Methodological training „Introduction to Multilevel Modelling„
Training will be delivered by dr. José M. Echavarren (Pablo de Olavide University Sevilla, Spain).
This course is an introduction to multilevel modelling techniques. Here we will combine theoretical and practical aspects of one of the most popular techniques for research in Social Science nowadays. Multilevel models are especially useful for cross-national research but are also employed in national databases using two (or three) levels of aggregation (very often used in health or education studies). Course participants will learn how to build linear, ordinal and logistic multilevel models. They will learn how and when to use random intercept or random slope models, two-way or three-way interactions. Usual problems they may encounter in their research using multilevel models will be examined and useful tips provided. SPSS will be the statistical package used for the course. Participants will have the chance to run their own models using their own data in a final practical lesson.
Methodological training will take place at KTU Faculty of Social Sciences, Humanities and Arts, A. Mickevičiaus str. 37, Survey Laboratory (room 210):
