For example, Duncan et al. 12 to examine the change in alcohol use over the 5-year period between ages 12 and 17. Like other planned missingness designs, the cohort-sequential design yields MCAR data. The cohort-sequential design is extremely useful for developmental research but has an important limitation. Unlike the other designs in this section, the cohort-sequential design includes variable pairs that are completely missing. 12 yields missing data for six variable pairs: ages 12 and 15, 12 and 16, 12 and 17, 13 and 16, 13 and 17, and 14 and 17.
This association can occur for two reasons. First, it is possible that the probability of missing data is directly related to the incomplete outcome variable. For example, if the company terminates a number of individuals for poor performance prior to their 6-month evaluation, then there is a direct relationship between job performance and the propensity for missing data. However, an association between job performance and missingness can also occur because these variables are mutually correlated with an unmeasured variable.
