报告摘要:In many applications, subgroups with different parameters may exist even after accounting for the covariate effects, and it is important to identify the meaningful subgroups for better medical treatment or market segmentation.We propose a robust subgroup identification method based on median regression with concave fusion penalization. The proposed method can simultaneously determine the number of subgroups, identify the group membership for each subject, and estimate the regression coefficients. Without requiring any parametric distributional assumptions, the proposed method is robust against both outliers in the response and heteroscedantcity in the regression error. We develop a convenient algorithm based on local linear approximation and propose a new divide-and-conquer algorithm to alleviate the computing challenge for large samples. In addition, we establish the oracle property of the proposed penalized estimator by employing a recently developed convex-differencing tool to account for the nonsmooth loss and nonconvex penalty functions. The numerical performance of the proposed method is assessed through simulation and the analysis of a heart disease data..
