A flexible marginal modelling strategy for non-monotone missing data
Much research has been devoted to modelling strategies for longitudinal data with missingness, recently especially within the missingness not at random context. In this paper, the relatively unexplored but practically highly relevant domain of non-monotone missingness with multivariate ordinal responses is broached. For this, a dedicated version of the multivariate Dale model is formulated. Furthermore, we also assess the sensitivity of these models to their assumptions, by using the technique of global influence.
