Description


Multilevel models are extensions of regression for data that have a hierarchical (or nested) structure.  This two half-day workshop provides an intensive introduction to multilevel models. The workshop will focus on hands-on understanding and draw from examples across the social and health sciences. Previous experience with R and linear regression with any software will be assumed.

Learning Objectives

After completing the course, students will: 

  • Understand the concept of multilevel model: varying regression coefficients between groups; 
  • Know the technical and substantive difference between fixed and random effects; 
  • Understand random intercepts, random coefficients, and crossed random effects models and know when to use each one; and
  • Know how to estimate these models with R and interpret the result.
