Overview of estimated LCSM parameters

Univariate LCSM

Depending on the specified model, the following parameters can be estimated for univariate LCSMs:

Parameter Description
gamma_lx1 Mean of latent true scores x (Intercept)
sigma2_lx1 Variance of latent true scores x
sigma2_ux Variance of observed scores x
alpha_g2 Mean of change factor (g2)
alpha_g3 Mean of change factor (g3)
sigma2_g2 Variance of change factor (g2)
sigma2_g3 Variance of change factor (g3)
sigma_g2lx1 Covariance of change factor (g2) with the initial true score x
sigma_g3lx1 Covariance of change factor (g3) with the initial true score x
sigma_g2g3 Covariance of change factors within construct x
beta_x Proportional change x
phi_x Autoregression of change scores x
