A smoothing cohort model in age-period-cohort analysis with applications to homicide arrest rates and lung cancer mortality rates
This article considers the effects of age, period, and cohort in social studies and chronic disease epidemiology through age-period-cohort (APC) analysis. These factors are linearly dependent; thus, the multiple classification model, a regression model that takes these factors as covariates in APC analysis, suffers from an identifiability problem with multiple estimators. A data set of homicide arrest rates is used to illustrate the problem. A smoothing cohort model is proposed that allows...[Show more]
