Latent variable analysis and partial correlation graphs for multivariate time series


  • Fried, Roland
  • Didelez, Vanessa


We investigate the possibility of exploiting partial correlation graphs for identifying interpretable latent variables underlying a multivariate time series. It is shown how the collapsibility and separation properties of partial correlation graphs can be used to understand the relation between a factor model and the structure among the observable variables.
