The Influence Function in the Errors in Variables Problem
This paper focuses on two aspects of the errors in variables problem--variance estimation of the classical estimators of slope and intercept, and the detection of influential observations. The behaviour of the jackknife, bootstrap, normal theory and influence function estimators of variability is examined under a number of sampling situations by Monte Carlo methods. In the multivariate case, perturbation analysis is used to calculate the influence function of the estimator of Gleser (1981). The connection to estimation in linear regression models is discussed. The role of the influence function in the detection of influential observations is considered and an illustration is given by a numerical example.
