In this paper we consider an extended growth curve model with two hierarchical within-individuals design matrices, which is useful in analyzing mean profiles of several groups with parallel polynomial growth curves. The covariance structure based on a random e¤ects model is assumed. The maximum likelihood estimators (MLE’s) are obtained under the random e¤ects covariance structure. The efficiency of the MLE is discussed. A numerical example is also given.
