The course covers basic concepts in longitudinal design and analysis.
The morning session focuses on the strengths and methodological difficulties of the longitudinal approach such as defining longitudinal populations and target samples; levels and dimensions of change; age, period and cohort effects. There will be one small group discussion.
After lunch, we start with an overview session on the sources and causes of missing data (attrition, etc), and how to adjust for missingness; this will be followed by another group exercise.
By the end of the course, students should have gained:
an understanding of the different ways of measuring and explaining change using longitudinal data;
an appreciation of the particular problems posed by missing data in longitudinal research;
a basic understanding of ways of adjusting for missing data and
confidence to address questions about longitudinal design and missing data.
