A structural equation modelling approach for estimating a linear growth curve model is presented. This method can be used for a wide variety of models based on the General Linear Mixed Model. This model is a simple example of a multilevel or random coefficients model. The logic of the method is described, and then a LISREL implementation is presented. As an example of the individual linear growth curve model, growth data presented by Pothoff and Roy (1964) is analysed.
