Description

Wage rates of 753 married white women with left censoring

Usage

1

Format

A data frame with 753 observed wage rates of married white women in 1975. Some wage rates are set equal to zero, this means that those wives did not work in 1975, therefore, these observations are considered left censored at zero

##Load the data
data(wage.rates)

##Setting y, x and cc
y <- wage.rates$wage
x <- cbind(1,wage.rates$age,wage.rates$educ,wage.rates$kidslt6,wage.rates$kidsge6)
cc<- (wage.rates$inlf==0)+0
p <- ncol(x)
n <- nrow(x)

## Fits a left censored Normal model and calculates Generalized Cook Distance
Normal <- em.cens(cc,-x,-y,dist="Normal",diagnostic=TRUE,typediag=1)

#Graphics the diagnostic measures
GD <- Normal$measure$GD

GDbeta <- Normal$measure$GDbeta

## Fits a left censored Student-t model, does not calculate any diagnostic measures
