In this seminar, you will learn how to do regression analysis of panel data—the most common type of longitudinal data. Panel data contain measurements of predictor and response variables at two or more points in time for many individuals. Although panel data have many attractions, the downside is that repeated measurements typically violate assumptions of independence. This seminar covers four methods for solving the problem of dependent observations: robust standard errors, generalized estimating equations, random effects (mixed) models and fixed effects models. You’ll learn how to use these methods for quantitative outcomes, categorical outcomes, and count data outcomes.
This seminar will use Stata for the many empirical examples and exercises. However, no previous experience with Stata is assumed. Lecture notes and exercises using SAS are also available on request. Seminar participants who are not yet ready to purchase Stata could take advantage of StataCorp’s free 30-day evaluation offer or their 30-day software return policy.
This new seminar from statistical horizons with professor Paul Allison on Longitudinal Data Analysis using Stata will be hosted on June 15 at 9 a.m. EST.
