A new class of longitudinal data has emerged with the use of technological devices for scientific data collection. This class of data is called intensive longitudinal data (ILD). This volume features state-of-the-art applied statistical modelling strategies developed by leading statisticians and methodologists working in conjunction with behavioural scientists.
"The topics covered and the multidisciplinary authors make it appealing to a very wide range of researchers in statistics and the social and behavioral sciences."-- Technometrics
"Walls and Schafer have compiled a most interesting and practical volume on methods of analysis of what they call Intensive Longitudinal Data--data from more than just three or four observation waves. This book is interesting because it shows that new and unusual hypotheses can be addressed to complex data, and practical because the methods discussed and proposed are applicable and programs will run on regular PCs. The topics addressed and the multidisciplinary authors make this volume appealing to a very wide readership in biostatistics and the social and behavioral sciences. This is a groundbreaking book for the emerging field of statistical modeling of intensive longitudinal data!"--Alexander von Eye, Professor of Psychology, Michigan State University
