For structured change over time, we will use an example data set constructed by Patrick Curran. This data set, hereafter called the Curran data, was compiled from a large longitudinal data set. Supporting documentation and the original data files are available on the Internet (Curran, 1997); the following descrip­tion is summarized from Curran (1997). The Curran data are a sample of 405 children who were within the first 2 years of entry to elementary school. The data consist of four repeated measures of both the child’s antisocial behavior and the child’s reading recognition skills. In addition, at the first measurement occasion, measures were collected of emotional support and cognitive stimulation provided by the mother. These data are a subsample from the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth (NLSY), based on three key criteria. First, children must have been between the ages of 6 and 8 years at the first wave of measurement. Second, children must have complete data on all measures used at the first measurement occasion. Third, only one child was considered from each mother. All N = 405 children and mothers were interviewed at measurement occasion one; on the three following occasions the sample sizes were 374, 297, and 294. Only 221 cases were interviewed at all four occasions.
