      The Generalized Lambda Distribution (GλD) is a four-parameter generalization of Tukey’s Lambda family. Several methods for estimating the parameters of the GλD have been reported in the literature, but the most popular ...
    • Gravity Unfolding Analysis for Asymmetric Similarities Matrix 

      Zaborski, Artur (Wydawnictwo Uniwersytetu Łódzkiego, 2013)
      The multidimensional unfolding analysis which uses in the structure the gravity function allows consideration and analysis of additional factors (such as market share or brand loyalty), which affect the assessments of ...
    • Indirect Estimation Accounting for Spatial Autocorrelation in Economic Statistics 

      Dehnel, Grażyna; Klimanek, Tomasz; Kowalewski, Jacek (Wydawnictwo Uniwersytetu Łódzkiego, 2013)
      The authors present results of a study which attempted to use indirect estimation methods (including a method accounting for spatial correlation) to estimate certain characteristics enterprises. The study relied on data ...
    • Influence of Inaccuracy Measurement On Middle- Operating Control Costs 

      Chmielińska, Magdalena (Wydawnictwo Uniwersytetu Łódzkiego, 2013)
      Control charts are commonly used in plants to monitor the correctness of manufacturing process, due to their simplicity and explicitness of diagnosis. Qualification mistakes make that the signals, appear either with lag, ...
    • Influence of Unemployed Person Age on the Hazard and its Changes in Time 

      Bieszk-Stolorz, Beata; Markowicz, Iwona (Wydawnictwo Uniwersytetu Łódzkiego, 2013)
      The aim of the article is to analyse the influence of unemployed person’s age on job seeking time. This influence can changes in time. That analysis is possible by using Cox nonproportional hazard model. We get the marks ...
