In this chapter, we examine closely four examples that utilize or are related to some of the concepts discussed in Part III. In most cases, concepts and results from Part II also play a key role. A secondary goal in these examples is to illustrate a paradigm for statistical research that can be applied to many different data generating models. This is particularly true for the first example on the proportional odds model under right censoring. This model has been discussed extensively in previous chapters, but it is helpful to organize all the steps that are (or should be) taken in developing inference for this model. A few holes in these steps are filled in along the way.
