STAT6108 Analysis of Hierarchical (Multilevel and Longitudinal) Data
The aim of this module is to introduce students to modelling approaches that can handle hierarchical data structures and enable students to apply these methods critically to both multilevel and longitudinal repeated measures data. The unit will present the modelling techniques in an applied way, with theory introduced to ensure understanding. A further aim is to familiarise the participants with the software appropriate for the analysis of hierarchical data. MLwiN will be the main computing tool with some reference to use of R.
