Longitudinal data: example 2 Alzheimer’s disease trial. Alzheimer’s disease is a progressive incurable deterioration of intellect and memory. A clinical trial compared lecithin (dietary supplement) against placebo, both given as daily for 4 months; 22 patients in lecithin group, 25 in placebo group. Participant took a memory test at baseline (Frst visit), and end of each month. Score is number of words recalled from a list, so higher scores are better. idno lecithin score1 score2 score3 score4 score5 102 0 1 5 1 4 1 3 1 3 201 4 1 2 1 2 1 0 1 0 30 75565 40 6 1 0987 ( Source: Der and Everitt, Ch. 11) 7 Plot individual proFles and correlation scatterplot matrix.

ANOVA and regression assume independent observations, hence don’t apply correctly to correlated data. Model for longitudinal observations must include within-subject correlation.
