Abstract The purpose of this paper is to examine the properties of several bias-corrected estimators for generalized linear measurement error models, along with the naive estimator, in some special settings. In particular, we consider logistic regression, poisson regression and exponential-gamma models where the covariates are subject to measurement error. Monte Carlo experiments are conducted to compare the relative performance of the estimators in terms of several criteria. The results indicate that the naive estimator of slope is biased towards zero by a factor increasing with the magnitude of slope and measurement error as well as the sample size. It is found that none of the biased-corrected estimators always outperforms the others, and that their small sample properties typically depend on the underlying model assumptions.
