The course will focus on multilevel modelling for continuous and binary responses (dependent or outcome variables) when the data are clustered or hierarchical. It will consist of a 2:1 mix of lectures and hands-on practical sessions applying the taught methods to real datasets using MLwiN.
1. Overview of multilevel modelling
2. Introduction to MLwiN
3. Variance-components models
4. Random-intercept models with covariates
5. Between- and within-effects of level-1 covariates
6. Random-coefficient models
7. Growth-curve models
8. Three-level models
9. Review of single-level logistic regression
10. Two-level logistic regression
We assume no prior knowledge of multilevel modelling or MLwiN. However, participants should be familiar with estimating and interpreting linear regression models, including the writing and interpretation of model equations, hypothesis testing and model selection, and the use and interpretation of dummy variables and interaction terms. Some participants may wish to refresh themselves of this material by reading module 3 of our LEMMA online course. http://www.bristol.ac.uk/cmm/learning/course-topics.html.
The course starts with registration at 10.45 on Day 1 and finishes at 15:00 on Day 3. Participants are expected to attend the full course.
