Inference for CUB models: a program in R digital
format: Article | STATISTICA & APPLICAZIONI - 2014 - 2
Year: 2015
An alternative approach has been proposed for the analysis and the modelling of ordinal data: it is based on the psychological process by which a respondent expresses his/her evaluation about the item with an inherent indecision. This class of models has been developed with many variants and it is now indicated as CUB models...
A comparison of preliminary estimators in a class of ordinal data models

Year: 2009
In this paper, we propose several initial values for the EM algorithm of maximum likelihood estimates of the parameters in a class of models, called CUB, recently introduced for ordinal data. Specifically, we compare the algorithmic efficiency of each estimator with respect to a naive proposal through a vast simulation experiment. The results confirm a substantial gain in efficiency of the moments estimators over the whole parametric space. Then, some extensions are also discussed and several applications to real data sets are presented.
