Growth curve models - No growth model

Model

One form of the no growth model / no change model looks like,

`y_{it}=L_i+e_{it}, i=1,...,N, t=1,...,T`

`L_i=\beta+v_i`

`e_{it}~N(0,\sigma_e^2)`

`v_i~N(0,\sigma_v^2)`

 Generate codes

To generate codes for this model, first run BAUW and choose the menu "Analyze-Growth curve models - No growth model". In the popup windows, type in "Sample size", "Occasions", "Missing data", then browse the data file to be used. (For this model, no covariate can be used.) Then click OK.

 

After clicking OK, the following codes will be generated. Notice that this is a complete WinBUGS program and can be used in WinBUGS without any modification.

Sometimes, the starting values should be changed to accelerate the convergence.
