Fitting Regression Models to Research Questions for Analyzing Change in Nonexperimental Research.
Gillespie, David F.; Streeter, Calvin L.
Social Work Research, v18 n4 p239-45 Dec 1994
Discusses problems in analyzing change in nonexperimental data. Tests three ordinary least-squares regression models to illustrate similarities/differences. Notes that model based on raw difference change scores applies best to studying change processes; model based on outcome scores applies best to assessing consequences of change; and model based on residualized scores applies best to developing predictive models.
