STATISTICAL MODELLING OF QUALITY OF LIFE MEASUREMENT

calanque, Luminy
The international conference will take place at the Faculty of Science of Marseille, Luminy (Amphi 12) on September 12-13, 2013

The seminar concerns statistical analysis of quality of life obtained from patients with chronic diseases.
The "quality of life" being non observable, is generally quantified by means of the responses to standardized questionnaires completed by the subjects. Questionnaires contain tens of items classified by the quality of life dimensions they should measure. Such data arise with several problems such as the selection of informative and non redondant items, missing data, comparing differents questionnaires results, modeling the score computed from the items, modelling the trend of such scores through longitudinal studies.

This seminar will put together scientists coming from different disciplins: mathematics, health, epidemiology, psychology,...It aims to present through talks given by experts the state of the art of the main problems arising from QoL data measurements. Mathematicians will give insight in the methodological developments in this area.

Three topics are covered in this seminar:

    • The missing data treatment.
    • Items selection, item banking and Computerized Adaptive Testing.
    • Modeling the Response Shift.

Two teams are associated in the organization of this meeting: the statistics team of the Mathematical Institute of Luminy (FRE3529) and the Research Unit "Public Health, Quality of Life and Chronic Diseases" (EA3279), Faculty of medicine La Timone, together with the National Platform Quality of Life and Cancer. Other teams and researchers coming from France and abroad from various disciplines contribute also to the event.

The meeting is sponsored by the National Platform Quality of Life, the merging team CUD QV IReSP, Aix Marseille University and the French Statistical Society.

Target audience: statisticians, biostatisticians, epidemiologists, public health physicians, resarechers engineers and PhD students.

Expected audience: Approximately 100 participants.
