  • Mean Estimation of a Sensitive Variable under Nonresponse Using
           Three-Stage RRT Model in Stratified Two-Phase Sampling

    • Abstract: The present study addresses the problems of mean estimation and nonresponse under the three-stage RRT model. Auxiliary information on an attribute and variable is used to propose a generalized class of exponential ratio-type estimators. Expressions for the bias, mean squared error, and minimum mean squared error for the proposed estimator are derived up to the first degree of approximation. The efficiency of the proposed estimator is studied theoretically and numerically using two real datasets. From the numerical analysis, the proposed generalized class of exponential ratio-type estimators outperforms ordinary mean estimators, usual ratio estimators, and exponential ratio-type estimators. Furthermore, the efficiencies of the mean estimators are observed to decrease with an increase in the sensitivity level of the survey question. As the inverse sampling rate and nonresponse rate go up, so does the efficiency of the mean estimators, which makes them more accurate.

  • Gompertz Ampadu Class of Distributions: Properties and Applications

    • Abstract: This paper introduces a new generator family of distributions called the Gompertz Ampadu-G family. Based on the generator, the Lomax distribution was modified into Gompertz Ampadu Lomax. The new distribution has a flexible hazard rate function that has upside-down and bathtub shapes, including increasing and decreasing hazard rate functions. The distribution comes with some desirable statistical properties. The distribution is applied to real-life data. Parameter estimates and test statistics show a better fit for the competitive models.

  • Tweedie Model for Predicting Factors Associated with Distance Traveled to
           Access Inpatient Services in Kenya

    • Abstract: Aim. This study aims to examine which factors influence the distance traveled by patients for inpatient care in Kenya. Methods. We used data from the fourth round of the Kenya Household Health Expenditure and Utilization survey. Our dependent variable was the self-reported distance traveled by patients to access inpatient care at public health facilities. As the clustered data were correlated, we used the generalized estimating equations approach with an exchangeable correlation under a Tweedie distribution. To select the best-fit covariates for predicting distance, we adopted a variable selection technique using the and criteria, wherein the lowest (highest) value for the former (latter) is preferred. Results. Using data for 451 participants from 47 counties, we found that three-fifths were admitted between 1 and 5 days, two-thirds resided in rural areas, and 90% were satisfied with the facilities’ service. Wealth quintiles were evenly distributed across respondents. Most admissions (81%) comprised 15, 65, and 25–54 years. Many households were of medium size (4–6 members) and had low education level (48%), and nine-tenths had no access to insurance. While two-thirds reported employment-based income, the same number reported not having cash to pay for inpatient services; 6 out of 10 paid over 3000 KES. Thus, differences in employment, ability to pay, and household size influence the distance traveled to access government healthcare facilities in Kenya. Interpretation. Low-income individuals more likely have large households and live in rural areas and, thus, are forced to travel farther to access inpatient care. Unlike the unemployed, the employed may have better socioeconomic status and possibly live near inpatient healthcare facilities, thereby explaining their short distances to access these services. Policymakers must support equal access to inpatient services, prioritize rural areas, open job opportunities, and encourage smaller families.

  • A Mixture of Clayton, Gumbel, and Frank Copulas: A Complete Dependence
           Model

    • Abstract: Knowledge of the dependence between random variables is necessary in the area of risk assessment and evaluation. Some of the existing Archimedean copulas, namely the Clayton and the Gumbel copulas, allow for higher correlations on the extreme left and right, respectively. In this study, we use the idea of convex combinations to build a hybrid Clayton–Gumbel–Frank copula that provides all dependence scenarios from existing Archimedean copulas. The corresponding density and conditional distribution functions of the derived models for two random variables, as well as an estimator for the proportion parameter associated with the proposed model, are also derived. The results show that the proposed model is able to show any case of dependence by providing coefficients for the upper tail and lower tail dependence.

  • Trend Analysis of Temperature and Rainfall of Rajasthan, India

    • Abstract: Increasing temperature and declining and erratic rainfall is one of the greatest global challenges. This study presents the trend analysis of temperature and rainfall in five divisional headquarters of Rajasthan, namely, Bikaner, Jaipur, Jodhpur, Kota, and Udaipur. The historic data of minimum and maximum temperature and rainfall for a period of 49 years from 1971 to 2019 were collected from Climate Research and Services, India Meteorological Department, Pune. Detection of trends and change in magnitude was done using the Mann–Kendall (MK) test and Sen’s slope, respectively. The results of the study indicated a significant increase in both minimum and maximum temperature over time for all the five stations. However, rainfall showed a nonsignificant increasing trend for Kota and Udaipur district, whereas Bikaner, Jaipur, and Jodhpur detected a negative trend.

  • Reliability Estimation for the Remained Stress-Strength Model under the
           Generalized Exponential Lifetime Distribution

    • Abstract: A stress-strength reliability model compares the strength and stresses on a certain system; it is used not only primarily in reliability engineering and quality control but also in economics, psychology, and medicine. In this paper, a novel extension of stress-strength models is presented. The mew model is applied under the generalized exponential distribution. The maximum likelihood estimator, asymptotic distribution, and Bayesian estimation are obtained. A comprehensive simulation study along with real data analysis is performed for illustrating the importance of the new stress-strength model.

  • Modeling of the COVID-19 Cases in Gulf Cooperation Council Countries Using
           ARIMA and MA-ARIMA Models

    • Abstract: Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is still a great pandemic presently spreading all around the world. In Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries, there were 1015269 COVID-19 confirmed cases, 969424 recovery cases, and 9328 deaths as of 30 Nov. 2020. This paper, therefore, subjected the daily reported COVID-19 cases of these three variables to some statistical models including classical ARIMA, kth SMA-ARIMA, kth WMA-ARIMA, and kth EWMA-ARIMA to study the trend and to provide the long-term forecasting of the confirmed, recovery, and death cases of the novel COVID-19 pandemic in the GCC countries. The data analyzed in this study covered the period starting from the first case of coronavirus reported in each GCC country to Jan 31, 2021. To compute the best parameter estimates, each model was fitted for 90% of the available data in each country, which is called the in-sample forecast or training data, and the remaining 10% was used for the out-of-sample forecast or testing data. The AIC was applied to the training data as a criterion method to select the best model. Furthermore, the statistical measure RMSE and MAPE were utilized for testing data, and the model with the minimum RMSE and MAPE was selected for future forecasting. The main finding, in general, is that the two models WMA-ARIMA and EWMA-ARIMA, besides the cubic and 4th degree polynomial regression, have given better results for in-sample and out-of-sample forecasts than the classical ARIMA models in fitting the confirmed and recovery cases while SMA-ARIMA and WMA-ARIMA were suitable to model the recovery and death cases in the GCC countries.

  • Explicit Solutions of the Extended Skorokhod Problems in Affine
           Transformations of Time-Dependent Strata

    • Abstract: The goal of this paper is to expand the explicit formula for the solutions of the Extended Skorokhod Problem developed earlier for a special class of constraining domains in with orthogonal reflection fields. We examine how affine transformations convert solutions of the Extended Skorokhod Problem into solutions of the new problem for the transformed constraining system. We obtain an explicit formula for the solutions of the Extended Skorokhod Problem for any - valued càdlàg function with the constraining set that changes in time and the reflection field naturally defined by any basis. The evolving constraining set is a region sandwiched between two graphs in the coordinate system generating the reflection field. We discuss the Lipschitz properties of the extended Skorokhod map and derive Lipschitz constants in special cases of constraining sets of this type.

  • Assessing the Performance of the Discrete Generalised Pareto Distribution
           in Modelling Non-Life Insurance Claims

    • Abstract: The generalised Pareto distribution (GPD) offers a family of probability spaces which support threshold exceedances and is thus suitable for modelling high-end actuarial risks. Nonetheless, its distributional continuity presents a critical limitation in characterising data of discrete forms. Discretising the GPD, therefore, yields a derived distribution which accommodates the count data while maintaining the essential tail modelling properties of the GPD. In this paper, we model non-life insurance claims under the three-parameter discrete generalised Pareto (DGP) distribution. Data for the study on reported and settled claims, spanning the period 2012–2016, were obtained from the National Insurance Commission, Ghana. The maximum likelihood estimation (MLE) principle was adopted in fitting the DGP to yearly and aggregated data. The estimation involved two steps. First, we propose a modification to the and frequency method in the literature. The proposal provides an alternative routine for generating initial estimators for MLE, in cases of varied count intervals, as is a characteristic of the claim data under study. Second, a bootstrap algorithm is implemented to obtain standard errors of estimators of the DGP parameters. The performance of the DGP is compared to the negative binomial distribution in modelling the claim data using the Akaike and Bayesian information criteria. The results show that the DGP is appropriate for modelling the count of non-life insurance claims and provides a better fit to the regulatory claim data considered.

  • Hidden Geometry of Bidirectional Grid-Constrained Stochastic Processes

    • Abstract: Bidirectional Grid Constrained (BGC) stochastic processes (BGCSPs) are constrained Itô diffusions with the property that the further they drift away from the origin, the more the resistance to movement in that direction they undergo. The underlying characteristics of the BGC parameter are investigated by examining its geometric properties. The most appropriate convex form for , that is, the parabolic cylinder is identified after extensive simulation of various possible forms. The formula for the resulting hidden reflective barrier(s) is determined by comparing it with the simpler Ornstein–Uhlenbeck process (OUP). Applications of BGCSP arise when a series of semipermeable barriers are present, such as regulating interest rates and chemical reactions under concentration gradients, which gives rise to two hidden reflective barriers.

  • Evaluation of Four Multiple Imputation Methods for Handling Missing Binary
           Outcome Data in the Presence of an Interaction between a Dummy and a
           Continuous Variable

    • Abstract: Multiple imputation by chained equations (MICE) is the most common method for imputing missing data. In the MICE algorithm, imputation can be performed using a variety of parametric and nonparametric methods. The default setting in the implementation of MICE is for imputation models to include variables as linear terms only with no interactions, but omission of interaction terms may lead to biased results. It is investigated, using simulated and real datasets, whether recursive partitioning creates appropriate variability between imputations and unbiased parameter estimates with appropriate confidence intervals. We compared four multiple imputation (MI) methods on a real and a simulated dataset. MI methods included using predictive mean matching with an interaction term in the imputation model in MICE (MICE-interaction), classification and regression tree (CART) for specifying the imputation model in MICE (MICE-CART), the implementation of random forest (RF) in MICE (MICE-RF), and MICE-Stratified method. We first selected secondary data and devised an experimental design that consisted of 40 scenarios (2 × 5 × 4), which differed by the rate of simulated missing data (10%, 20%, 30%, 40%, and 50%), the missing mechanism (MAR and MCAR), and imputation method (MICE-Interaction, MICE-CART, MICE-RF, and MICE-Stratified). First, we randomly drew 700 observations with replacement 300 times, and then the missing data were created. The evaluation was based on raw bias (RB) as well as five other measurements that were averaged over the repetitions. Next, in a simulation study, we generated data 1000 times with a sample size of 700. Then, we created missing data for each dataset once. For all scenarios, the same criteria were used as for real data to evaluate the performance of methods in the simulation study. It is concluded that, when there is an interaction effect between a dummy and a continuous predictor, substantial gains are possible by using recursive partitioning for imputation compared to parametric methods, and also, the MICE-Interaction method is always more efficient and convenient to preserve interaction effects than the other methods.

  • A Mixture of Regular Vines for Multiple Dependencies

    • Abstract: To uncover complex hidden dependency structures among variables, researchers have used a mixture of vine copula constructions. To date, these have been limited to a subclass of regular vine models, the so-called drawable vine, fitting only one type of bivariate copula for all variable pairs. However, the variation of complex hidden correlations from one pair of variables to another is more likely to be present in many real datasets. Single-type bivariate copulas are unable to deal with such a problem. In addition, the regular vine copula model is much more capable and flexible than its subclasses. Hence, to fully uncover and describe complex hidden dependency structures among variables and provide even further flexibility to the mixture of regular vine models, a mixture of regular vine models, with a mixed choice of bivariate copulas, is proposed in this paper. The model was applied to simulated and real data to illustrate its performance. The proposed model shows significant performance over the mixture of R-vine densities with a single copula family fitted to all pairs.

  • Two-Stage Joint Model for Multivariate Longitudinal and Multistate
           Processes, with Application to Renal Transplantation Data

    • Abstract: In longitudinal studies, clinicians usually collect longitudinal biomarkers’ measurements over time until an event such as recovery, disease relapse, or death occurs. Joint modeling approaches are increasingly used to study the association between one longitudinal and one survival outcome. However, in practice, a patient may experience multiple disease progression events successively. So instead of modeling of a single event, progression of the disease as a multistate process should be modeled. On the other hand, in such studies, multivariate longitudinal outcomes may be collected and their association with the survival process is of interest. In the present study, we applied a joint model of various longitudinal biomarkers and transitions between different health statuses in patients who underwent renal transplantation. The full joint likelihood approaches are faced with the complexities in computation of the likelihood. So, here, we have proposed two-stage modeling of multivariate longitudinal outcomes and multistate conditions to avoid these complexities. The proposed model showed reliable results compared to the joint model in case of joint modeling of univariate longitudinal biomarker and the multistate process.

  • Adjusted Extreme Conditional Quantile Autoregression with Application to
           Risk Measurement

    • Abstract: In this paper, we propose an extreme conditional quantile estimator. Derivation of the estimator is based on extreme quantile autoregression. A noncrossing restriction is added during estimation to avert possible quantile crossing. Consistency of the estimator is derived, and simulation results to support its validity are also presented. Using Average Root Mean Squared Error (ARMSE), we compare the performance of our estimator with the performances of two existing extreme conditional quantile estimators. Backtest results of the one-day-ahead conditional Value at Risk forecasts are also given.

  • An Empirical Likelihood Ratio-Based Omnibus Test for Normality with an
           Adjustment for Symmetric Alternatives

    • Abstract: An omnibus test for normality with an adjustment for symmetric alternatives is developed using the empirical likelihood ratio technique. We first transform the raw data via a jackknife transformation technique by deleting one observation at a time. The probability integral transformation was then applied on the transformed data, and under the null hypothesis, the transformed data have a limiting uniform distribution, reducing testing for normality to testing for uniformity. Employing the empirical likelihood technique, we show that the test statistic has a chi-square limiting distribution. We also demonstrated that, under the established symmetric settings, the CUSUM-type and Shiryaev–Roberts test statistics gave comparable properties and power. The proposed test has good control of type I error. Monte Carlo simulations revealed that the proposed test outperformed studied classical existing tests under symmetric short-tailed alternatives. Findings from a real data study further revealed the robustness and applicability of the proposed test in practice.

  • Forecasting the COVID-19 Diffusion in Italy and the Related Occupancy of
           Intensive Care Units

    • Abstract: This paper provides a model-based method for the forecast of the total number of currently COVID-19 positive individuals and of the occupancy of the available intensive care units in Italy. The predictions obtained—for a time horizon of 10 days starting from March 29th—will be provided at a national as well as at a more disaggregated level, following a criterion based on the magnitude of the phenomenon. While those regions hit the most by the pandemic have been kept separated, those less affected regions have been aggregated into homogeneous macroareas. Results show that—within the forecast period considered (March 29th–April 7th)—all of the Italian regions will show a decreasing number of COVID-19 positive people. The same will be observed for the number of people who will need to be hospitalized in an intensive care unit. These estimates are valid under constancy of the government’s current containment policies. In this scenario, northern regions will remain the most affected ones, whereas no significant outbreaks are foreseen in the southern regions.
