Notes
According to the way the native parameters of the distribution are estimated, the parameters distribution differs:
Moments method: the asymptotic parameters distribution is normal and estimated by Bootstrap on the initial data;
Maximum likelihood method with a regular model: the asymptotic parameters distribution is normal and its covariance matrix is the inverse Fisher information matrix;
Other methods: the asymptotic parameters distribution is estimated by Bootstrap on the initial data and kernel fitting (see
KernelSmoothing
).
If another set of parameters is specified, the native parameters distribution is first estimated and the new distribution is determined from it:
if the native parameters distribution is normal and the transformation regular at the estimated parameters values: the asymptotic parameters distribution is normal and its covariance matrix determined from the inverse Fisher information matrix of the native parameters and the transformation;
in the other cases, the asymptotic parameters distribution is estimated by Bootstrap on the initial data and kernel fitting.
