Use of Shape Restricted Regression Methods for Fitting Model of Per Capita GDP: A Global Economic Scenario of 2018

  •  Sanjida Tasnim    


The aim of the study is to analyze the pattern of Gross domestic product (GDP) according to Human development index (HDI) for 184 countries of the world. GDP per capita indicates only economic prosperity but not the overall development of the citizens of a country. This research tries to find out the beneath relationship of the financial state and human development of countries using the data of 2018. For demonstrating this analysis several parametric and non-parametric regression methods subject to shape restriction have been used. The study targets to shed light on comparative performance of shape constrained regression with cone projection, polynomial regression, LOESS, Istonic regression with pooled adjacent violators algorithm, Kernel regression, smoothing spline and generalized additive model in convex situation.
