  13. BIODEMOGRAPHY OF HEALTH, SOCIAL FACTORS AND LIFE CHANGE
    Noreen Goldman; Fiscal Year: 2007
    ..Our analytical strategy relies largely on two multivariate approaches: 1) generalized linear models for longitudinal data; and 2) grade of membership models. The data from this study will be made available as a public use data set. ..
