报告摘要:In the receiver operating characteristic (ROC) analysis, the area under the ROC curve (AUC) isa popular summary index of discriminatory accuracy of a diagnostic test. Incorporating covariates into ROCanalysis can improve the diagnostic accuracy of the test. Regression model for the AUC is a tool to evaluate theeffects of the covariates on the diagnostic accuracy. In this paper, empirical likelihood (EL) method is proposedfor the AUC regression model. For the regression parameter vector, it can be shown that the asymptoticdistribution of its EL ratio statistic is a weighted sum of independent chi-square distributions. Confidenceregions are constructed for the parameter vector based on the newly developed empirical likelihood theorem, aswell as for the covariate-specific AUC. Simulation studies were conducted to compare the relative performanceof the proposed EL-based methods with the existing method in AUC regression. Finally, the proposed methodsare illustrated with a real data set.
