Description

Many quantitative researchers in the social and health sciences will be required to analyse data with a hierarchical or multilevel structure, or with missing or mis-measured values, at some point in their careers. Bayesian methods offer a natural approach to handling these types of problems, through their ability to specify distributions both for model parameters and for missing or imprecisely measured data. This two-day course provides researchers who already have some basic understanding of Bayesian methods with a more in-depth treatment of applied Bayesian methods for modelling data with complex structure.

This course will run:

Day one - 10am-5:15pm

Day two - 9:30am-4:30pm

 

Level

Intermediate (some prior knowledge)
