Efficient estimation of smooth distributions from coarsely grouped data.

Rizzi S, Gampe J, Eilers PH - Am. J. Epidemiol. (2015)

Bottom Line: Optimal values of the smoothing parameter are chosen by minimizing Akaike's Information Criterion.We demonstrate the performance of this method in a simulation study and provide several examples that illustrate the approach.Wide, open-ended intervals can be handled properly.

Gompertz distribution with grouping width 5 and sample size (A and C, n = 200; B and D, n = 1,000). The solid black line gives the standard deviation of 500 penalized composite link model estimates obtained in this setting. The gray lines summarize the distribution of the 500 estimates of the standard error derived from the sandwich estimator (A and B) and from the Bayesian estimator (C and D), with median (solid gray line), 25%–75% quantiles (dashed gray lines), and 1%–99% quantiles (dotted gray lines), respectively.
