The Gini Methodology: A Primer on a Statistical Methodology

Gini's suggest distinction (GMD) was once first brought through Corrado Gini in 1912 in its place degree of variability. GMD and the parameters that are derived from it (such because the Gini coefficient or the focus ratio) were in use within the zone of source of revenue distribution for nearly a century. In perform, using GMD as a degree of variability is justified each time the investigator isn't really able to impose, with no wondering, the handy international of normality.

Xn ). f. exp(−|x − θ |) . 2 What is the maximum likelihood estimate of θ ? We see that the likelihood function has the f (x, θ ) = form n L(x1 , x2 , . . , xn , θ ) = exp − ∑ |xk − θ | k=1 2n . 4) To maximize L(x1 , x2 , . . , xn , θ ) it suffices to minimize σ (θ ) = n ∑ |xk − θ |. k=1 Let us arrange observations x1 , . . , xn in the non-decreasing order: x1,n ··· xn,n . Here we must distinguish two situations. At first, we consider odd values of n. Let n = 2k + 1, k = 0, 1, 2, . .. It is not difficult to show that σ (θ ) decreases with respect to θ in the interval (−∞, xk+1,2k+1 ) and σ (θ ) increases for θ ∈ (xk+1,2k+1 , ∞).

20) as the product of powers of independent uniformly distributed random variables as follows: d 1/k 1/(k+1) Uk,n = Wk Wk+1 1/n · · ·Wn , k = 1, 2, . . , n. 5. Show that for any n = 2, 3, . , ratios Vk = (Uk,n /Uk+1,n )k , k = 1, 2, . . , n, where Un+1,n = 1, are independent and have the same uniform distribution on [0, 1]. 6. Let Uk,n , 1 n, n = 1, 2, . . denote order statistics based on the sequence k of independent, uniformly on the interval [0, 1] distributed random variables U1 , U2 , .

Chapter 4 Representations for Order Statistics We prove some important relations, which enable us to express order statistics, in terms of sums or products of independent random variables.
