Quality of Maximum Likelihood Estimates of Parameters in a Log-Linear Rate Model
The authors address four sources of indeterminacy in maximum likelihood estimation (MLE) for multivariate modeling of change using panel data: censoring, caused by changes that occur after the observation period ends; small ...
Methods for Temporal Analysis
The authors review sociological literature describing different perspectives and uses of studies of change in discrete (qualitative) and quantitative outcomes. They show that, contrary to many injunctions, temporal analysis ...
Alternative Estimation Procedures for Event-History Analysis: A Monte Carlo Study
The authors compare alternative procedures for estimating parameters of event-history models: ordinary least squares, Kaplan-Meier least squares, maximum likelihood, and partial likelihood. They report results of simulations ...
