Description:

Longitudinal Data Analysis is a very popular statistical method in a range of fields including medicine, natural resource management, business and economics. As well as allowing a researcher to elicit the changes in a subject (person, business, etc) over time, longitudinal data is also exceedingly powerful as it allows the within-subject and between-subject variance to be estimated independently (generally allowing the parameters in the statistical model to be estimated with a much tighter accuracy than traditional models).

This course provides an overview of Longitudinal Data Analysis. As well as the statistical theory, an overview of the many applications and capabilities of LDA is given. The course is not particularly mathematical, but instead places emphasis on the fundamental concepts of LDA and how it is used by applied researchers.

Start: Monday, 24 June 2024 @ 09:00

End: Friday, 28 June 2024 @ 16:00

Duration: 5 days

Timezone: Melbourne

Venue: online

 Country: Australia

Prerequisites:

It would be beneficial if students have had some previous exposure to regression, though the topic of regression will be taught at the start of the workshop, assuming that students are seeing regression for the first time.

Participants do not need to be familiar with Stata. The workshop presenter will demonstrate how to use Stata for the first exercise in each session, prior to workshop participants individually working though the exercises for that session.

Learning Objectives:

General aims of the course are for students to develop a readiness for using LDA software and to develop the requisite knowledge for applying LDA methods and models in an intelligent way. Note that participants may be invited to briefly present their own research on the last day of class. This exercise, along with the formal lecture material, might help participants to chart a direction forward in their study and application of LDA.

Eligibility:
  • Open to all

Target audience:
  • researchers
  • PhD students
  • HDR students

Capacity: 12

Event type:
  • Workshop
Tech Requirements:

As part of this course you will be using data from the Australian Data Archive (ADA). These datasets are restricted, so you will need to apply to the ADA for access as a prerequisite for the course. In the weeks leading up to the course, ACSPRI will contact you with detailed instructions on how to do this.

You will need to pre-install Stata on your computer. If you don't have a copy of Stata, please let us know in advance and we will organise a (full) trial version for you.

While this workshop is primarily designed for participants using Stata, an alternative set of exercises can be provided for participants who would like to use R instead.

Training in this course will be over the Zoom Platform.

This course will use the Windows version of NVivo.

NVivo for Macs will not be supported.

Cost Basis: Cost incurred by all
