Resource description

In this article, we discuss a latent variable model with continuous latent variables for manifest variables that are a mixture of categorical and survival outcomes. Models for censored and uncensored survival data are discussed. The model allows for covariate effects both on the manifest variables (direct effects) and on the latent variable(s) (indirect effects). The methodological developments are motivated by a demographic application: an exploration of women’s fertility preferences and family planning behaviour in Bangladesh.
