A Review of Estimation Methods for Latent Variable Models

WithIrini Moustaki

This chapter reviews estimationmethods for the generalized linear latent variablemodels (GLLVM) for cross-sectional and longitudinal data. The theoretical formulation of the GLLVM for cross-sectional data is discussed in Moustaki and Knott (2000) and Bartholomew et al. (2011), and for longitudinal data in Dunson (2003) and Cagnone et al. (2009).
