Practical Multilevel Modelling
The course focuses on the two-level linear model as a template to illustrate issues of specification, estimation and inference. The main ideas are illustrated through case studies. A typical field of application is education, where students are clustered into schools: one of the case studies aims at assessing the role of student and school factors on student achievement. Another field of application is public health, as illustrated by a case study concerning the relationship between smoking behaviour of pregnant women and birth weight of their newborns
Students, researchers, business professionals who need to develop good quality surveys and/or need to apply appropriate and up-to-date statistical methods. At the conclusion of the Summer School, participants will receive a certificate for each course and with the number of hours attended.
The course introduces the concepts of multilevel analysis, whose main aim is to model the relationships between and within groups. Typical situations include individuals clustered into families, schools, firms, geographical areas.
