  • Determination of linear relations between systematic parts of variables with errors of observation the variances of which are unknown 

    Geary, R. C. (Economic & Social Research InstituteDublin, 1996)
    Given a sufficient number of instrumental variables significantly correlated with the investigational variables, consistent estimates of the coefficients of the linear relations can be determined (if they exist), without ...

    This special issue of the Review marks the centenary of the birth of Roy Geary ? Ireland's greatest statistician ? who was born in Drumcondra, Dublin on 11 April, 1896 and died on 8 February, 1983. It is the third occasion ...
  • The family in Irish Census of Population statistics 

    Geary, R. C. (Statistical and Social Inquiry Society of Ireland, 1955)
    It is necessary at the outset to emphasise the experimental character of the paper, the principal object of which is to present the results of a special analysis of a sample of 6,280 families from the Census of Population ...
  • The future population of Saorstat Eireann and some observations on population statistics 

    Geary, R. C. (Statistical and Social Inquiry Society of Ireland, 1936)
    While the principal object of this paper is to place on record the results of a couple of experiments in forecasting population, certain extended digressions have been made into the past (sometimes the distant past) not ...
  • Geary's count of sign changes as a test of unit roots: some further evidence 

    Murphy, Anthony; Geary, R. C. (Economic & Social Research InstituteDublin, 1996)
    In a recent issue of this journal, Honohan (1996) examined the perperformance of Geary's (1970) count of sign changes or x test as a test of unit roots. The test is based on counting the number of times the plot of a series ...
  • Irish population prospects considered from the viewpoint of reproduction rates 

    Geary, R. C. (Statistical and Social Inquiry Society of Ireland, 1941)
    Estimates of future population render explicit the assumption with regard to population statistics, which is implicit in the use of most current statistics, that the tendencies indicated are applicable now and in the ...
  • Methods of sampling applied to Irish statistics 

    Geary, R. C. (Statistical and Social Inquiry Society of Ireland, 1925)
    As the Society is aware, during the recent troubles the system of complete enumeration of agricultural statistics broke down in this country, and since then it has been necessary to rely on estimates derived from a ...
  • More about Geary and the "Taxi" problem 

    Conniffe, Denis; Geary, R. C. (Economic & Social Research InstituteDublin, 1996)
    Geary's treatment of the "taxi" problem was recently re-examined by Spencer and Largey (1993). This paper investigates the topic further, partly to place Geary's estimator in the context of more general methods and also ...
  • The mortality from tuberculosis in Saorstat Eireann: a statistical study 

    Geary, R. C. (Statistical and Social Inquiry Society of Ireland, 1930)
    There were 3,774 deaths from tuberculosis in Saorstat Eireann in 1929, or 128 per 100,000 of the estimated population. For the fourth year in succession declines have been recorded. The rate in 1929 was 6.6% less than ...

    Kennedy, Kieran A.; Geary, R. C. (Economic & Social Research InstituteDublin, 1993)
    R .C. Geary's association with The Economic and Social Research Institute (ESRI) was a long and fruitful one. He was the first Director of the Institute which began in 1960 as The Economic Research Institute (ERI), but by ...
  • Some thoughts on the making of Irish index numbers 

    Geary, R. C. (Statistical and Social Inquiry Society of Ireland, 1946)
    Ireland now possesses a fairly full range of price and quantum index numbers which is not to say that they cannot be improved or their range extended. One of the prime objects of the present paper is, in fact, to invite ...
  • Towards an input-output decision model for Ireland 

    Geary, R. C. (Statistical and Social Inquiry Society of Ireland, 1964)
    As will appear, the experiments, all based on Irish data, have been numerous, so I shall dispense as much as possible with preamble and define decision models as the models which decision model makers make, adapting the ...
  • Variability in agricultural statistics on small and medium-sized farms in an Irish county 

    Geary, R. C. (Statistical and Social Inquiry Society of Ireland, 1957)
    Irish agricultural statistics, going back in an almost unbroken annual sequence for more than a hundred years, are amongst the country's most precious statistical possessions, and indications are that they will assume even ...
  • A visual test for a unit root: Geary's count of sign changes revisited 

    Honohan, Patrick; Geary, R. C. (Economic & Social Research InstituteDublin, 1996)
    Prompted by Geary's (1970) suggestion in a different context, the stationarity of a plotted time series can be assessed by simply counting the number of times the plot crosses the trend line linking the first and last ...
