2017 Workshop: Longitudinal Data Analysis
- In even-numbered years we offer a three day workshop covering measurement models including item response theory. See a description of the topics covered here (next offered Summer 2018)
- In odd-numbered years (next offered in 2017) we offer a three day workshop on longitudinal data analysis including latent growth curve models, random effect models, latent difference score models, and survival analysis. See a description of the topics covered here.
Both workshops are targeted at novice to beginning users and include introductory material on latent variable modeling and the basics of using Mplus software, or the lavaan
package in R
. We cover how to use Mplus software interactively, as well as using Mplus via Stata and R. The workshop involves lecture and lab sessions where attendees practice running models on their own computers. Practice data and example problems (capable of being estimated with the Mplus demo version) are provided.
The workshop fee
is $230 per day and is refundable. There is an early bird discount, and a discount
for Brown faculty and staff.
