||Evaluating composite health measures using Rasch modelling: An illustrative example
||2001, Vol.46, No.6, p.369-378. Illus. 34 ref.
||Rasch modelling is a statistical framework that addresses the issues of uni-dimensionality and invariance. The purpose of this article is to explore the possibilities of applying Rasch modelling to epidemiology and public health research in order to evaluate composite measures of health. It provides an overview of Rasch modelling using examples based on adolescent survey data. It shows how the various elements operate across different samples and subgroups. It concludes that Rasch modelling may serve as a useful tool in the evaluation and the development of composite health measures intended to be used in epidemiology and public health research.
