Abstract: A flexible subclass of graphical Markov models is now called 'traceable regressions'. These are sequences of joint response, conditional distributions for which regression graphs permit one to trace pathways of dependence. These methods are used to analyze and interpret data from a prospective study of child development, known as the 'Mannheim Study of Children at Risk'.
