Keywords: multivariate logistic, multivariate probit, longitudinal binary responses


The data is a subset from the Six Cities study, a longitudinal study of the health effects of air pollution. The data contain repeated binary measures of the wheezing status (1 = yes, 0 = no) for each of 537 children from Stuebenville, Ohio, at ages 7, 8, 9 and 10 years. Also measured is whether or not the mother was a smoker during the first year of the study.
