Abstract:

The pushback estimates are a preliminary data modification followed by the application of a robust statistic to the modified data. Application of configural polysampling techniques and use of the minimum attainable variance and maximum attainable polyefficiency derived from these techniques aid in fine-tuning the pushback estimates. The form of the pushback estimate shown by traditional Monte Carlo methods to perform well in comparison to a good biweight is modified and the performance is improved. Author
