Longitudinal Research with Latent Variables by Jacques A. Hagenaars (auth.), Kees van Montfort, Johan H.L.

By Jacques A. Hagenaars (auth.), Kees van Montfort, Johan H.L. Oud, Albert Satorra (eds.)

This publication combines longitudinal learn and latent variable study, i.e. it explains how longitudinal reviews with goals formulated when it comes to latent variables can be performed, with an emphasis on detailing how the equipment are utilized. simply because longitudinal examine with latent variables presently makes use of assorted ways with varied histories, varieties of examine questions, and various machine courses to accomplish the research, the booklet is split into 9 chapters. ranging from (a) a few history information regarding the explicit process (a brief heritage and the most publications), each one bankruptcy then (b) describes the kind of learn questions the technique is ready to solution, (c) presents statistical and mathematical reasons of the versions utilized in the knowledge research, (d) discusses the enter and output of the courses used, and (e) offers a number of examples with commonplace info units, permitting the readers to use the courses themselves.

They tried to correct for the misclassifications, assuming independent misclassifications for the data coming from different interviews and assuming systematic consistency errors for the within interview data. For the purposes here, the example is much more modest in scope: only models for the within reference period will be dealt with, using just one (trichotomous) indicator, just one rotation group and only one reference period. The restriction to this simple situation has the big advantage of focusing on the main issue: how to model systematic patterns of misclassifications by means of SEMs.

The estimated expected frequencies Fˆ for each submodel can be used to test the validity of each submodel by means of the G2 test statistic. The saturated submodels have of course zero degrees of freedom and fit the observed data perfectly. The hypothesis that all restrictions implied by all submodels are true, in other words, that the whole SEM is valid can be obtained by simply summing the G2 statistics (not the PearsonX2 statistics – see Goodman, 1968, 1970), as well as the degrees of freedom of all submodels.
