A note on the identifiability of latent variable models for mixed longitudinal data. (English) Zbl 1455.62102

Summary: In the present study, the identifiability problem is considered for a general form of the joint model for two types of responses. The presented three theorems make it easier to verify identifiability. The ideas or techniques from the proofs can be used to extend the work to other joint models.
