Description

This book provides developmental researchers with the basic tools for understanding how to utilize categorical variables in their data analysis. Covering the measurement of individual differences in growth rates, the measurement of stage transitions, latent class and log-linear models, chi-square, and more, the book provides a means for developmental researchers to make use of categorical data.

Key Features

  • Catastrophe theory
  • Latent class and log-linear models
  • Applications

Readership

Research scientists, academics, and graduate students in developmental psychology, gerontology, and statistics.
