sub-heading should read:

In the two statements
of the general linear null hypothesis beneath the third equation,
the symbol "0" should be bolded, as follows:
the central equation, the results of the hypothesis test are reported
incorrectly. The text to the end of the paragraph should be replaced
with the following: "Conducting this test, we find that we
can reject the null hypothesis at the usual level of statistical
significance (chi-square=6.23, d.f.=1, p=.013). We conclude
that these average true change trajectories do not converge by
age-16. In other words, the alcohol consumption of children of
non-alcoholic parents with low CPEER does not catch up
to the alcohol consumption of children of non-alcoholic parents
with high CPEER."
||Entry in last row,

||In the estimation
of the partial correlation between initial status and rate of

The actual computation of the coefficient is correct.
In Equation (7.13),
the variance of the composite residual at time-j that is the
subject of the equation should not have a "hat" over
it, as it represents a population parameter, and not an estimate.
Then, beneath the
next paragraph, where we substitute estimated values for the
population variance components into the two pieces of Equation
7.13, the substitution into the first piece is correct, but
perhaps would have been clearer if we had written it as -(-178.23/107.25)
rather than as (-178.23/-107.25).
