Summary This book combines longitudinal research and letent variable research, i.e. it explains how longitudinal studies with objectives formulated in terms of latent variable should be carried out, with an emphasis on detailing how the methods are applied. Because longitudinal research with latent variables currently utilizes different approaches with different histories, different types of research questions, and different computer programs to perform the analysis, the book is divided into nine chapters. Starting with (a) some back-ground information about the specific approach (a short history and the main publications), each chapter then (b) describes the type of research questions the approach is able to answer, (c) provides statistical and mathematical explanations of the models used in the data analysis, (d) discusses the input and output of the programs used, and (e) provides one or more examples with typical data sets, allowing the readers to apply the programs themselves. --Book Jacket
