The analysis of multivariate longitudinal data: a review.

Journal Article (Journal Article;Review)

Longitudinal experiments often involve multiple outcomes measured repeatedly within a set of study participants. While many questions can be answered by modeling the various outcomes separately, some questions can only be answered in a joint analysis of all of them. In this article, we will present a review of the many approaches proposed in the statistical literature. Four main model families will be presented, discussed and compared. Focus will be on presenting advantages and disadvantages of the different models rather than on the mathematical or computational details.
