LEON A, Alba Luz  and  JAIMES BARRAGAN, Fabián. Clinical and epidemiological round. Longitudinal data analysis. Iatreia [online]. 2015, vol.28, n.3, pp.325-331. ISSN 0121-0793.

Longitudinal data analysis (LDA) refers to the methods designed to evaluate repeated measurements within an individual. LDA is an appropriate tool to address the process of change in health and disease and also to evaluate the efficacy of interventions. We present the main LDA models as well as their advantages and some clinical examples from recent medical literature.

Keywords : Longitudinal Data Analysis; General Estimating Equations; Mixed Models; Repeated Measurements.
