Principal Investigator: Professor Brian Francis
Lancaster-Warwick-Stirling node (Developing statistical modelling in the social sciences) aimed to develop and extend statistical methodology and models related to correlated and longitudinal data with substantive applications in criminology, psychology, sociology and education. They also ran a programme of training and capacity building to support researchers in this area.
Researchers at the Lancaster-Warwick-Stirling node
- Developed and extended statistical models for correlated and structured longitudinal data, and associated computational methodologies, building upon existing expertise and experience;
- Used such models to investigate relevant and topical social science problems in criminology, psychology, sociology and education and sought cross-fertilisation in these areas and into other disciplines;
- Developed software and training materials to allow such models to be disseminated to other users;
- Provided a programme of short courses and workshops in the broad area of statistical modelling and advanced courses related to node activity.
The Lancaster-Warwick-Stirling node was based at the Lancaster University, the University of Warwick and the University of Stirling.
