Abstract (english)

Thurstonian and Bradley-Terry models are the most commonly applied models in the analysis of paired comparison data. Since their introduction, numerous developments of those models have been proposed in different areas. This paper provides an updated overview of these extensions, including how to account for object- and subject-specic covariates and how to deal with ordinal paired comparison data. Special emphasis is given to models for dependent comparisons. Although these models are more realistic, their use is complicated by numerical difficulties. We therefore concentrate on implementation issues. In particular, a pairwise likelihood approach is explored for models for dependent paired comparison data and a simulation study is carried out to compare the performance of maximum pairwise likelihood with other methods, such as limited information estimation. The methodology is illustrated throughout using a real data set about university paired comparisons performed by students.
