On Friday, February 15, Kenneth Bollen, PhD, will present An Overview of Autoregressive, Latent Growth Curve, and ALT Models for Longitudinal Data: CPC Research Methods Seminar as part of the Carolina Population Center 2018-2019 Interdisciplinary Research Seminar Series.

Professor Bollen is the Henry Rudolph Immerwahr Distinguished Professor, Psychology & Neuroscience and Department of Sociology at UNC-Chapel Hill. His research focuses on developing statistical methodology with applications across a range of population and health areas. His expertise on latent variable structural equation models provides a means to control for measurement error when testing hypotheses. As a statistical consultant for CPC, Bollen provides statistical advice for many CPC Fellows and students.

Friday, Feb 15
Carolina Square Room 2002

A wide variety of models are applied to analyze longitudinal data.  This seminar provides an overview of three popular ones: the latent growth curve (LGC), the autoregressive (AR), and the autoregressive latent trajectory (ALT) longitudinal models.  The seminar presents each model and discusses their parameters and interpretation.  I use an empirical example to illustrate each model and how to program them using structural equation modeling software.

  • Instructors: To arrange for class attendance, contact CPC at cpc@unc.edu by the Monday before the seminar
  • Streaming may be available and must be arranged at least one week in advance.

This seminar is part of the Carolina Population Center's Interdisciplinary Research Seminar Series.
