    Problems Fitting Latent Growth Curve Model for BMI

    Hi all, I have a question regarding panel data--collected biennially--from the National Longitudinal Study of Youth. (I use STATA 13.0 for Mac.) I've been trying--and failing--to fit a latent growth curve model for respondent Body Mass Index (BMI). Respondents were empaneled as children...

    Latent Growth Curve and covariates

    I'm examining latent growth curves in Mplus. My dependent variable is continuous, measured over three time points. I have a great unconditional model, and now I want to examine multiple time-invariant predictors on the latent intercept and slope. If I add the predictors, how do I evaluate if...

    Writing equations for latent growth curve models

    Hi all, I'm a PhD student currently working on an independent research project using latent growth curve modeling. This is my first time using this statistic, and I was wondering if anyone had a good reference that discusses how to form the statistical (i.e., mathematical) equations. I like...
