Sandwich corrected standard errors?


#1

What are the chances that HAIL at some point will include sandwich corrected SE’s for robust inference in dataset which contain family members?

Best,

Hi Michel,
This is something which I don’t expect to ever be super high priority for the development team, but that doesn’t mean Hail will never include a sandwich correction – in an open-source project, features arrive when someone adds them!

We do have a linear mixed regression method, which should account for family structure in a first-class way. Is there a particular reason that this model won’t work for your analysis?
