We welcome you to the webpage that we have created to support our recent
book, Applied Longitudinal Data Analysis (ALDA).
We intend ALDA to be a professional
book for empirical researchers and graduate students in the behavioral,
social, and biomedical sciences. It offers an accessible in-depth presentation
of two popular statistical methods for analyzing longitudinal data:
multilevel modeling of individual change and hazard/survival modeling
for event occurrence in both discrete- and continuous-time.
ALDA, using real data from published studies, we take
you step-by-step through complete longitudinal data-analyses, from
