Linear Models in Practice provides a comprehensive treatment of linear mixed models, a technique devised to analyze continuous correlated data. It focuses on examples from designed experiments and longitudinal studies. The target audience includes applied statisticians and biomedical researchers in industry, public health organizations, contract research organizations, and academia. Linear Models in Practice is explanatory rather than mathematical rigorous. Although most analyses were done with the MIXED procedure of the SAS software package, and many of its features are clearly elucidated, considerable effort was spent in presenting the data analyses in a software-independent fashion.
