Growth curve analysis, Advanced Statistics

Growth curve analysis is the general term for methods dealing with development of the individuals over time. A classic instance includes recordings made on a group of children, say, of height or weight at the specific ages. The plot of the former against the latter for each child provides the individual's growth curve. Conventionally low-degree polynomials are ?tted to such type of curves, and the resulting parameter estimates used for the inferences such as comparisons between boy and girls.
