Dyadic Data Analysis

The study of dyads has proliferated in recent years, as such analyses allow researchers to examine meaningful groups (romantic couples, families, workplace relationships). Within dyadic designs, the implementation of Actor Partner Interdependence Modelling (APIM) in particular allows researchers to examine the mutual influence of two members of a dyad on themselves and their partner. This workshop will provide:


  • An introduction to the basics behind dyadic analyses and APIM in particular.
  • Syntax, results, and a graphing example for a cross-sectional APIM in SAS, SPSS, and Mplus.
  • Syntax, results, and a graphing example for a longitudinal APIM in SAS, SPSS, and Mplus.
  • Resources available online that can help with further applications of APIM models.
