  • The Economic Impact of Texas State University-San Marcos [2007] 

    LeSage, James P. (2007-09)
    The impact of Texas State on the local, regional and state economics is greater than the direct spending by the University since money spent by the University is spent by employees, businesses, and their workers. As these ...
  • The Economic Impact of Texas State University [2014] 

    LeSage, James P. (2014-08)
    The impact of Texas State on the local, regional and state economics is greater than the direct spending by the University since money spent by the University is spent by employees, businesses, and their workers. As these ...
  • Errors in Variables or Bad Leverage at Some Observations ? 

    Blankmeyer, Eric (2011-10-01)
    Errors-in-variables is a long-standing, difficult issue in linear regression; and progress depends in part on new identifying assumptions. I characterize measurement error as bad-leverage points and assume that fewer than ...
  • A Brief Exploration in Statistics and Quantum Mechanics 

    Blankmeyer, Eric (2011-05-01)
    Quantum mechanics has some probabilistic or statistical features that have been considered paradoxical or exotic; at least, this impression is frequently conveyed in introductory textbooks on the subject and informal ...
  • Log-linear Indexes of Nominal Wage Rates and Employment in Eight U. S. Regions 

    Blankmeyer, Eric (2008-02-11)
    This paper illustrates the use of log-linear indexes to estimate and test hypotheses about interregional differences in nominal wages and employment. A two-way analysis of variance is applied to cross sections of U. S. ...
  • Improving the small-sample efficiency of a robust correlation matrix: a note 

    Blankmeyer, Eric (2007-04-23)
    This note reports small-sample simulations of a correlation matrix estimated robustly by P. J. Rousseeuw's MCD algorithm. It appears that the statistical efficiency of MCD can be improved significantly if a pairwise-difference ...
  • How robust is linear regression with dummy variables ? 

    Blankmeyer, Eric (2006-11-03)
    Researchers in education and the social sciences make extensive use of linear regression models in which the dependent variable is continuous-valued while the explanatory variables are a combination of continuous-valued ...
  • Percentiles of an Inflation Index by Quantile Regression 

    Blankmeyer, Eric (2006-06-01)
    This paper gives a methodology for estimating an inflation index using the quantile regression of Bassett and Koenker. The regression, which is orthogonal in the logarithmic price changes, is computed by linear programming ...
