Using modern statistical measurement error methodologies and analysis, we aim to efficiently and accurately discover and characterize predictive models of responses associated with abnormal growth development in young children and adults. This proposal is unique in scope and vision by addressing health issues that threaten the sustainability of the health care system.

The surveys being developed by government, health and social science organizations have increased in complexity and as a result, the data that is collected is similarly more complicated. Thus, this project focuses on developing new tools to address issues which arise during the analysis of this complex data including longitudinal data, information which is based on a set of repeated observations of an individual, or group of individuals, over time.
