Workshop on ‘Latent Growth Curve Analysis”
Presented at the Western Psychological Association Annual Meeting, April 2017
This two-hour workshop provides an introduction to latent growth curve analysis. These models are popular for the analysis of longitudinal data as they offer many options for understanding how individuals change over time. This workshop introduces participants to latent growth curve models for continuous and categorical variables. Topics include linear and nonlinear growth models, discrete and continuous measures of time, and how to include time-varying and between-subject covariates. Examples will help to illustrate how to fit these models using SAS and Mplus.
Presenter: Shelley Blozis, Professor of Psychology, UC Davis
