This Statistical Horizons class, Intensive Longitudinal Methods, taught by Niall Bolger and Jean-Philippe Laurenceau, runs from November 11-12 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Intensive longitudinal methods, often called experience sampling, daily diary, or ecological momentary assessment methods, allow researchers to study people’s thoughts, emotions, and behaviors in their natural contexts. Typically, they involve self-reports from individuals, dyads, families or other small groups over the course of hours, days, and weeks. Such data can reveal life as it is actually lived and provide insights that are not possible using conventional experimental or survey research methods. Intensive longitudinal data, however, present data analytic challenges stemming from the multiple levels of analysis and temporal dependencies in the data.

The goal of this workshop is to provide a full-cycle treatment of two fundamental research questions that can be addressed using intensive longitudinal methods: (a) What is the time course of the outcome variable, and (b) what is the within-person causal process that underlies the time course? A full-cycle treatment will take workshop participants through five stages of answering each research question: (1) Design study & collect data, (2) Visualize, (3) Analyze, (4) Write up results, and (5) Power the next study.

Material for this workshop will be drawn from introductory sections of the presenters’ 2013 book,Intensive Longitudinal Methods: An Introduction to Diary and Experience Sampling Research.  

The fee of $995 includes all course materials.
