    • Alternative Estimation Procedures for Event-History Analysis: A Monte Carlo Study 

      Carroll, Glenn R; Hannan, Michael T; Tuma, Nancy Brandon; Warsavage, Barbara (2015-08-15)
      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 ...
    • Methods for Temporal Analysis 

      Hannan, Michael T; Tuma, Nancy Brandon (2015-08-15)
      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 ...
    • Quality of Maximum Likelihood Estimates of Parameters in a Log-Linear Rate Model 

      Fennell, Mary L; Tuma, Nancy Brandon; Hannan, Michael T (2015-08-15)
      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 ...
