Zhang, Zhiyong; Lai, Keke; Lu, Zhenqiu; Tong, Xin – Structural Equation Modeling: A Multidisciplinary Journal, 2013
Despite the widespread popularity of growth curve analysis, few studies have investigated robust growth curve models. In this article, the "t" distribution is applied to model heavy-tailed data and contaminated normal data with outliers for growth curve analysis. The derived robust growth curve models are estimated through Bayesian…
