Tittle: "Using variability in longitudinally-measured variables as a predictor of health outcomes"
Abstact: Longitudinal data has become a major part of the landscape for clinical and epidemiological research. While variance is typically understood as nuisance – the “noise” in “signal-to-noise” – there is increasing evidence that underlying variability in subject-level measures over time may also be important in predicting future health outcomes of interest. However, most statistical methods development has been focused on the use of mean trends obtained from longitudinal data; approaches that incorporate subject-level variability are far rarer, and consequently use of such information is rare. I will provide a review of several methods developed to incorporate variability of predictors in a range of statistical modeling settings, with a deeper dive on a specific application where we consider how a woman’s mean and variability trends of multivariate hormonal measures during menopausal transition can impact measures of post-menopausal health outcomes.
