Testing for a breakpoint in segmented regression: a pseudo score approach

Research output: Contribution to conferenceOther

Abstract

To overcome the well known oddities in testing for the existence of a breakpoint in segmented regression models, we discuss a novel approach based on the Pearson X2 statistic which can be understood as an approximation of the Score statistic. We describe the method and present results from some simulations.
