Regression models : censored, sample selected or truncated data by Richard Breen( )

25 editions published between 1996 and 2003 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,305 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What techniques can social scientists use when an outcome variable for a sample (for example, y) is not representative of the population for which generalized results are preferred? Author Richard Breen provides an introduction to regression models for such data, including censored, sample-selected, and truncated data. Regression Models begins with a discussion of the Tobit model and examines issues such as maximum likelihood estimation and the interpretation of parameters. The author next discusses the basic sample selection model and the truncated regression model. Elaborating on the modeling of censored and sample-selected data via maximum likelihood, he shows the close links between the models introduced and other regression models for non-continuous dependent variables, such as the ordered probit. Concluding with an exploration of some of the criticisms of these approaches and difficulties associated with them, this volume gives readers a guide to the practical utility of these models."--Publisher description

Understanding contemporary Ireland : state, class, and development in the Republic of Ireland by Richard Breen( Book )

16 editions published between 1990 and 2016 in English and held by 355 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1960 the Irish State embarked on a programme of development which rapidly transformed the economy and with it Irish society. This book is about that transformation and its effects. In particular, it focuses on the relationship between the policies pursued by the State and the class structure of Ireland. It argues that, despite promises of general prosperity, the benefits of Ireland's economic development have been very unevenly distributed, leading to a growing polarisation between social classes

Education and intergenerational social mobility in Europe and the United States by Richard Breen( )

12 editions published in 2020 in English and held by 180 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume examines the role of education in shaping rates and patterns of intergenerational social mobility among men and women during the twentieth century. Focusing on the relationship between a person's social class and the social class of his or her parents, each chapter looks at a different country--the United States, Sweden, Germany, France, the Netherlands, Italy, Spain, and Switzerland. Contributors examine change in absolute and relative mobility and in education across birth cohorts born between the first decade of the twentieth century and the early 1970s. They find a striking similarity in trends across all countries, and in particular a contrast between the fortunes of people born before the 1950s, those who enjoyed increasing rates of upward mobility and a decline in the strength of the link between class origins and destinations, and later generations who experienced more downward mobility and little change in how origins and destinations are linked. This volume uncovers the factors that drove these shifts, revealing education as significant in promoting social openness. It will be an invaluable source for anyone who wants to understand the evolution of mobility and inequality in the contemporary world."--

Poverty dynamics corrected for measurement error by Richard Breen( Book )

3 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We use latent class models to correct measurement error in estimates of the dynamics of relative income poverty in ten EU countries measured over four waves of the European Community Household Panel. We fit a latent mover-stayer Markov model which gives an acceptable fit to all ten transition tables. We focus in more detail on four countries -- Denmark, the Netherlands, Italy and the UK -- and show that mobility in poverty transition tables is over-estimated by between 25 and 50 percent if measurement error is ignored. In addition, once error is corrected, poverty rates show less crossnational variation
