|Abstract:||A three-state non-homogeneous Markov chain (MC) of order m≥0, denoted M(m), was previously introduced by the author. The model was used to analyze work resumption among sick-listed patients. It was demonstrated that wrong assumptions about the Markov order m and about homogeneity can seriously invalidate predictions of future health states. In this paper focus is on tests (estimation) of m and of homogeneity. When testing for Markov order it is suggested to test M(m) against M(m+1) with m sequen... more|
