Abstract:

The objective of this research report is to provide a state-of-the art review of the issues and methods relating to the modeling of change over time. The focus is on the quantitative assessment of the concept of change of time, which includes issues of conceptualization, measurement, data analysis, and interpretation. The rationale and motivation for this research originated from the authors observations specifically in the past decade in the capacities of journal editor, reviewer, symposium discussant, and workshop leader on the need for a comprehensive and relatively non-technical reference on and integration of various issues in the modeling of change over time that will facilitate researchers studying substantive change phenomena who may not be methodological experts on analysis of longitudinal data.
