This paper presents a new quasi-profile loglikelihood with the standard kind of distributional limit behaviour, for inference about an arbitrary one-dimensional parameter of interest, based on unbiased estimating functions. The new function is obtained by requiring to the corresponding quasi-profile score function to have bias and information bias of order 0(1). We illustrate the use of the proposed pseudo-likelihood with an application for robust inference in linear models.

Abstract

This paper presents a new quasi-profile loglikelihood with the standard kind of distributional limit behaviour, for inference about an arbitrary one-dimensional parameter of interest, based on unbiased estimating functions. The new function is obtained by requiring to the corresponding quasi-profile score function to have bias and information bias of order 0(1). We illustrate the use of the proposed pseudo-likelihood with an application for robust inference in linear models.
