Regarding parametric methods, the results obtained by the AR models confirm the previous assumption that, without making a much deeper study, these are not optimal for processing MER recordings.
On the contrary, the parametric method always overestimated the probability of interest, but the mean bias was low as well, ranging across scenarios from 0.009 to 0.082 (median: 0.028).

Equal frequency discretizer is a static, unsupervised and parametric method. It finds the minimum and maximum value attributes and then arranges all the values in increasing order.
The parametric method is represented by stochastic frontier analysis (SFA), which needs to construct a function and is limited to single output, (5) though in many cases its application is limited in hospital context, because hospitals have multiple outputs.
The computational results showed that the parametric method was robust for parameters selection and had advantages for FLA problem.
However, a dollar measure of cost variance (based on a parametric method) may still be helpful as a supplement for reporting purposes, to aid in complex patient management, or to help root cause analysis.
Two types of correlation coefficients are often used in medical research; Pearson's correlation coefficient is a parametric method that is used to quantify the degree of linearity between two continuous variables and Spearman's correlation coefficient is a non-parametric method to quantify the order of rankings between two continuous variables.
In order to obtain a consistent of parameter P0, a non parametric method is use the Delta method of nonparametric kernel functionals of Yacine Ait-Sahalia (1992) as follows,
Trying to solve this puzzle this paper proposes a parametric method of six factors (SF in the remainder of the paper) which is smooth and also flexible enough to fit accurately a pool of spot and forward curves' shapes.
