Accommodating Missing Data in Mixture Models for Classification by Opinion-Changing Behavior.
Hill, Jennifer L.
Journal of Educational and Behavioral Statistics, v26 n2 p233-68 Sum 2001
Explored the assumptions implicit in models reflecting three different approaches to missing survey response data using opinion data collected from Swiss citizens at four time points over nearly 2 years. Results suggest that the latently ignorable model has the least restrictive structural assumptions. Discusses the idea of "durable changers," those who change their ideas in a rational, informed manner when presented with new information. (SLD)
