Empirical likelihood inference in the presence of measurement error

Journal Article


Suppose that several different imperfect instruments and one perfect instrument are used independently to measure some characteristic of a population. The authors consider the problem of combining this information to make statistical inference on parameters of interest, in particular the population mean and cumulative distribution function. They develop maximum empirical likelihood estimators and study their asymptotic properties. They also present simulation results on the finite sample efficiency of these estimators.
