A general methodology for the analysis of experiments with repeated measurement of categorical data

Biometrics. 1977 Mar;33(1):133-58.


This paper is concerned with the analysis of multivariate categorical data which are obtained from repeated measurement experiments. An expository discussion of pertinent hypotheses for such situations is given, and appropriate test statistics are developed through the application of weighted least squares methods. Special consideration is given to computational problems associated with the manipulation of large tables including the treatment of empty cells. Three applications of the methodology are provided.
