This course provides an introduction to the theory and application of multilevel models for analysing continuous response variables. The course will be based around multilevel modelling concept sessions followed by “hands on” practical sessions using the Stata software package. Example datasets will come from the Belfast Youth Development Study, a longitudinal study of adolescent substance use. (Please note that there will not be enough time to analyse participants’ own data during the course.)
Day 1 morning: Multilevel data structures and variance components models
Day 1 afternoon: Random intercept models and random slope models
Day 2 morning: Contextual effects and cross-level interactions
Day 2 afternoon: Growth curve models for longitudinal data
Quantitative social science researchers with an interest in the multilevel analysis of hierarchically structured data. It will be assumed that participants are familiar with standard multiple regression models for continuous response variables (to the level implied by Module 3 of the LEMMA online multilevel modelling course.
£60 for UK registered postgraduate students; £120 for staff at UK academic institutions, ESRC funded researchers and registered charity organisations; £440 for all other participants.
