    This book summarizes a range of new analytic tools for multitrait-multimethod (MTMM) data. Providing an expository yet accessible approach to cutting-edge developments for MTMM analysis, a selection of quantitative researchers reveal their recent contributions to the field including non-technical summaries and empirical examples.

    The contributions inform quantitative social scientists of some of the most cutting-edge developments for MTMM analysis. A range of developments have emerged over the past decade for MTMM analyses, and this book presents these novel additions to the quantitative community as a cohesive narrative. This book makes these recent MTMM contributions accessible to applied researchers (most MTMM innovations are presented in less approachable journals for applied researchers) by providing non-technical summaries and empirical examples.

    This book will serve as a stepping stone for applied researchers seeking to adopt MTMM analysis into their program of research, and will be relevant to researchers, both within a professional and academic context, across the social and behavioral sciences.
