In these studies, the aim is to investigate the effects of explanatory variables on these time-related responses. A regression analysis for these types of data must allow for the correlation among responses during the time. To analyze such ordinal-nominal responses, using a proposed weighting approach, an ordinal and nominal mixed transition model is proposed and then maximum likelihood method is used to find the parameter estimates. The likelihood function in this method is partitioned to make possible the use of existing software.
