The AMIB Data

A Multiple Time-scale Experience Sampling Study

The AMIB Data, collected as part of a multiple time-scale study, are useful for illustrating a variety of methods for modeling of intensive longitudinal data. The data include person-level dispositionsdaily diary assessments, and ecological momentary assessments that were obtained after everyday social interactions (event-contingent sampling).

The data are shared with intent to facilitate learning about analysis of intensive longitudinal data (from experience sampling, daily diary, or EMA designs). The data are posted only for teaching purposes and should not be used for research.
