This chapter discusses yet another set of methods aimed at discerning structural dynamics and causal mechanisms of ontogenetic changes: the multivariate analysis of longitudinal changes by means of latent growth models (LGM) and multilevel models (MLM). Similar to other methods, LGM and MLM have specific strengths, limitations, and problems. The chapter highlights central characteristics, using recent examples from research conducted for illustration.

Keywords:   structural dynamics, causal mechanisms, cognitive aging, latent growth models, multilevel models
