Repeated measures example

Wolfinger rat data

Wolfinger (1996) summarises a range of variance structures that can be fitted to repeated measures data and demonstrates the models using five weights taken weekly on 27 rats subjected to 3 treatments.

This command file demonstrates a multivariate analysis of the five repeated measures. Note that the two dimensional structure for common error meets the requirement of independent units and is correctly ordered traits with units.
