Missing data in longitudinal clinical trials has justifiably been the target of considerable research. However, missing data is just one of the many considerations in the analysis of longitudinal data, and focus on the data we don’t have should not distract from focus on the data we do have. The statistical theory relevant to analyses of longitudinal data is extensive. However, the greatest difficulty may not be in knowing the theory, but rather in putting the theory into useful practice. Therefore, this book focuses on the most relevant and current theory for the common issues faced in planning and implementing analyses for longitudinal trials.
