Statistical Horizons will host a 2-day course called “Multilevel and Mixed Models.” The course will be taught by Stephen Vaisey on October 12 at 9AM (EST) in Philadelphia.
This two-day seminar provides an intensive introduction to multilevel models. After a brief conceptual introduction (including a discussion of the difference between random and fixed effects), we will begin with simple variance components models. We will then move on to mixed models (random effects models with fixed covariates). Next, we will investigate how using random coefficients and cross-level interactions can help us understand how individual-level processes work differently in different contexts. At the conclusion of the course, students will: Know the technical and substantive difference between fixed and random effects; Understand what random intercept models, random coefficient models, and crossed random effects models are and when to use each one; and Know how to estimate and interpret these models in Stata.
The seminar will focus on hands-on understanding and draw from examples across the social and behavioral sciences. At the conclusion of the course, students will:
- Know the technical and substantive difference between fixed and random effects
- Understand random intercepts, random coefficients, and crossed random effects models and know when to use each one
The course costs $995 which includes all of the seminars materials. There is a early registration fee until September 12. To Register CLICK HERE.
