Description

Features contemporary tendencies and advances within the concept and methods used to effectively degree and version growth

Growth Curve Modeling: conception and functions positive factors an available creation to development curve modeling and addresses the way to visual display unit the switch in variables through the years for the reason that there isn't any “one dimension suits all” method of development dimension. A evaluation of the needful arithmetic for development modeling and the statistical concepts wanted for estimating development types are supplied, and an outline of renowned progress curves, equivalent to linear, logarithmic, reciprocal, logistic, Gompertz, Weibull, unfavorable exponential, and log-logistic, between others, is included.

In addition, the booklet discusses key program parts together with fiscal, plant, inhabitants, woodland, and enterprise progress and is acceptable as a source for assessing fresh development modeling developments within the clinical box. SAS is applied all through to research and version development curves, helping readers in estimating really good development charges and curves. together with derivations of almost all the significant development curves and versions, progress Curve Modeling: concept and functions additionally features:

• Statistical distribution research because it relates to progress modeling

• development estimations

• Dynamic web site equations bought from progress models

• Nonlinear regression

• Yield-density curves

• Nonlinear combined results versions for repeated measurements data

Growth Curve Modeling: conception and functions is a superb source for statisticians, public future health analysts, biologists, botanists, economists, and demographers who require a contemporary overview of statistical tools for modeling progress curves and interpreting longitudinal facts. The publication can be invaluable for upper-undergraduate and graduate classes on development modeling.
