Abstract

Withdrawing from a longitudinal investigation is a common problem in epidemiological research. This paper describes a nonparametric method, based on a bootstrap approach, for assessing whether dropouts are missed at random. The basic idea is to compare scores of dropouts and non-dropouts at different assessments using a weighted nonparametric test statistic.
