About this book
This monograph on measurement error and misclassification covers a broad range of problems and emphasizes unique features in modeling and analyzing problems arising from medical research and epidemiological studies. Many measurement error and misclassification problems have been addressed in various fields over the years as well as with a wide spectrum of data, including event history data (such as survival data and recurrent event data), correlated data (such as longitudinal data and clustered data), multi-state event data, and data arising from case-control studies. Statistical Analysis with Measurement Error or Misclassification: Strategy, Method and Application brings together assorted methods in a single text and provides an update of recent developments for a variety of settings. Measurement error effects and strategies of handling mismeasurement for different models are closely examined in combination with applications to specific problems.
Readers with diverse backgrounds and objectives can utilize this text. Familiarity with inference methods—such as likelihood and estimating function theory—or modeling schemes in varying settings—such as survival analysis and longitudinal data analysis—can result in a full appreciation of the material, but it is not essential since each chapter provides basic inference frameworks and background information on an individual topic to ease the access of the material. The text is presented in a coherent and self-contained manner and highlights the essence of commonly used modeling and inference methods.
This text can serve as a reference book for researchers interested in statistical methodology for handling data with measurement error or misclassification; as a textbook for graduate students, especially for those majoring in statistics and biostatistics; or as a book for applied statisticians whose interest focuses on analysis of error-contaminated data.

“This book constitutes a comprehensive and thorough treatment of measurement error and misclassification in survival data, recurrent event data, longitudinal data, multi-state models, and case-control studies. … the book is well written and a pleasure to read.” (Rianne Jacobs, ISCB News, iscb.info, Issue 65, June, 2018)
“This book successfully collects, compiles, organizes, and presents the literature on the newly developed and earlier existing topics of measurement error models and misclassification in a crisp and concise way without losing the clarity in understanding. … I am sure it will stimulate researchers in and newcomers to this area.” (Shalabh, Mathematical Reviews, June, 2018)
“This book covers a wide range of topics in a unified framework where measurement error and misclassification problems receive careful treatments, from both practical and theoretical points of view. … This book can serve well as a textbook for a graduate-level course on measurement error in a (bio)statistics department … . Besides ample real life applications presented in the book, from which students can appreciate practical relevance of measurement error problems … .” (Xianzheng Huang, Journal of the American Statistical Association JASA, Vol. 113 (522), 2018)
