Book summary: Here is an essential introduction to the latest arsenal of methods available to students and practicing scientists who undertake longitudinal and other studies that collect repeated measurements for subsequent analysis. The book presents the general context of repeated measurements and introduces--through a large number of concrete examples, including data tables--the three basic types of response variables: continuous (normal), categorical and count, and duration variables. The ways in which such repeated observations are interdependent, through heterogeneity and time dependence, are discussed. The author also develops a useful framework for constructing suitable models and introduces concepts of multivariate distributions and stochastic processes necessary to appreciate the underpinnings and power of repeated measurements analyses. The book concludes with an extensive bibliography of the repeated measurement literature that will aid readers interested in finding source materials. Written by a distinguished statistician, this book is a much-needed and practical guide to the most current repeated measurements techniques available. It will be welcomed by students, applied statisticians, biostatisticians, biologists, medical researchers, econometricians, sociologists, and psychologists.
