Non parametric maximum likelihood (npml), Advanced Statistics

Non parametric maximum likelihood (NPML) is a likelihood approach which does not need the specification of the full parametric family for the data. Usually, the non parametric maximum likelihood is a multinomial likelihood on a sample. Simple examples comprise the empirical cumulative distribution function and the product-limit estimator. It is also used to relax the parametric assumptions regarding random effects in the multilevel models. It is losely related to the empirical likelihood.
