  • Regression analysis with missing values of explanatory variables (The thesis deals with approaches to regression analysis with missing values of explanatory variables. Various patterns of missing data will be introduced. Various approaches to handling missing data will be reviewed and compared. The approaches and their performance will be studied making use of real-life as well as simulated data sets. R software is recommended to be used for the practical implementation.)

  • Econometric Analysis of Consumption (the aim of this thesis is to estimate different specifications of production function for the country of origin of the student, using different estimation methods).

Malá, Ivana

  • Modelling of the incomes of households in Europe (for the modelling of a probability distribution of incomes the income probability distributions are usually applied. In the thesis incomes of the European households of members aged over 50 will be analysed based on data from the SHARE (Survey of Health, Ageing and Retirement in Europe) project. The two parametric and three parametric lognormal distributions will be used to model the probability distribution of incomes.)

 

Mazouch, Petr

 

Šimpach, Ondřej

  • Possibilities of using simulation systems in demography (In the developed world of computing, there are many products designed to simulate real situations around us (e.g. Simprocess, Simul8, etc.) It is possible to use these systems also for the simulation of human behavior? How and with what results?)

 

  • Simulation of population development in small territorial units (Population projection in its pure form, which is taught in basic courses, is applicable only for the larger territorial units. For application on the territorial units of smaller range is this approach inappropriate. This thesis will provide an alternative approach to projecting population in small specific areas, including their application to real data.)

 

  • Decreasing of seasonality in typical seasonal demographic time series during the last 20 years (The significant seasonal events have occurred in demography long time ago, among which were especially included the marriages and the births within marriage. This theses will focus on some typical seasonal demographic time series and analyze the decline of this seasonal trend. It also check whether the hypothesis which claims that the volatility of these series is decreasing in time is not rejected.)

 

Šulc, Zdeněk

  • Similarity measures in hierarchical cluster analysis (This topic deals with an examination of one (or several) similarity measures for categorical data, which have been proposed in recent years, but has not been implemented in any software yet. The aim is to program a selected similarity measure and to compare it with some already introduced similarity measures. The comparison could be performed on both real and generated datasets).

 

  • Application of multivariate methods on real data (The aim of this topic is to get a real multivariate dataset, clean it, formulate the research questions, use an appropriate multivariate method (methods) on it, and to interpret the results).

Zimmermann, Pavel

  • Optimal claims split into attritional and large groups in the reserving task (Insurance company has to predict its future liabilities in order to set its reserves properly. The prediction is often done separately for attritional and large claims. Present methods for selecting the large claims threshold are usually based on expert jufgment or some descriptive statistics. The thesis should study methods to set the threshold that optimizes the predictive power of the model).
