Many statistical models over a discrete sample space often face the computational difficulty of the normalization constant. Because of that, the maximum likelihood estimator does not work. In order to circumvent the computation difficulty, alternative estimators such as pseudo-likelihood and composite likelihood that require only a local computation over the sample space have been proposed. In this paper, we present a theoretical analysis of such localized estimators. The asymptotic variance ofdoi:10.3390/e18070273 fatcat:dyjtmlzy75dt7lc35z5koev6bu
