Multivariate data occurs in a wide range of fields, with ever more flexible model specifications being proposed, often within a multivariate generalised linear mixed effects (MGLME) framework. In this article, we describe an extended framework, encompassing multiple outcomes of any type, each of which could be repeatedly measured (longitudinal), with any number of levels, and with any number of random effects at each level. Many standard distributions are described, as well as non-standard user…

merlin: An R package for Mixed Effects Regression for Linear, Nonlinear and User-defined models
The R package merlin performs flexible joint modelling of hierarchical multi-outcome data and allows for the estimation of models with unlimited numbers of continuous, binary, count and time-to-event outcomes, with unlimited levels of nested random effects.
Multilevel mixed-effects parametric survival analysis: Estimation, simulation, and application
The community-contributed stmixed command serves as both an alternative to Stata’s official mestreg command and a complimentary command with substantial extensions for fitting multilevel survival models.
Multivariate Generalized Linear Mixed-Effects Models for the Analysis of Clinical Trial–Based Cost-Effectiveness Data
The generalized linear mixed-model framework is extended to enable simultaneous modeling of multiple outcomes of mixed data types, such as those typically encountered in trial-based economic evaluations, taking into account correlation of outcomes due to repeated measurements on the same individual and other clustering effects.
merlin—A unified modeling framework for data analysis and methods development in Stata
The challenges in statistics and data science are rapidly growing because access to a multitude of data types continues to increase, as well as the sheer quantity of data. Analysts are now presented
Relaxing the assumption of constant transition rates in a multi-state model in hospital epidemiology
It is concluded that methods and software are readily available for obtaining predictions from multi-state models that do not assume constant transition rates and the multistate package in Stata facilitates a range of predictions with confidence intervals, which can provide a more comprehensive understanding of the data.
Mixed‐effects models for health care longitudinal data with an informative visiting process: A Monte Carlo simulation study
Through Monte Carlo simulation, this work compares different analytical approaches proposed to account for an informative visiting process to assess whether they lead to unbiased results and formalises a joint model for the observation process and the longitudinal outcome within an extended joint modelling framework.

Multi-state survival analysis considers several potential events of interest along a disease pathway. Such analyses are crucial to model complex patient trajectories and are increasingly being used
Comparison of statistical methods for the analysis of recurrent adverse events in the presence of non-proportional hazards and unobserved heterogeneity: a simulation study
This work investigated whether the lognormal shared frailty models with restricted cubic splines and non-proportional hazards (LSF-NPH) assumption can improve estimates for both frailty variance and treatment effect compared to the conventional inverse Gaussian share frailty model with proportional hazard (ISF-PH), in the presence of time-dependent treatment effects and unobserved patient heterogeneity.
Measurement Error as a Missing Data Problem
The link between measurement error and missing data is made and methods for correcting for bias due to covariate measurement error with reference to this link are described, including regression calibration, maximum likelihood and Bayesian methods, and multiple imputation.
Joint modelling of multivariate longitudinal clinical laboratory safety outcomes, concomitant medication and clinical adverse events: application to artemisinin-based treatment during pregnancy clinical trial
Although the AEs did not vary across the treatments, the joint model yielded efficient AE incidence estimates compared to the Poisson model and showed a positive relationship between the AE and concomitant medication but not with laboratory outcomes.
