Description

Latent variable models relate a set of observed (or manifest) variables to a set of latent (or unmeasured) variables. In practice, this entails the use of models to summarise the relationship between a series of highly associated variables. It will be demonstrated that these models are specific examples of a wider family of measurement models.

This one-day course will showcase latent variable models through the application of these models to social science data. Particular emphasis will be given to estimation and interpretation of latent class models in Stata.

It is most suited to empirical social science researchers with knowledge of statistical data analysis methods.

Course will be delivered on-line.

Course timings are 10:00 - 16:00
