The growing number of sophisticated longitudinal data sets make such analyses—impossible until recently because of data limitations—increasingly feasible (Maddox & Campbell, 1985). Trajectories of Variability and Levels of Analysis Before leaving the general problems of conceptualizing differential aging and differential trajectories of variability, a final issue is raised by the possibilities of deriving different outcomes from the same data, depending on the level of analysis.
