Title: Covariate Measurement Error Models, Past Developments and Modern Advancements
Author(s): Jeffrey S Buzas*
Companies: University of Vermont
Keywords: Measurement error; Translational research; Instrumental variables

How have covariate measurement error methods progressed over the last 30 years, and what are the areas of opportunity for further methodological and translational research? This talk provides a non-historian’s history of the development and application of covariate measurement error methods in regression applications. Through an overview of the progression of increasingly complex models that have been studied for both the covariate measurement error and regression application, I hope to convey the evolving impact of measurement error methods, and describe the extent of their use in scientific disciplines.

Authors who are presenting talks have a * after their name.
