Markov Model with Covariate Dependence for Repeated Measures by M Ataharul Islam, Rafiqul Islam and Shahariar Huda pdf free download. In recent years, there has been a growing interest in the longitudinal data analysis techniques. The longitudinal analysis covers a wide range of potential areas of applications in the fields of survival analysis and other biomedical applications, epidemiology, reliability and other engineering applications, agricultural statistics, environment, meteorology, biological sciences, econometric analysis, time series analysis, social sciences, demography, etc.

In all these fields, the problem of analyzing adequately the data from repeated measures poses formidable challenge to the users and researchers. The longitudinal data is comprised of repeated measures on both outcome or response variables and independent variables or
covariates. In the past, some important developments have provided ground for analyzing such data. The developments of the generalized linear models, the generalized estimating equations, multistate models based on proportional or nonproportional hazards, Markov chain
based models, and transitional models, etc. are noteworthy.

In some cases, attempts were also made to link the time series approaches to analysis of repeated measures data. At this backdrop, we observe that there is still a great demand for clear understanding of the models for repeated measures in the context of the first or higher order Markov chain. More importantly, until now there is not much available literature in modeling the repeated measures data linking the Markov chains with underlying covariates or risk factors.

Whatever little has been published is scattered over various specialized journals that researchers and users from other fields may find difficulty in accessing. In other words, there is a serious lack of books on the covariate dependent Markov models where transition probabilities can be explained in terms of the underlying factors of interest. This book provides in a single volume, a systematic illustration of the development of the covariate dependent Markov models.

The estimation and test procedures are also discussed with examples from the real life. Outlines of the computer programs used for these examples are also provided with brief illustrations. The detailed programs will be provided on request. This book is suitable for both the users of longitudinal data analysis as well as for researchers in various fields. Markov Model with Covariate Dependence for Repeated Measures by M Ataharul Islam pdf free download. Although the examples provided are from the health sciences, similar examples could be obtained from all the disciplines we have mentioned earlier without changing the underlying theory. The applications are provided in details along with the theoretical background for employing such models so that the users can apply the models independently on the basis of the theory and applications provided in the book. Both statisticians and users of statistics with some background in using longitudinal data analysis problems will find the approach easily comprehensible.
