I have a data set that I want to see how class atmosphere influences students' depression.My question is that how do I model this when the cluster covariate also measured at three time points as the individual level outcome variable (depression). Also, I have individual level covariates (e.g., family cohesion). Thank you.
Depression: measured at three time point Class atmosphere: measured at three time point
It sounds like you have a time-varying covariate (class atmosphere) on the between level of the growth model. That can be included in a setup such as UG ex 9.12.

Thank you so much Dr./Prof. B. Muthen. Continue on this issue. I have two further questions (1)In UG ex 9.12, do I specify the third level time-varying variable to influence y1-y4? (2)I am thinking that create a between model growth curve, which influence on the withing model growth curve. In other words, similar to UG ex. 9-12, I replace the effect of w on ib sb by another two growth curve latent variables (say i b). Is it feasible?
