Abstract:

This lecture will provide an overview of and some detailed results on econometric approaches to modeling multidimensional health outcomes. The topics to be addressed include: rationales for modeling multidimensional health outcomes; modeling joint probabilities of multidimensional outcomes; models for dimension-reducing aggregates of multidimensional outcomes; and models for composite and co-primary endpoints. Computational considerations are assessed throughout. How Will Manning's work addressed some of these topics will be considered.
