Multilevel and Longitudinal Modelling

21 and 22 June 2012, 10am-1pm
Institute of Education (near the British Museum)
Room G.20, 55-59 Gordon Square, London WC1H 0NU

The course introduces models for clustered data, such as students nested in schools, or repeated measures/panel waves nested in subjects. We start with linear random-intercept models for continuous responses before introducing random coefficients and higher levels of nesting. Logistic random effects models for dichotomous responses will be considered next. We will also briefly discuss alternative approaches such as fixed-effects models and generalized estimating equations. Examples will come from a variety of disciplines including social science and medicine. This course emphasizes understanding of multilevel and related models and interpretation of parameter estimates, but does not teach any particular software. Course participants should be familiar with linear and logistic regression.
