Quantile Regression Modeling for Survival Data with a Cured Subgroup

Quantile regression is a more robust and comprehensive alternative to the commonly used classical least squares regression. This talk will explore a novel statistical approach using quantile regression modeling for studying survival data in the presence of a subgroup of cured patients with application to analyzing lung cancer data.

Noon, William Schneider, Social Work
Income and Housing Support Experiments and Child Neglect

Both child abuse and child neglect are often considered to be the result of parental psychopathology. However, child neglect may also be closely tied to experiences of poverty. The current project seeks to identify the causal effect of poverty on child maltreatment, and child neglect in particular, by linking administrative child welfare data to three pre-existing income and housing support experiments.
