Table 3: Simulation results for the completecase MLE, the MLE, and the pseudoconditional likelihood method. Here RMSE represents root mean squared error. The results were based on 2,000 runs. There were 2×2×2 = 8 disease subtypes. The model for the intercepts was misspecified. The missingness probabilities depend on the covariate. This is Scenario 1c, where the true values of some of the secondorder contrasts of the logodds ratio parameters were not zero.
