Abstract [en]

I-States-as-Objects-Analysis (ISOA) is a methodology for studying short-term developmental stability and change in patterns of variable values. The theoretical rationale for this methodology is the person-oriented research paradigm. A key concept is the <i>i-state,</i> defined as a person's pattern of variable values at a specific time point. Hence, if there are k time points, each person is characterized by k i-states. All i-states are first subjected to a classification analysis that results in each person being characterized at each time point by a class membership in the time-invariant classification system. Then, the individuals' sequences of typical i-state belongingness are analyzed with regard to structural and individual stability and change.
