Epidemiological Methods in Life Course Research

Andrew Pickles, Barbara Maughan, and Michael Wadsworth

Abstract

Life course epidemiology is developing rapidly in the context of new knowledge about the biology of development and ageing and gene-environment interplay. This book is concerned with design, measurement, and analysis of life course data. Study design chapters are concerned with models of the life course development of risk, the effect of individual differences, the study of genetic effects, and intervention in life course designs. Analysis chapters deal with time-varying exposure, missingness, analysis of multivariate outcomes, estimation of causality, structural equation modelling, and trajec ... More

Keywords: life course, time-varying exposure, missingness, multivariate outcomes, causality, equation modelling, trajectory analysis, ageing, epidemiological design
