Growth Curve Analysis. To appear in David Rindskopf
(Ed.), Encyclopedia of Behavioral Statistics. Oxford,

A simple explanation of the mapping of the
multilevel model for change onto the LISREL general
covariance structure model, with a data-based example and a
specimen
LISREL program. Extensions of the basic approach are
listed. The data used in the example in the paper
can be downloaded here.

An
integrated presentation of the latent growth modeling strategies
that were described separately in the two Willett & Sayer
papers (1994, 1995), complete with a new example and lengthier
discussion of several potential extensions of the approach.

This
paper extends the basic mapping strategy described in the
Willett & Sayer paper (1994) to include analyses of the
simultaneous relationships among individual changes taking
place in several domains over time, including a data-example
and sample LISREL programs.

My
first paper on mapping the standard multilevel model for
change onto the general covariance structure model, with
a data-based example and sample LISREL program. The
paper re-interprets the latent growth modeling approach of
McArdle, Meredith, Muthen, Tisak and others from an individual
growth modeling perspective.
