Longitudinal data comprise repeated measurements on the same patients taken over time. How should such data be analyzed? Two approaches are common: marginal models and mixed models. These are different kinds of models that yield different interpretations and answer different research questions.
In this session of the TraCS Biostatistics Seminar series, you will learn about the differences as well as the areas of overlap of these statistical models. It will clarify the big difference between linear and generalized linear models, and help you decide which type to use in a given study.
