Workshops will enable participants to put the learned methods into practice and will use the Stata (80%) and Mlwin (20%) packages.
Participants on this course must have prior statistical knowledge covering inference and linear regression modelling (up to the level of the CASS course on ‘Introduction to Linear Regression Modelling' for example).
