Multilevel modelling of repeated ordinal measures: an application to attitudes to divorce

Multilevel modelling of repeated ordinal measures: an application to attitudes to divorce
Multilevel modelling of repeated ordinal measures: an application to attitudes to divorce
This paper demonstrates the use of multilevel modelling techniques for an ordinal response. Using repeated measures of divorce attitude from the 1991-1996 waves of the British Household Panel Survey (BHPS) we investigate the factors predicting attitude to divorce and test whether changes in marital status are associated with changes in attitude to divorce. The paper discusses the methodological issues arising from the multilevel modelling of an ordinal outcome and compares the results obtained using marginal, quasi-likelihood and Bayesian methods. The paper demonstrates how the multilevel modelling approach deals with the complex pattern of attrition and intermittent non-response found in the BHPS.

Abstract

This paper demonstrates the use of multilevel modelling techniques for an ordinal response. Using repeated measures of divorce attitude from the 1991-1996 waves of the British Household Panel Survey (BHPS) we investigate the factors predicting attitude to divorce and test whether changes in marital status are associated with changes in attitude to divorce. The paper discusses the methodological issues arising from the multilevel modelling of an ordinal outcome and compares the results obtained using marginal, quasi-likelihood and Bayesian methods. The paper demonstrates how the multilevel modelling approach deals with the complex pattern of attrition and intermittent non-response found in the BHPS.
