5 VARIATIONS ON MAXIMUM LIKELIHOOD ESTIMATION The concept of accounting for estimation of the mean when estimating the variance leads to a modification of maximum likelihood called residual maximum likelihood (REML). Some authors use the term restricted maximum likelihood as well. 7, define the residuals Zi = Yi − Y . The Zi’s have mean zero and B A CK G R OU N D 19 variance proportional to σ2. Hence, they can be used to estimate σ2 independently of the estimate of μ. Applying maximum likelihood techniques to the Zi’s yields the REML estimator S2 of σ2; that is, the usual sample variance is a REML estimator.
Boykin et al. (2011) demonstrated the issues that arise when options are used that are not appropriate for the problem at hand. Examples in Chapters 4 and 5 contain specific examples of overrides of defaults essential to complete an appropriate analysis. J. A. Johnson, M. Kramer, D. Meek, D. Palmquist, B. Vinyard, and M. West. 2011. Generalized linear mixed model estimation using PROC GLIMMIX: Results from simulations when the data and model match, and when the model is misspecified. p. 137–170.
The degree to which the tails are heavier than the normal distribution depends on the parameter v, commonly known as the degrees of freedom. When μ = 0, the distribution is referred to as a central t or simply a t distribution. The t distribution would be used as an alternative for the normal distribution when the data are believed to have a symmetric, unimodal shape but with a larger probability of extreme observations (heavier tails) than would be expected for a normal distribution. As a result of having heavier tails, data from a t distribution often appear to have more outliers than would be expected if the data had come from a normal distribution.
