Multivariate and Multilevel Longitudinal Analysis

This chapter presents a review of perspectives and methods for analysis of longitudinal data on several related variables. A connection is made with multilevel analysis in which the longitudinal and multivariate dimensions of the data can naturally be subsumed. With the focus on large-scale longitudinal studies of human subjects who are in general disinterested in and not highly motivated by the agenda of the study, methods for dealing with nonresponse are an essential addendum to the analytical equipment.
