    Identified opportunities to make statistical analysis more closely approximate the conceptual issues that are apparent in current research in pediatric psychology. The paper proceeds by explicating the logic of multivariate analysis and its application to causal modeling. Causal modeling techniques are discussed and the ease of employing these techniques is evaluated. Several articles from earlier issues of this journal are reviewed in terms of the application of causal analysis.
