This work provides a theoretical and methodological exploration of longitudinal studies on child development. Covering areas from experimental design and data analysis to recent examples of longitudinal research findings, this text is a guide to rethinking issues and strategies for future research. Five sections cover theoretical perspectives, domains of longitudinal research, sources of data, experimental design and data analysis.
