Last modified: 2023-07-01


After a review of the class of discrete latent variable models in terms of formulation and estimation methods, recent advances and perspectives regarding these models are illustrated. We consider in detail the stochastic block model for social networks and models for spatio-temporal data. Among these developments, we discuss, in particular, the analysis of longitudinal compositional data about  expenditures of the Spanish regions over several decades.
