LVMMCOR: A Latent Variable Model for Mixed Continuous and Ordinal Responses

A model for mixed ordinal and continuous responses is presented where the heteroscedasticity of the variance of the continuous response is also modeled. In this model ordinal response can be dependent on the continuous response. The aim is to use an approach similar to that of Heckman (1978) for the joint modelling of the ordinal and continuous responses. With this model, the dependence between responses can be taken into account by the correlation between errors in the models for continuous and ordinal responses
