss. and has recommended the researcher on the need to use all the views in the dependent variable ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Fiducial generalized p-values for testing zero-variance components in linear mixed-effects models. AU - Li, Xinmin. AU - Su, Haiyan. AU - Liang, Hua. PY - 2018/7/1. Y1 - 2018/7/1. N2 - Linear mixed-effects models are widely used in analysis of longitudinal data. However, testing for zero-variance components of random effects has not been well resolved in statistical literature, although some likelihood-based procedures have been proposed and studied. In this article, we propose a generalized p-value based method in coupling with fiducial inference to tackle this problem. The proposed method is also applied to test linearity of the nonparametric functions in additive models. We provide theoretical justifications and develop an implementation algorithm for the proposed method. We evaluate its finite-sample performance and compare it with that of the restricted likelihood ratio test via simulation experiments. We illustrate the proposed approach using an application from a ...

p,General slowing (GS) theories are often tested by meta-analysis that model mean latencies of older adults as a function of mean latencies of younger adults. Ordinary least squares (OLS) regression is inappropriate for this purpose because it fails to account for the nested structure of multitask response time (RT) data. Hierarchical linear models (HLM) are an alternative method for analyzing such data. OLS analysis of data from 21 studies that used iterative cognitive tasks supported GS; however, HLM analysis demonstrated significant variance in slowing across experimental tasks and a process-specific effect by showing less slowing for memory scanning than for visual-search and mental-rotation tasks. The authors conclude that HLM is more suitable than OLS methods for meta-analyses of RT data and for testing GS theories.,/p,. ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Specifications of Models for Cross-Classified Counts. T2 - Comparisons of the Log-Linear Models and Marginal Models Perspectives. AU - Becker, Mark P.. AU - Perkins, Susan. AU - Yang, Ilsoon. PY - 1998/5. Y1 - 1998/5. N2 - Log-linear models are useful for analyzing cross-classifications of counts arising in sociology, but it has been argued that in some cases, an alternative approach for formulating models - one based on simultaneously modeling univariate marginal logits and marginal associations - can lead to models that are more directly relevant for addressing the kinds of questions arising in those cases. In this article, the authors explore some of the similarities and differences between the log-linear models approach to modeling categorical data and a marginal modeling approach. It has been noted in past literature that the model of statistical independence is conveniently represented within both approaches to specifying models for cross-classifications of counts. The ...

We compared four estimation methods including a logistic regression method, a log-time regression method, a linear regression method and a newly proposed two-stage method through a Monte-Carlo simulation study in small sample sizes due to the experimental restrictions. The logistic regression method provides almost unbiased estimates, although the confidence interval for ET50 is occasionally not obtained. The log-time regression method and the linear regression method provide positive biased estimates, although the confidence interval for ET50 is obtained in any case. The two-stage method is reasonable, in which the log-time regression method is adopted only if the logistic regression method cannot construct a confidence interval for ET50 ...

In this study the model of higher dimensional log-linear model is applied to four categorical variables in Education. The data are collected from the alumni data of University of Lampung, from 2010 to 2013 and about 9060 alumni involved. In this study, the variables of interest are: Length of Study with three categories (,4.5 years; 4.5- 5.5 years; and ,5.5 years), Field of Study with three categories (Sciences, Social Sciences, and Education), Sex with two categories (Male, and Female), GPA in scale 0 to 4 with three categories ( ,3.0, 3.0-3.5, and ,3.5). In this study the aims are going to find the best model to explain the relationship among the factors. By using hierarchical Log-linear Model Analysis and backward method it was found that the best model for the data with three variables interactions in the model are: Length of Study*SEX*GPA, Length of Study*Sciences*GPA, and Sex*Sciences*GPA.. ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Log-linear modeling. AU - von Eye, Alexander. AU - Mun, Eun-Young. AU - Mair, Patrick. PY - 2012/3/1. Y1 - 2012/3/1. N2 - This article describes log-linear models as special cases of generalized linear models. Specifically, log-linear models use a logarithmic link function. Log-linear models are used to examine joint distributions of categorical variables, dependency relations, and association patterns. Three types of log-linear models are discussed, hierarchical models, nonhierarchical models, and nonstandard models. Emphasis is placed on parameter interpretation. It is demonstrated that parameters are best interpretable when they represent the effects specified in the design matrix of the model. Parameter interpretation is illustrated first for a standard hierarchical model, and then for a nonstandard model that includes structural zeros. In a data example, the relationships among race of defendant, race of victim, and death penalty sentence are examined using a log-linear ...
The use of Linear Mixed-effects Models (LMMs) is set to dominate statistical analyses in psychological science and may become the default approach to analyzing quantitative data. The rapid growth in adoption of LMMs has been matched by a proliferation of differences in practice. Unless this diversity is recognized, and checked, the field shall reap enormous difficulties in the future when attempts are made to consolidate or synthesize research findings. Here we examine this diversity using two methods - a survey of researchers (n=163) and a quasi-systematic review of papers using LMMs (n=400). The survey reveals substantive concerns among psychologists using or planning to use LMMs and an absence of agreed standards. The review of papers complements the survey, showing variation in how the models are built, how effects are evaluated and, most worryingly, how models are reported. Using these data as our departure point, we present a set of best practice guidance, focusing on the reporting of ...

Simple linear regression having Gaussian errors is a very nice attribute that does not generalize to generalized linear models. In generalized linear models, the response follows some given distribution given the mean. Linear regression follows this pattern; if we have. $y_i = \beta_0 + \beta_1 x_i + \epsilon_i$. with $\epsilon_i \sim N(0, \sigma)$. then we also have $y_i \sim N(\beta_0 + \beta_1 x_i, \sigma)$. Okay, so the response follows the given distribution for generalized linear models, but for linear regression we also have that the residuals follow a Gaussian distribution. Why is it emphasized that the residuals are normal when thats not the generalized rule? Well, because its the much more useful rule. The nice thing about thinking about normality of the residuals is this is much easier to examine. If we subtract out the estimated means, all the residuals should have roughly the same variance and roughly the same mean (0) and will be roughly normally distributed (note: I say ...
As an important modelling strategy Linear Models is concerned with investigating whether, and how, one or more so-called explanatory variables, such as age, sex, blood pressure, etc., influence a response variable, such as a patient's diagnosis, by taking random variations of data into account. In Linear Models, linear regression technique and Normal distribution are used to explore the possible linear relation between a continuous response and one or more explanatory variables. In this course unit we depart from linearity and normality, the very strict limitation in Linear Models. We study the extension of linearity to non-linearity and normality to a commonly encountered distribution family, called the exponential family of distributions. This extension forms Generalized Linear Models (GLM). The GLM, on the one hand, unifies linear and non-linear models in terms of statistical modelling. On the other hand, it can be used to analyze discrete data, including binary, binomial, counted and ...
Generalized Linear Models (GLM) include and extend the class of linear models described in Linear Regression.. Linear models make a set of restrictive assumptions, most importantly, that the target (dependent variable y) is normally distributed conditioned on the value of predictors with a constant variance regardless of the predicted response value. The advantage of linear models and their restrictions include computational simplicity, an interpretable model form, and the ability to compute certain diagnostic information about the quality of the fit.. Generalized linear models relax these restrictions, which are often violated in practice. For example, binary (yes/no or 0/1) responses do not have same variance across classes. Furthermore, the sum of terms in a linear model typically can have very large ranges encompassing very negative and very positive values. For the binary response example, we would like the response to be a probability in the range [0,1].. Generalized linear models ...
In this module we discuss how to analyse dependent data, that is, data for which the assumption of independence needed in Linear Models is violated. So: Do you have a nested experimental set-up? Like measurements on large plots, but also on smaller plots within the larger plots? Do you have repeated measurements? Like measurements on height of the same plant over time? Or weight of the same animal over time? Do you have pseudo-replication? Like measuring 3 plants from the same pot? In this sort of situations it is not reasonable to use ordinary ANOVA or regression to analyse your data. These methods are likely too optimistic, and you will get erroneous significant results. And your paper will be returned for, hopefully, a major revision! With mixed linear models a more appropriate model, allowing for dependence between observations, can be specified, which will lead to more reasonable conclusions ...

In this paper, an alternative estimation approach is proposed to fit linear mixed effects models where the random effects follow a finite mixture of normal distributions. This heterogeneity linear mixed model is an interesting tool since it relaxes the classical normality assumption and is also perfectly suitable for classification purposes, based on longitudinal profiles. Instead of fitting directly the heterogeneity linear mixed model, we propose to fit an equivalent mixture of linear mixed models under some restrictions which is computationally simpler. Unlike the former model, the latter can be maximized analytically using an EM-algorithm and the obtained parameter estimates can be easily used to compute the parameter estimates of interest.
If you have a question about this talk, please contact Mustapha Amrani.. Design and Analysis of Experiments. Mixed-effects models are defined by the distributions of two vector-valued random variables, an n-dimensional response vector, Y and an unobserved q-dimensional random-effects vector, B. The mean of the conditional distribution, Y,B=b, depends on a linear predictor expression of the form X+Zb where is a p-dimensional fixed-effects parameter vector and the fixed and known model matrices, X and Z, are of the appropriate dimension. For linear mixed-effects models the conditional mean is the linear predictor; for generalized linear mixed-effects models the conditional mean is the value of an inverse link function applied to the linear predictor and for a nonlinear mixed-effects model the conditional mean is the result of applying a nonlinear model function for which the parameter vector is derived from the linear predictor. We describe the formulation of these mixed-effects models and provide ...

A spatial Bayesian hierarchical model is proposed to analyze functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) data Typical fMRI experiments generate massive datasets with complex spatial and temporal structures Several studies have found that the spatialdependence not only appears in signal changes but also in temporal correlations among voxels; however current statistical approaches ignore the spatial dependence of temporal correlations to gain computational efficiency We incorporated the spatial random effects model to simultaneously model spatial dependence arising from both signal changes and temporal correlations Through simulation studies to demonstrate that the proposed approach increases the accuracy of the detection of brain activities while keeping computationally feasible Finally we apply a real event-related fMRI data to further illustrate the usefulness of the proposed model ...
The results were only included in the analysis if blood samples taken at each time point during the 150-min MMTT were available to allow calculation of peak and AUC CP. As CP values were not normally distributed, nonparametric analysis was used. A subanalysis was performed in patients who had complete MMTT data available over 120 min.. Spearmans rank correlation coefficient was used to assess the association between AUC CP and 90CP or FCP at each diabetes duration, with the mean values being used when assessing the association in the whole cohort. Linear regression equations were determined for the association between AUC CP and peak CP, and cutoffs in AUC equivalent to peak CP ≥0.2 nmol/L were derived using this equation. Sensitivity and specificity for significant endogenous insulin secretion (defined by the derived AUC CP) and for peak insulin secretion (peak CP ≥0.2 nmol/L) were assessed for 90 ≥0.2 nmol/L and FCP ≥0.1 nmol/L, according to cutoffs described previously (4,12)..

The hierarchical linear model (HLM) provides a conceptual framework and a flexible set of analytic tools to study a variety of social, political, and developmental processes. One set of applications focuses on data in which persons are clustered within social contexts, such as couples, families, schools, neighborhoods, or organizations. Interest may center on the magnitude of social contextual effects on personal outcomes, the context-specificity of relationships between person background and person outcomes, or interactions between measurable features of social context and personal background. A second set of applications concerns individual growth or change over time, where time series data are clustered within persons. Interest focuses on the shape of mean growth, the variability in individual growth curves around the mean growth curve, and person-level characteristics that predict differences in growth curves. A third set of applications involves a combination of both of the first two types: ...

We analyzed data for the 12-month period after renal biopsy was done in 130 patients with systemic lupus erythematosus to examine whether renal biopsy provides useful information on the nephritis of systemic lupus erythematosus beyond that clinically available. A stepwise linear regression analysis was used to construct a linear before biopsy model that predicted the change in renal function 12 months after biopsy. The model included serum creatinine, patient age, 24-hour urine protein, a laboratory index of renal activity, antibodies to DNA, urinalysis protein, change in inverse creatinine from 6 weeks before biopsy, and urine light chain protein, and had a squared multiple correlation coefficient (R2) of 0.246. Four prospectively chosen renal biopsy variables (glomerular cell counts, percent of sclerotic glomeruli, percent of glomeruli with crescents, and interstitial fibrosis) resulted in a 0.079 improvement in R2 (p , 0.012). Both the percent glomerular sclerosis (p , 0.0032) and ...
A multiple linear regression technique was used to evaluate and correct the matrix interferences in the determination of As and Pb concentrations in fly ashes by inductively coupled plasma optical emission spectrometry. The direct determination of As and Pb in SRM 1633b by ICP-OES failed to obtain the certified concentrations, except in a couple of cases. However, it proved possible to use the multiple linear regression (MLR) technique to correct the determined concentrations to a satisfactory level. This method of correction is based on the multiple regression line obtained from the analysis of 19 synthetic mixtures of matrix and analyte elements (Al, As, Ca, Fe, Pb, and Si) at five concentration levels. The matrix interferences in the determination of As were caused by Al, Pb, and Ca whereas the matrix interferences in the determination of Pb were caused by Al and Fe. The most suitable parameters for the determination of As and Pb were a plasma power of 1500 W and a nebulizer flow of 0.5 or ...

Objective: The insula is involved in general and social cognition, in particular emotion regulation. Aim of this study is to investigate whether insula volume is associated with Intelligence Quotient (IQ) and emotional processing in schizophrenia patients versus healthy controls (HC). Methods: Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) brain scans, IQ and emotional processing tests (Benton Facial Recognition Test [BFRT], Degraded Facial Affect Recognition Task [DFAR], Emotional Mentalizing Task [EMT]) were administered in 246 subjects (133 schizophrenia patients and 113 controls). First order linear regression analyses were performed with group as independent variable and IQ/emotional processing test scores as dependent variables. Second order stepwise linear regression analyses were performed with IQ/emotional processing test scores as independent variables (as well as intracranial volumes, age, gender and cannabis abuse) and right/left insula volumes as dependent ones. A final mediation analysis (Sobel ...
It is often the case that when you have data, you would like to create a model of that data for predictive purposes using a multiple linear regression model. In such endeavor, the main challenge is to find the weights. There are many approaches for estimating the weights. In this blog, I am using the method of…
Although leg spring stiffness represents active muscular recruitment of the lower extremity during dynamic tasks such as hopping and running, the joint-specific characteristics comprising the damping portion of this measure, leg impedance, are uncertain. The purpose of this investigation was to assess the relationship between leg impedance and energy absorption at the ankle, knee, and hip during early (impact) and late (stabilization) phases of landing. Twenty highly trained female dancers (age = 20.3 ± 1.4 years, height = 163.7 ± 6.0 cm, mass = 62.1 ± 8.1 kg) were instrumented for biomechanical analysis. Subjects performed three sets of double-leg landings from under preferred, stiff, and soft landing conditions. A stepwise linear regression analysis revealed that ankle and knee energy absorption at impact, and knee and hip energy absorption during the stabilization phases of landing explained 75.5% of the variance in leg impedance. The primary predictor of leg impedance was knee energy ...
To better understand the impact of land use on stream nutrient export, a synoptic sampling of 57 sub-basins within the Willamette River basin was conducted during winter baseflow conditions (February 2009). I assessed whether stream dissolved organic carbon (DOC), NO₃⁻ and Cl⁻ and specific ultra-violet absorbance (SUVA) values were correlated with individual watershed land use variables: percent urban, agriculture, and forest. Simple linear regression analysis indicated that stream DOC, NO₃⁻ and Cl⁻ increased significantly with increasing percent agriculture and urban area in sampled watersheds, and decreased significantly with increasing percent forest. Stream order and watershed area were not significantly related to any stream chemistry variables. Simple linear regression analysis indicated that SUVA, a measure of the aromaticity of DOC, decreased significantly with increasing percent urban area in catchments, but was not significantly related to percent agriculture or urban. ...
Children from The Western Australian Pregnancy Cohort (Raine; n = 1,506) Study were genotyped at 17 genetic loci shown to be associated with childhood obesity (FTO, MC4R, TMEM18, GNPDA2, KCTD15, NEGR1, BDNF, ETV5, SEC16B, LYPLAL1, TFAP2B, MTCH2, BCDIN3D, NRXN3, SH2B1, MRSA) and an obesity-risk-allele-score was calculated as the total number of risk alleles possessed by each individual. To determine the statistical method that fits these data and has the ability to detect genetic differences in BMI growth profile, four methods were investigated: linear mixed effects model, linear mixed effects model with skew-t random errors, semi-parametric linear mixed models and a non-linear mixed effects model. Of the four methods, the semi-parametric linear mixed model method was the most efficient for modelling childhood growth to detect modest genetic effects in this cohort. Using this method, three of the 17 loci were significantly associated with BMI intercept or trajectory in females and four in ...
3. Collecting and organizing the data: collecting data is expensive. In our case heavier labor regulation may be associated with lower labor force participation can be analyzed with data already collected by the World Bank and organized by Juan Botero et al (2004). In the case you do not have data you will need to design a questionnaire and get out to ask those question to at least 100 randomly chosen individuals. However, say you want to know about the relation between the more you learn, he more you earn, what would you ask to several random people? Well, you would ask at least two questions: what is your annual/monthly income? And, what level of education do you have, PhD, Masters, Undergraduate, High School? You will record every single answer perhaps into a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet. Do not forget to label the columns and what they mean. Those two columns which result from your survey are your variables (e.g. X and Y). Going back to our case heavier labor regulation may be associated ...

Hydrolytic equilibria of Tm (III) in KOH solutions were studied at 25°C. A spectrophotometry with m-cresol purple and 2-naphthol as pH indicators was used at an ionic strength of not more than 0.0005. The results indicate that in freshly prepared solutions at pH ranging between 6 and 10 Tm is present as , , and . The stepwise stability constants of hydroxide complexes calculated at zero ionic strength were obtained as coefficient of linear regression equations from the graph of optical densities of the indicators in Tm solutions at varying pH.

The reliability of diagnoses made in accident and emergency departments in epidemiological studies has been questioned.12 21 In children, especially those under the age of 2 years, the clinical distinction between conditions such as atopic and non-atopic asthma, wheezy bronchitis, and bronchiolitis may be impossible to make with certainty. Also at issue is the degree to which attendance rates in accident and emergency departments reflect the prevalence of acute asthma in the community as a whole. At the Hillingdon hospital over 60% of childhood wheezy episodes are self referrals, a figure that remains relatively constant throughout the year.. The application of non-linear Poisson regression models may be the reason that our study showed significant events not previously observed. Some studies have used linear regression models; others have assumed that data conformed to a normal distribution. The models used in our study showed that sulphur dioxide has a positive log-linear association with the ...
Abstract: We empirically show that Bayesian inference can be inconsistent under misspecification in simple linear regression problems, both in a model averaging/selection and in a Bayesian ridge regression setting. We use the standard linear model, which assumes homoskedasticity, whereas the data are heteroskedastic, and observe that the posterior puts its mass on ever more high-dimensional models as the sample size increases. To remedy the problem, we equip the likelihood in Bayes theorem with an exponent called the learning rate, and we propose the Safe Bayesian method to learn the learning rate from the data. SafeBayes tends to select small learning rates as soon the standard posterior is not `cumulatively concentrated, and its results on our data are quite encouraging ...
A version of the nonparametric bootstrap, which resamples the entire subjects from original data, called the case bootstrap, has been increasingly used for estimating uncertainty of parameters in mixed-effects models. It is usually applied to obtain more robust estimates of the parameters and more realistic confidence intervals (CIs). Alternative bootstrap methods, such as residual bootstrap and parametric bootstrap that resample both random effects and residuals, have been proposed to better take into account the hierarchical structure of multi-level and longitudinal data. However, few studies have been performed to compare these different approaches. In this study, we used simulation to evaluate bootstrap methods proposed for linear mixed-effect models. We also compared the results obtained by maximum likelihood (ML) and restricted maximum likelihood (REML). Our simulation studies evidenced the good performance of the case bootstrap as well as the bootstraps of both random effects and residuals. On
Coefficients. The next section in the model output talks about the coefficients of the model. Theoretically, in simple linear regression, the coefficients are two unknown constants that represent the intercept and slope terms in the linear model. If we wanted to predict the Distance required for a car to stop given its speed, we would get a training set and produce estimates of the coefficients to then use it in the model formula. Ultimately, the analyst wants to find an intercept and a slope such that the resulting fitted line is as close as possible to the 50 data points in our data set.. Coefficient - Estimate. The coefficient Estimate contains two rows; the first one is the intercept. The intercept, in our example, is essentially the expected value of the distance required for a car to stop when we consider the average speed of all cars in the dataset. In other words, it takes an average car in our dataset 42.98 feet to come to a stop. The second row in the Coefficients is the slope, or in ...

ecosystem functioning attempt to separate the effects of species richness (the number of species) from those of species identity. We introduce an experimental design that ensures that each species is selected the same number of times at each level of species richness. In combination with a linear model analysis, this approach is able to unambiguously partition the variance due to different species identities and the variance due to nonlinear species richness, a proxy measure for interactions among species. Our design and analysis provide several advantages over methods that are currently used. First, the linear model method has the potential to directly estimate the role of various ecological mechanisms (e.g., competition, facilitation) rather than the consequences of those mechanisms (e.g., the complementarity effect). Second, unlike other methods that are currently used, this one is able to estimate the impact of diversity when the contribution of individual species in a mixture is unknown. ...

Modern research often involves the analysis of data for more than one variable and in this regard, linear models are the most widely used class of models. Linear models relate a response variable to one or more explanatory variables enabling researchers to answer important research questions and make predictions about how variables will respond. These methods are used in many areas including biological science, economics, engineering, medical science and psychological science. Topics covered in this subject include simple and multiple linear regression, response and explanatory variable transformations, ANOVA and ANCOVA, as well as more modern methodologies such as generalized linear models and linear mixed effects models. This subject has a strong emphasis on preparing students for future careers in statistics. This subject addresses La Trobes Innovation and Entrepreneurship Essential which entails developing the ability to tackle problems creatively, generating new ideas, taking calculated ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Asymptotic theory in fixed effects panel data seemingly unrelated partially linear regression models. AU - You, Jinhong. AU - Zhou, Xian. PY - 2014/4. Y1 - 2014/4. N2 - This paper deals with statistical inference for the fixed effects panel data seemingly unrelated partially linear regression model. The model naturally extends the traditional fixed effects panel data regression model to allow for semiparametric effects. Multiple regression equations are permitted, and the model includes the aggregated partially linear model as a special case. A weighted profile least squares estimator for the parametric components is proposed and shown to be asymptotically more efficient than those neglecting the contemporaneous correlation. Furthermore, a weighted two-stage estimator for the nonparametric components is also devised and shown to be asymptotically more efficient than those based on individual regression equations. The asymptotic normality is established for estimators of both ...
It is well known that regression analyses involving compositional data need special attention because the data are not of full rank. For a regression analysis where both the dependent and independent variable are components we propose a transformation of the components emphasizing their role as dependent and independent variables. A simple linear regression can be performed on the transformed components. The regression line can be depicted in a ternary diagram facilitating the interpretation of the analysis in terms of components. An exemple with time-budgets illustrates the method and the graphical features ...
26/06/2018 · Regression is a statistical tool used to understand and quantify the relation between two or more variables. Regressions range from simple models … Predicting the Future. One of the primary advantages of regression-based forecasting techniques is that they use research and analysis to predict what is likely to happen in the next quarter, year.

The statistical application considered here arose in epigenomics, linking the DNA methylation proportions measured at specific genomic sites to characteristics such as phenotype or birth order. It was found that the distribution of errors in the proportions of chemical modification (methylation) on DNA, measured at CpG sites, may be successfully modelled by a Laplace distribution which is perturbed by a Hermite polynomial. We use a linear model with such a response function. Hence, the response function is known, or assumed well estimated, but fails to be differentiable in the classical sense due to the modulus function. Our problem was to estimate coefficients for the linear model and the corresponding covariance matrix and to compare models with varying numbers of coefficients. The linear model coefficients may be found using the (derivative-free) simplex method, as in quantile regression. However, this theory does not yield a simple expression for the covariance matrix of the coefficients of ...

This two-day advanced multivariate statistics course provides an introduction to applied analyses of multilevel models. Students will learn how to use multilevel models for analyzing clustered data (e.g., persons nested in groups) and longitudinal data, such as flexible strategies for modeling change and individual differences in change. Multilevel models are known by many synonyms (hierarchical linear models, general linear mixed models). The defining feature of these models is their capacity to provide quantification and prediction of random variance due to multiple sampling dimensions (across occasions, persons, or groups). Multilevel models are useful in analyzing clustered data (e.g., persons nested in groups), in which one wishes to examine predictors pertaining to individuals or to groups. Multilevel models also offer many advantages for analyzing longitudinal data, such as flexible strategies for modeling change and individual differences in change, the possibility of examining time-invariant
Recall that in a linear regression model, the object is to model the expected value of a continuous variable, \(Y\), as a linear function of the predictor, \(\eta = X\beta\). The model structure is thus: \(E(Y) = X\beta + e\), where \(e\) refers to the residual error term. The linear regression model assumes that \(Y\) is continous and comes from a normal distribution, that \(e\) is normally distributed and that the relationship between the linear predictor \(\eta\) and the expected outcome \(E(Y)\) is strictly linear. However, these assumptions are easily violated in many real world data examples, such as those with binary or proportional outcome variables and those with non-linear relationships between the predictors and the outcome variable. In these scenarios where linear regression models are clearly inappropriate, generalised linear models (GLM) are needed.. The GLM is the genearlised version of linear regression that allows for deviations from the assumptions underlying linear regression. ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Moment-based method for random effects selection in linear mixed models. AU - Ahn, Mihye. AU - Zhang, Hao Helen. AU - Lu, Wenbin. PY - 2012/10/1. Y1 - 2012/10/1. N2 - The selection of random effects in linear mixed models is an important yet challenging problem in practice. We propose a robust and unified framework for automatically selecting random effects and estimating covariance components in linear mixed models. A moment-based loss function is first constructed for estimating the covariance matrix of random effects. Two types of shrinkage penalties, a hard thresholding operator and a new sandwich-type soft-thresholding penalty, are then imposed for sparse estimation and random effects selection. Compared with existing approaches, the new procedure does not require any distributional assumption on the random effects and error terms. We establish the asymptotic properties of the resulting estimator in terms of its consistency in both random effects selection and variance ...
Consider the linear regression model, $$ y_i=f_i(\boldsymbol{x},\boldsymbol{\beta})+\varepsilon_i, $$ where $y_i$ is the response or the dependent variable at the $i$th case, $i=1,\cdots, N$ and the predictor or the independent variable is the $\boldsymbol{x}$ term defined in the mean function $f_i(\boldsymbol{x},\boldsymbol{\beta})$. For simplicity, consider the following simple linear regression (SLR) model, $$ y_i=\beta_0+\beta_1x_i+\varepsilon_i. $$ To obtain the (best) estimate of $\beta_0$ and $\beta_1$, we solve for the least residual sum of squares (RSS) given by, $$ S=\sum_{i=1}^{n}\varepsilon_i^2=\sum_{i=1}^{n}(y_i-\beta_0-\beta_1x_i)^2. $$ Now suppose we want to fit the model to the following data, Average Heights and Weights for American Women, where weight is the response and height is the predictor. The data is available in R by default. ...
Please note that the result of this algorithm may depend on the number of threads used. Different settings may lead to slightly different outputs. Generalized linear models (GLMs) are an extension of traditional linear models. This algorithm fits generalized linear models to the data by maximizing the log-likelihood. The elastic net penalty can be used for parameter regularization. The model fitting computation is parallel, extremely fast, and scales extremely well for models with a limited number of predictors with non-zero coefficients. The operator starts a 1-node local H2O cluster and runs the algorithm on it. Although it uses one node, the execution is parallel. You can set the level of parallelism by changing the Settings/Preferences/General/Number of threads setting. By default it uses the recommended number of threads for the system. Only one instance of the cluster is started and it remains running until you close RapidMiner Studio.. Please note that below version 7.6, a threshold value ...
The indicators, except for those relating to a specific age and gender, were calculated taking the total number of adults interviewed as denominator.. We calculated time series analyses, and the first methodology stage consisted of building the time series of each indicator (Zt) using secondary data. Estimates of risk and protective factors were extracted from Vigitel databases in each of the years under study - from 2008 to 2015 - on the population who reported having health insurance. Approximately 30 thousand adults were interviewed each year, totaling about 240 thousand interviews between 2008 and 2015. The last year of the series, 2015, had 30,549 interviews.. The second stage corresponded to time series (Zt) modeling to identify if the trend was significant. In this study, we used the simple linear regression model, given by the expression: [Z t = α + β* t + a t ], with t as the time prevalence value - ranging from 2008 to 2015 -, α as the intercept, β as the angular coefficient, also ...
In statistics, the coefficient of determination, denoted R2 or r2 and pronounced R squared, is the proportion of the variance in the dependent variable that is predictable from the independent variable(s). It is a statistic used in the context of statistical models whose main purpose is either the prediction of future outcomes or the testing of hypotheses, on the basis of other related information. It provides a measure of how well observed outcomes are replicated by the model, based on the proportion of total variation of outcomes explained by the model.[1][2][3]. There are several definitions of R2 that are only sometimes equivalent. One class of such cases includes that of simple linear regression where r2 is used instead of R2. When an intercept is included, then r2 is simply the square of the sample correlation coefficient (i.e., r) between the observed outcomes and the observed predictor values.[4] If additional regressors are included, R2 is the square of the coefficient of multiple ...

5. The linear predictors are taken to be polynomials in a single predictor variable , so for instance, with a quadratic linear predictor, the model is . This is the case of perfect collinearity in the regression model, which we ruled out when we first proposed the linear regression model with Assumption 2. I can also assist with your honours, masters or PhD thesis. Arguments formula. Some of the terminology sive censoring with binomial removals, i, and then we get the progressive censoring with binomial removals samples from GP distribution by the Monte- Carlo method. X is an n -by- p matrix of p predictors at each of n observations. The class of generalized linear models is an extension of traditional linear models that allows the mean of a dependent variable to depend on a linear predictor through a nonlinear link function and allows the probability distribution of the response to be any member of an exponential family of distributions. m. In statistics, a regression model is linear when all ...
The linear model connector is quite different - its a proof of concept (like the New York song: if you can make it here, you can make it anywhere). The structure of the output data from a linear model procedure is nuanced. This means that if I can write a fully functional and correct syntax connector for the linear model (which I have already done in the current software version), then it is very plausible to do so for any statistical procedure: mixed model, factor analysis, survival analysis, etc ...
The sender is more prominent in linear model of communication. It also displays no feedback from the receiver. Empty cells- Unavailable messages or sources; Vertical layers- Set of similar messages; Cells- Messages and sources; Advantages of the Beckers Mosaic Model of Communication • The mosaic model of communication shows the complexity of communication and says communication is dynamic. In the linear model of communication, messages come from the source, which is individual or corporation, and then messages are encoded by using some symbolic manners, which are transformed by different channels, after that, the receiver decodes the message by interpreting all those symbols in order to understand them, finally , receiver get the messages (Fill,2005). Sending a message from one person to the other can take on a huge variety of forms. The greatest advantage of the linear model of communication is that the message is clear and unambiguous, leaving the audience with little or no... Our experts ...

Students will be required to perform analyses using a calculator and will also be required to conduct analyses using statistical software (SPSS). It is expected that students ...
Several works have reported on the reconstruction of 2D/3D limb kinematics from low-frequency EEG signals using linear regression models based on positive correlation values between the recorded and the reconstructed trajectories. This paper describes the mathematical properties of the linear model and the correlation evaluation metric that may lead to a misinterpretation of the results of this type of decoders. Firstly, the use of a linear regression model to adjust the two temporal signals (EEG and velocity profiles) implies that the relevant component of the signal used for decoding (EEG) has to be in the same frequency range as the signal to be decoded (velocity profiles). Secondly, the use of a correlation to evaluate the fitting of two trajectories could lead to overly-optimistic results as this metric is invariant to scale. Also, the correlation has a non-linear nature that leads to higher values for sinus/cosinus-like signals at low frequencies. Analysis of these properties on the reconstruction
