Identifying profiles of physical activity behaviours in the presence of non-ignorable missing data

Physical activity and inactivity are two independent dimensions over which children aggregate into distinct behavioural profiles. Read my new article ‘Probabilistic principal component analysis to identify profiles of physical activity behaviours in the presence of non-ignorable missing data’ in the Journal of the Royal Statistical Society: Series C at http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/rssc.12105/abstract.

Linear quantile mixed model – Statistics & Computing

lqmm_statcompThis paper describes LQMMs, including a few practical examples. I’m working on a (non-technical) paper to show how to apply these methods using the package lqmm.


Day on Quantile Regression at the Royal Statistical Society – London, 29 May

An exciting one-day meeting organized by the RSS General Applications Section will take place in London on 29th May 2013. In the morning, the workshop will have a tutorial in quantile regression with hands-on using the R package quantreg. The research session in the afternoon will have three excellent speakers.
