This course is designed to give participants an introduction to the theory and application of multilevel regression models for clustered or hierarchical data using the MLwiN statistical software package. We focus on two-level linear and logistic regression models for cross-sectional (individuals nested within groups) and longitudinal (repeated measures nested within individuals) data. The course consists of a 2:1 mix of lectures and “hands on” practical sessions using MLwiN. Each new modelling development is illustrated with real applications to social, behavioural and medical science data sets.
An appreciation of the implications of ignoring clustered cross-sectional and longitudinal data structures in statistical modelling
An understanding of a range of multilevel regression models for analysing clustered and longitudinal data
Practice at estimating two-level linear and logistic regression models in MLwiN, and at interpreting and plotting the results
Overview of multilevel modelling
?Within - and between - cluster effects of the covariates
Random slope models
Growth-curve models for repeated measures longitudinal data
Multilevel logistic regression for binary response data
Resources continuing your multilevel modelling learning after the course
Applied quantitative researchers with an interest in the analysis of clustered cross-sectional and longitudinal data.
The course will not assume a high level of statistical knowledge, but participants will be expected to have a good understanding and experience of applying and interpreting conventional linear and logistic regression models. A set of on-line training materials to enable participants to refresh their knowledge of these topics are available from the Centre for Multilevel Modelling (CMM) website in Bristol (http://www.cmm.bristol.ac.uk/learning-training/course.shtml).
Delegates will need to download the latest version of MLwiN onto their laptop and bring this to the course, as this will be used during the workshop: http://www.bristol.ac.uk/cmm/software/mlwin/download/
“The course was organised and the topics were well-structured.”
“Good balance of practical & theory, knowledgeable & helpful speakers."
“Excellent course. Very challenging but pushed me to understand what I needed – I had a breakthrough. Thank you!”
