內容簡介top Higher-order Growth Curves and Mixture Modeling With Mplus 簡介 This practical introduction to second-order and growth mixture models using Mplus introduces simple and complex techniques through incremental steps. The authors extend latent growth curves to second-order growth curve and mixture models and then combine the two. To maximize understanding, each model is presented with basic structural equations, figures with associated syntax that highlight what the statistics mean, Mplus applications, and an interpretation of results. Examples from a variety of disciplines demonstrate the use of the models. The book datasets are available on the web. Ideal for advanced students or researchers, an understanding of structural equation modeling is assumed.
