Latent Variables Analysis
Applications for Developmental Research

Edited by:


October 1994 | 472 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
In this volume, leading researchers examine how latent variables can be incorporated in a variety of data-analysis strategies, such as structural equation modelling, regression analysis, log-linear modelling and prediction analysis. The contributors also discuss how latent variables analysis can be applied in developmental psychology research using methods such as cohort-time of measurement-age analysis, log-linear modelling of behaviour genetics hypothesis and analyses of repeatedly observed state measures. Detailed explanations of computations and software packages are included with each statistical method.
