This one-day course begins with a description of some examples where multilevel models are useful in statistical analysis and some examples of multilevel populations. We then cover the basic theory of multilevel models including random intercept and random slope specifications, the use of contextual variables in multilevel analysis and modelling repeated measures. This course is suitable for social scientists who want to learn about a quantitative technique that allows both individual and group level variations to be simultaneously taken into account when modelling social phenomena.
Introduce the general idea of multilevel modelling
Consider some issues of multilevel modelling from a substantive and theoretical perspective.
Show how multilevel modelling can applied to social data using specialist software MLwiN
No prior knowledge of multilevel modelling is assumed. You will need to have some familiarity with regression models.
