Abstract

In this paper we present a class of structural equation models in which the true intraindividual change scores between two or more occasions of measurement are the values of the endogenous latent variables. This specification allows to examine the predictors of interindividual differences in true intraindividual change between time points. The models presented include mean structures and different factor loadings for each observed variable. An application involving children’s psychosocial adjustment and poverty illustrates this finely grained approach to modeling change in a structural equation framework.
