Research project: Models for longitudinal categorical data

Currently Active: 

Longitudinal data arise when repeated observations are made on the same unit, or subject, of observation.

Models and inference procedures need to be sensitive to the possibility of within-subject dependence between observations. Research at S3RI has focussed on modelling binary and ordinal categorical longitudinal data using a flexible family of association/marginal models, the parameters of which have a particularly straightforward interpretation.
