Latent growth curve modeling (LGM) is an indispensable and increasingly ubiquitous approach for modeling longitudinal data. This book introduces LGMtechniques to researchers, provides easy-to-follow, didactic examples of several common growth modeling approaches and highlights recent advancements regarding the treatment of missing data, parameter estimation, and model fit.

Summary

In this book, we have provided an introduction to latent growth curve modeling, illustrated many potential applications with data, and described several extensions and advanced applications that lie outside the basic LGM framework.We demonstrated how models more advanced than simple linear models may be specified ...
