    A test statistic for selection of multivariate linear regression models 

    Srisuda Boonyim; Jirawan Jitthavech (National Institute of Development Administration, 2015)

    In this study, a test statistic used to select a multivariate linear regression model based on Mallows’s Cp with the same rationale as the SCp criterion from the system of equations Vichit Lorchirachoonkul and Jirawan Jitthavech (2012: 2386- 2394) proposed. The D statistic, which is the difference between the modified Cp statistics in the reduced model and in the full model, approximates to a standard normal distribution.

    Tests for gamma distribution based on its independence property 

    Bandhita Plubin; Pachitjanut Siripanich (National Institute of Development Administration, 2015)

    There are two test statistics proposed in this study in order to test whether data come from a gamma distribution. Both of the proposed test statistics are developed from a modified Kendall coefficient based on the independence property of a gamma distribution. The first one is asymptotically distributed as standard normal and the limit distribution function of the second one was improved using an Edgeworth expansion and the Jackknife method. They are invariant to scale parameters and perform substantially better than existing tests in terms of ...

    Tests for mean vectors in high-dimensional data 

    Knavoot Jiamwattanapong; Samruam Chongcharoen (National Institute of Development Administration, 2015)

    High-dimensional data are ubiquitous and bring new challenges, not only to statisticians, but also to researchers in many scientific fields. They arise in situations where the dimension ( p) , the number of variables in a unit, is larger than the sample size (n), the number of units; data analysis using classical multivariate methods can no longer be applied.

In spite of its business vitality, little attention has been paid to this area of study. As Thailand is the top durian exporter in the global market, this paper aims to explore the characteristics of the Thai durian supply ...

    Thai soundex using Thai phonetic distance algorithm 

    Chonlasith Jucksriporn; Ohm Sornil (National Institute of Development Administration, 2014)

    Homophones are words with similar sound. Searching for homophones is not only looking for the words with similar spelling, but it should also be looking for the words with similar pronunciation. Specifically in Thai, some consonant clusters can be pronounced in different ways, such as // can be pronounced as // or // depending on cach particular word. This makes Thoi word pronunciation and dictation more dilliculi Thai sounder could not handle these consonant clusters properly: for example, many Thai soundex methods showed cncoded results of a ...

    Thailand airport operation model for the low-cost carriers 

    Sukhuman Klamsaengsai; Therdchai Choibamroong (สถาบันบัณฑิตพัฒนบริหารศาสตร์, 2014)

    An expansion of low-cost carriers (LCC) has increased the number of air passengers and visitors within a tourism system. This growth has also challenged airports by shaping their operations. This study came forth because of the deficiency of research on the links between Thailand airport operations and low-cost carriers, and the airport operational pattern for such carriers. Thus, the purposes of the study were to 1) study the operational efficiency of Thailand airports from low-cost carriers’ perspectives, 2) investigate levels of importance ...

    Thailand fertility related policies and social institution factors influencing middle-income earning generation y's fertility intentions 

    Satayu Pattarakijkusol; Anchana NaRanong (National Institute of Development Administration, 2019)

    The ageing population phenomenon, also known as a greying population, is becoming a global problem. Many developed countries have been facing this demographic challenge for almost a decade. The ageing population is challenging because of an imbalance in a nation’s population structure. The problem occurs when a nation’s fertility and mortality rates decline. In other words, people live longer, and there are fewer newborn babies. Thailand’s fertility rate has been dramatically declining from 5.595 children per women in 1970 to 1.671 children ...
