Abstract

Observational cohort studies often feature longitudinal data subject to irregular observation. Moreover, the timings of observations may be associated with the underlying disease process and must thus be accounted for when analysing the data. This paper suggests that multiple outputation, which consists of repeatedly discarding excess observations, may be a… (More)
