SHORT ABSTRACT

Longitudinal data on intergroup contact and attitudes are essential to identify potentially causal effects. However, many analytical approaches modelling longitudinal effects (e.g., cross-lagged panel models, latent growth curve models) do not differentiate within-person processes and between-person differences, which might affect the models’ results and interpretation. This presentation gives an empirical example of different modelling approaches and discusses their implications.

A quantitative analysis was made of the news published during the events in three newspapers.
