Ivy Jansen, Ann Van den Troost, Geert Molenberghs, Ad A. Vermulst, and Jan R. M. Gerris, Modeling Partially Incomplete Marital Satisfaction Data, Sociological Methods & Research 2006 35: 113-136.

The authors analyze data on marital satisfaction, obtained from couples at two distinct moments in time (1990, 1995). The data are of a bivariate longitudinal type. Moreover, some couples provide incomplete records only, usually because the 1995 follow-up interview has not taken place. The authors propose a hierarchical modeling strategy that takes all these features into account and is more generally valid than a classical complete case or single imputation-based strategy.

Key Words: complete case analysis • direct likelihood • dropout • imputation • missing at random • missing completely at random • missing data
