Abstract : This report describes the growth curve approach to the modeling of longitudinal data from Project Proteus. Desirable properties of the model are presented along with the basic model. Using Project Proteus and data from the Officer Longitudinal Research Data Base (OLRDB), two variables reflecting career intentions and social support were modeled longitudinally. The models were evaluated using chi-square and restricted chi-square tests in LISREL. The results of the exploratory analyses indicate significant effects for cohort and length of time in the Army.... Proteus, Modeling, Longitudinal research, OLRDB, Growth curves, LISREL.
