Gerontologic Biostatistics: Modeling Longitudinal Ordinal Data in Aging

Event Location
Professor Heather G. Allore
Yale University

In this talk Professor Allore will present the evolution of longitudinal modeling in the field of aging using ordinal data of functional disability.  The presentation will demonstrate the progression from time to event models to multistate models and recurrent events, latent trajectory and growth mixture models.  In addition, Bayesian joint longitudinal modeling with person-specific shared random intercepts will illuminate how survival estimates vary across modelling approaches.
