Longitudinal data are ubiquitous across Medicine, Public Health, Public Policy, Psychology, Political Science, Biology, Sociology and Education, yet many longitudinal data sets remain improperly analyzed. This book teaches the art and statistical science of modern longitudinal data analysis. The author emphasizes specifying, understanding, and interpreting longitudinal data models. He inspects the longitudinal data graphically, analyzes the time trend and covariates, models the covariance matrix, and then draws conclusions. Covariance models covered include random effects, autoregressive, autoregressive moving average, antedependence, factor analytic, and completely unstructured models among others. Longer expositions explore: an introduction to and critique of simple non-longitudinal analyses of longitudinal data, missing data concepts, diagnostics, and simultaneous modeling of two longitudinal variables. Applications and issues for random effects models cover estimation, shrinkage, clustered data, models for binary and count data and residuals and residual plots. Shorter sections include a general discussion of how computational algorithms work, handling transformed data, and basic design issues. This book requires a solid regression course as background and is particularly intended for the final year of a Biostatistics or Statistics Masters degree curriculum. The mathematical prerequisite is generally low, mainly assuming familiarity with regression analysis in matrix form. Doctoral students in Biostatistics or Statistics, applied researchers and quantitative doctoral students in disciplines such as Medicine, Public Health, Public Policy, Psychology, Political Science, Biology, Sociology and Education will find this book invaluable. The book has many figures and tables illustrating longitudinal data and numerous homework problems. The associated web site contains many longitudinal data sets, examples of computer code, and labs to re-enforce the material. From the reviews: "...This book is extremely well presented and it has been written in a style that makes its reading really pleasant and enjoyable...I highly recommend Modeling Longitudinal Data as a good reference book for anyone interested in looking into the art and statistical science of modern longitudinal data analysis." Journal of Applied Statistics, December 2005 "The book is clearly written and well presented. The author's accumulated experience in presenting the material comes over. On balance, this is one of the books which anyone about to teach a practical course in longitudinal data analysis should consider adopting as the course text." Short Book Reviews of the ISI, June 2006 "...Modeling Longitudinal Data is a welcome addition to the vast literature on longitudinal data analysis. The book requires little in terms of prerequisites but offers a great deal." Zhigang Zhang for the Journal of the American Statistical Association, December 2006 "Overall, Robert Weiss's book can be used as an excellent textbook for a first master-level course in longitudinal data analysis in a statistics or biostatistics program, or as a self-study book for applied researchers interested in this area...The style is very clear, concepts are explained in an engaging way and amply illustrated, and the chapters on covariate selection and modeling the variance-covariance matrix are definite assets." Ralitza Gueorgueiva for Biostatistics, September 2006
