Latent Class/Cluster Analysis and Mixture Modeling

This five-day workshop focuses on the application and interpretation of statistical techniques, namely cluster analysis, latent class analysis and mixture models, designed to identify subgroups within a heterogeneous population.

June 10-14, 2019
Instructors: Dan Bauer and Patrick Curran

Multilevel Modeling

This five-day workshop focuses on the application and interpretation of multilevel models, also known as hierarchical linear models and mixed models, for the analysis of nested data structures such as individuals clustered within groups (e.g., students within schools) or repeated measures over time (e.g., longitudinal observations within persons).

June 23-28, 2019
Instructors: Dan Bauer and Patrick Curran

Bayesian Statistical Modeling: A First Course

This three-day course is intended as both a theoretical and practical introduction, discussing models up through multiple regression, covering aspects of modeling including model construction, graphical representations of models, practical aspects of Markov chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) estimation, evaluating hypotheses and model-data fit, model comparisons, and modeling in the presence of missing data. For more information or to register visit the workshop's website.

June 10-12
Location: University of Maryland, College Park, Maryland, and online
Instructor: Roy Levy

Bayesian Statistical Modeling: A Second Course

This two-day course assumes experience with introductory level Bayesian statistical modeling, such as that provided in our first course (or analogous coursework), and covers Bayesian approaches to factor analysis, structural equation modeling, multilevel modeling, item response theory, latent class analysis, and Bayesian networks. For more information or to register visit the workshop's website.
