Final Progress Reports

Year:   2005 

The Environmental Statistics Core provides statistical support for all projects supported by the Superfund grant at Harvard.  In addition to statistical design and analysis, Core faculty and staff provide advice on data management issues and statistical computing.  They also provide statistical training for graduate students working on projects.  Core faculty engaged in mission-related research, motivated by questions that arise from the various projects.

Mission-related research has focused on the development of residual-based diagnostics for linear regression models for correlated data, statistical models for the analysis of biomarker data, as well as statistical methods for missing data and structural equations modeling.  More recently, the Environmental Statistics Core has been exploring the use of penalized latent class models for handling high dimensional biomarker data.   A special emphasis is the development and application of statistical methods for spatio-temporal analysis.
