Joint modelling techniques have seen great advances in the recent years, with several types of joint models having been developed in literature that can handle a wide range of applications. This special issue of Statistical Methods in Medical Research presents some recent developments from this field. This introductory article contains some background material and highlights the contents of the contributions.

    Random coefficient-dependent (RCD) missingness is a non-ignorable mechanism through which missing data can arise in longitudinal designs. RCD, for which we cannot test, is a problematic form of missingness that occurs if subject-specific random effects correlate with propensity for missingness...

    In many longitudinal studies, evaluating the effect of a binary or continuous predictor variable on the rate of change of the outcome, i.e. slope, is often of primary interest. Sample size determination of these studies, however, is complicated by the expectation that missing data will occur due...

    We discuss inference for longitudinal clinical trials subject to possibly informative dropout. A selection of available methods is reviewed for the simple case of trials with two timepoints. Using data from two such clinical trials, each with two treatments, we demonstrate that different...

    Longitudinal experiments often involve multiple outcomes measured repeatedly within a set of study participants. While many questions can be answered by modeling the various outcomes separately, some questions can only be answered in a joint analysis of all of them. In this article, we will...

    This paper reviews models for incomplete continuous and categorical longitudinal data. In terms of Rubin's classification of missing value processes we are specifically concerned with the problem of nonrandom missingness. A distinction is drawn between the classes of selection and...

    We clarify the key concept of missingness at random in incomplete data analysis. We first distinguish between data being missing at random and the missingness mechanism being a missing-at-random one, which we call missing always at random and which is more restrictive.We further discuss how, in...

    Clustered multinomial responses are common in public health studies. In this situation, the baseline logit random effects model is usually suggested as a general modelling approach. When nonignorable missing outcomes exist, naïve methods such as complete case analysis or likelihood methods...

    This paper addresses some aspects of the analysis of cross-over trials with missing or incomplete data. A literature review on the topic reveals that many proposals provide correct results under the missing completely at random assumption while only some consider the more general missing at...
