Testing for random dropouts in repeated measurement data

Abstract

Diggle (1989, Biometrics 45, 1255-1258) proposes a test for random dropouts in repeated measurement data when the experiment has a completely randomized design. It is argued here that logistic regression is a comparable but more flexible technique for studying the occurrence of dropouts.
