Reboussin, Beth A.; Reboussin, David M.; Liang, Kung-Yee; Anthony, James C.
Multivariate Behavioral Research, v33 n4 p457-78 1998
Methods for modeling transitions between health-risk states over time when multiple indicators of health risk are available are discussed, and a latent transition model is presented as an alternative to approaches that analyze indicators separately or use summative indices. The approach is illustrated through a self-report study of weapons-carrying behavior. (SLD)
