An effective technique for data analysis in the social sciences

The recent explosion in longitudinal data in the social sciences highlights the need for this timely publication. Latent Curve Models: A Structural Equation Perspective provides an effective technique to analyze latent curve models (LCMs). This type of data features random intercepts and slopes that permit each case in a sample to have a different trajectory over time. Furthermore, researchers can include variables to predict the parameters governing these trajectories.

The authors synthesize a vast amount of research and findings and, at the same time, provide original results. The book ... Read more

This text has been thoroughly class-tested and makes extensive use of pedagogical tools to aid readers in mastering and applying LCMs quickly and easily to their own data sets. Key features include:

  • Chapter introductions and summaries that provide a quick overview of highlights
  • Empirical examples provided throughout that allow readers to test their newly found knowledge and discover practical applications
  • Conclusions at the end of each chapter that stress the essential points that readers need to understand for advancement to more sophisticated topics
  • Extensive footnoting that points the way to the primary literature for more information on particular topics

With its emphasis on modeling and the use of numerous examples, this is an excellent book for graduate courses in latent trajectory models as well as a supplemental text for courses in structural modeling. This book is an excellent aid and reference for researchers in quantitative social and behavioral sciences who need to analyze longitudinal data.
