Using Fence Methods for Model Selection (fence)
This method is a new class of model selection strategies, for mixed model selection, which includes linear and generalized linear mixed models. The idea involves a procedure to isolate a subgroup of what are known as correct models (of which the optimal model is a member). This is accomplished by constructing a statistical fence, or barrier, to carefully eliminate incorrect models. Once the fence is constructed, the optimal model is selected from among those within the fence according to a criterion which can be made flexible. References: 1. Jiang J., Rao J.S., Gu Z., Nguyen T.
