An estimator for ratios of Poisson distributed quantitiesArticles
A common task for national statistical institutes is to estimate the size of a subpopulation, with certain specific characteristics, as a proportion of a larger population or subpopulation. This paper...
Complexity and simplification of networks (v2)Articles
The paper deals with two topics: the quantification of the complexity of networks (graphs and digraphs) and the simplification of networks by identifying their most important parts (nodes and arcs / edges)...
Comparing activity trackers to investigate physical activityArticles
This paper describes the search for a sensor system that is accurately and validly capable to recognise physical activity and its intensity. Different methods to estimate the intensity of physical activity...
Privacy Preserving Techniques and Statistical Disclosure ControlArticles
Protection of the privacy of respondents is vital for statistical institutes. This paper puts two privacy concerning fields into perspective: privacy preserving techniques and statistical disclosure control.
