Research Institute for Quantitative Studies in Economics and Population [McMaster University, Hamilton, Ontario] Working Paper: ” A Shortcoming of the Conventional Approach to Statistical Explanation for Wage or Income Variation: Offering a Better Alternative,” by Kao-Lee Liaw and Ji-Ping Lin (Research Review No. 453, August 2014, .pdf format, 68p.).

Abstract:

In explaining wage or income by personal attributes (e.g. educational attainment, age, and ethnicity) in a regression model, many researchers choose to use the log of wage or income asthe dependent variable and then to estimate the unknown coefficients by some version of theleast-squares method. We call this approach the conventional approach.

Using the micro data of the 2005-2007 American Community Survey and Taiwan’s 2001-2010 Manpower Utilization Survey, we show that the conventional approach has the serious shortcoming of under-predicting the observed wage structure in the space spanned by the values of the explanatory variables. In addition to revealing the reason for the under-prediction problem and linking the severity of this problem to wage variability, we present a nonlinear approach that does not have this shortcoming. We also offer a SAS module for carrying out the estimation task in the nonlinear approach.

Center for Statistics and the Social Sciences [Washington University] Working Paper: “Use and Communication of Probabilistic Forecasts,” by Adrian E. Raftery (Working Paper No. 145, August 2014, .pdf format, 26p.).

Abstract:

Probabilistic forecasts are becoming more and more available. How should they be used and communicated? What are the obstacles to their use in practice? I review experience with five problems where probabilistic forecasting played an important role. This leads me to identify five types of potential users: Low Stakes Users, who don’t need probabilistic forecasts; General Assessors, who need an overall idea of the uncertainty in the forecast; Change Assessors, who need to know if a change is out of line with expectatations; Risk Avoiders, who wish to limit the risk of an adverse outcome; and Decision Theorists, who quantify their loss function and perform the decision-theoretic calculations. This suggests that it is important to interact with users and to consider their goals. The cognitive research tells us that calibration is important for trust in probability forecasts, and that it is important to match the verbal expression with the task. The cognitive load should be minimized, reducing the probabilistic forecast to a single percentile if appropriate. Probabilities of adverse events and percentiles of the predictive distribution of quantities of interest seem often to be the best way to summarize probabilistic forecasts. Formal decision theory has an important role, but in a limited range of applications.
