A mixed model allows the incorporation of both fixed and random variables within a statistical analysis. This enables efficient inferences and more information to be gained from the data. The application of mixed models is an increasingly popular way of analysing medical data, particularly in the pharmaceutical industry. There have been many recent advances in mixed modelling, particularly regarding the software and applications. This new edition of a groundbreaking text discusses the latest developments, from updated SAS techniques to the increasingly wide range of applications.
