  • Schedule of today talk definiton, properties and how to apply The least trimmed squaresdefinition The least weighted squaresThey utilized -regression Galileo Galilie (1632) Roger Joseph Bocovich (1757) Pierre Simon Laplace (1793)(already Francis Ysidro Edgeworth ., 1887) A motivation for robust regression

  • (continued) Schedule of today talk separating market oriented part from the restLooking for the sense of division dividing the industries into two groups - whyAnalyzing the export from and FDI into the Czech republic 1994 separating market oriented parts from the rest for each year Analyzing the export from the Czech republic - 1993-1999

  • Why robust methods in regression ?What about to consider a minimal elipsoid containing a priori given number of observations.

  • So the solution seems to be simple !continuedWhy robust methods in regression ?

  • continuedWhy robust methods in regression ?(otherwise we lose some useful information) I am sorry but we have to invent a more intricate solution.

  • So, for the OLS we have the breakdown point equal zero (asymptotically) ! Minimal number of observations which can cause that estimator breaks down. Recalling that is breakdown point

  • Francis Ysidro Edgeworth, 1887 The method of the least squares is seen to be our best course when we have thrown overboard a certain portion of our data - a sort of sacrifice which has often to be made by those who sail the stormy seas of Probability.

  • One of really applicable 50% breakdown point estimator The Least Trimmed Squares - Rousseeuw (1983) . and that the order statistics are given by

    Let us recall that for any the residuals are given as The optimal . . Then for any

  • Continued The Least Trimmed Squares- evidently 50% breakdown point - scale- and regression-equivariant - -consistent and asymptotically normal - nowadays easy to evaluate Advantages - high subsample sensitivity, i.e. can be (arbitrarily) high Disadvantage Rousseeuw, Leroy (1987) PROGRESS First proposal based on LMS, in fact, the trimmed least squares. Probably still in S-PLUS, e.g.. It did not work satisfactorily, sometimes very bad.

  • How to select h reasonably?Number of points of this cloud is . is only a bit smaller than

  • Algorithm for the case when n is large is described in:

One implementation is available in package XPLORE (supplied by Humboldt University), TURBO-PASCAL-version from me, MATLAB version from my PhD-student Libora Maek.

  • relying on international trade The Czech Republic - small open economyThe export into EU increased in nineties from 8 billion US$ to 18.4 billion US$, i.e. annually 16.3%.

  • IN NUMBERS:Export into EU - 70.7 % 1/3 Germany 1/12 AustriaEuropean transition economies - 20.8 % 1/12 Slovakia 1/19 PolandRest of world - 8.4 %

  • HYPOTHESISThere is an increasing segment of economyIn other words:There is an increasing segment of economy - as follows from the previous - oriented on EU.which is export orientedwhich resembles market economy.

  • 91 industries, nearly 40 variables, year 1994
