AbstractAutoregressive cross-lagged models and latent growth curve models are frequently applied to longitudinal or panel data. Though often presented as distinct and sometimes competing methods, the Autoregressive Latent Trajectory (ALT) model (Bollen and Curran, 2004) combines the primary features of each into a single model. This chapter: (1) presents the ALT model, (2) describes the situations when this model is appropriate, (3) provides an empirical example of the ALT model, and (4) gives the reader the input and output from an ALT model run on the empirical example. It concludes with a discussion of the limitations and extensions of the ALT model. Our focus is on repeated measures of continuous variables.
