Diagnostic measures for empirical likelihood of general estimating equations
We develop diagnostic measures for assessing the influence of individual observations when using empirical likelihood with general estimating equations, and we use these measures to construct goodness-of-fit statistics for testing possible misspecification in the estimating equations. Our diagnostics include case-deletion measures, local influence measures and pseudo-residuals. Our goodness-of-fit statistics include the sum of local influence measures and the processes of pseudo-residuals. Simulation studies are conducted to evaluate our methods, and real datasets are analyzed to illustrate the use of our diagnostic measures and goodness-of-fit statistics.
