Multivariate Response Data

We shall use an extension of the model for repeated measures data to illustrate how to model multivariate response data. Consider model (6) where we have data on successive occasions for each individual and in addition, for some or all individuals, we have a measure, say, of their final adult height y32), and their (log) income at age 25 years, y42), where the superscript denotes a measurement made at level 2. We can include these variables as further responses by extending (6) as follows:

si]

= £ $]j + eij h=0

$0]

= $0 + U0j

$1

= $1 + U1j

h

= $2 + U2j

h

= $3

$4]

= $4

v(2) y 3]

= a3 + U3j

v(2)

= a4 + U4j
