This chapter describes how to conceptualize, postulate, fit, and interpret a latent growth model. Section 8.1 begins by reviewing the general covariance structure model. Section 8.2 maps the multilevel model for change onto the general covariance structure model. Section 8.3 illustrates an invaluable extension of this approach that allows you to investigate whether change in one construct is related to change in another. Section 8.4 concludes by listing additional extensions of the basic approach briefly.

Keywords: covariance structure model; latent growth model; domain analysis; latent growth modeling
