Subject   st: COURSE in London: Multilevel and Longitudinal Modelling (lower fee)
Date   Tue, 18 May 2010 18:34:34 -0700

Sophia Rabe-Hesketh and Anders Skrondal will teach
a one-day course on "Multilevel and Longitudinal Modelling"
in central London on 10 June, followed by an optional extra day,
on 11 June, in a computer lab on "Multilevel and Longitudinal
Modelling using Stata."

Inquiries to:

Course 1: Multilevel and Longitudinal Modelling
10 June 2010, 10am-17:30pm
Institute of Education (near the British Museum)
20 Bedford Way (Main Building), WLE Center, Level 4

The course introduces models for clustered data, such as students
nested in schools, or repeated measures/panel waves nested in
subjects. We start with linear random-intercept models for
continuous responses before introducing random coefficients and
higher levels of nesting. Logistic random effects models for
dichotomous responses will be considered next. We will also briefly
discuss alternative approaches such as fixed-effects models and
generalized estimating equations. Examples will come from a variety
of disciplines including social science and medicine. This course
emphasizes understanding of multilevel and related models and
interpretation of parameter estimates, but does not teach any
particular software. Course participants should be familiar with
linear and logistic regression.

The course is based on the book "Multilevel and Longitudinal
Modeling Using Stata" (
but Stata syntax will not be discussed.

Course 2: Multilevel and Longitudinal Modelling using Stata
11 June 2010, 10am-16:00pm
Institute of Education (near the British Museum)
20 Bedford Way (Main Building), Computer Room in library

In this hands-on course in a computer lab, we show how to use Stata
to estimate the models discussed in the course on "Multilevel and
Longitudinal Modelling" (course 1). After we have introduced the
commands for a given model type, participants will do exercises with
different datasets, followed by a discussion of the solutions. The
estimation commands covered include xtreg, xtmixed, xtlogit, xtgee
and some gllamm. Some useful tools for data preparation,
post-estimation and graphics will also be discussed. The
prerequisite for this course is a basic knowledge of Stata and
having attended course 1.

The courses are organised by the ADMIN node (Institute of Education)
of the ESRC National Centre for Research Methods.

Course fees (per course), including lunch and coffee/tea:
£30 - For UK registered Students
£60 - For Staff from UK academic institutions, ESRC funded researchers
      and registered charity organisations
£220 - For all other participants

How to get there

Sophia Rabe-Hesketh (University of California at Berkeley
and Institute of Education, University of London)
and Anders Skrondal (Norwegian Institute of Public Health
and University of Oslo) have written many books,
papers and chapters on these topics.
They have taught successful courses on multilevel
and longitudinal modeling at the University of California at
Berkeley and the London School of Economics and many
short-courses worldwide.
