Deviance Analysis of Age-period-cohort Models

Date: 03 September 2014

Age-period-cohort models for Lexis diagrams are considered. The identifi- cation problem is addressed by reparametrizing the models in terms of freely varying parameters. The reparametrisation covers all three Lexis diagrams. A new plot of the unidentified time effects is suggested and interpreted. Deviance analysis covering a wide range of sub-models is presented. The methods are applied to Belgian lung cancer data.
