Using Liu-type estimator to combat collinearity. (English) Zbl 1107.62345
Summary: Linear regression model and least squares method are widely used in many fields of natural and social sciences. In the presence of collinearity, the least squares estimator is unstable and often gives misleading information. Ridge regression is the most common method to overcome this problem. We find that when there exists severe collinearity, the shrinkage parameter selected by existing methods for ridge regression may not fully address the ill conditioning problem. To solve this problem, we propose a new two-parameter estimator. We show using both theoretic results and simulation that our new estimator has two advantages over ridge regression. First, our estimator has less mean squared error (MSE). Second, our estimator can fully address the ill conditioning problem. A numerical example from literature is used to illustrate the results.
