Statistics Seminar Objectives

The 2.5-day training institute on Longitudinal SEM will enable participants to:

  • Understand the strengths and weaknesses of the different models that can be applied to longitudinal data.
  • Develop a clear understanding of how the models can be specified and adapted to address the specific needs and questions of the investigator.
  • Gain knowledge of the ways in which one should formulate models test alternative models, and evaluate models with regard to statistical and practical significance.
  • Become proficient in the use of the program(s) LISREL 8.8x and or Mplus 5.x for analysis of structural models as they apply to longitudinal data (R and SAS® assistance available).

Statistical Methods Seminar Description

Overview: This Euro Camp institute, sponsored by IMMAP, is an advanced intensive short course in the analysis of longitudinal data using SEM. The course will be a series of lectures and computer workshops to provide participants with advanced training in the use of SEM for the analysis of longitudinal data.

Topics include:

• Design and measurement issues in longitudinal research
• Traditional panel designs
• Latent growth curve analysis
• Growth mixture modeling
• Multi-level SEM with longitudinal data
• Dynamic intra-individual modeling

Instructor: Todd D. Little

Seminar Audience

If you already have a strong background in the application of SEM to analyze the covariance structure of multivariate data and you need to learn how to apply more advanced models to longitudinal data, this course is for you. We strongly recommend that you attend our five-day intensive summer institute on the foundations of SEM as a pre-requisite to taking this five-day advanced course. If you have not taken the foundations seminar, you should have extensive experience or have taken a graduate-level course on SEM before enrolling.

Participants from a variety of fields, including sociology, psychology, education, human development, marketing, business, biology, medicine, political science, and communication, will benefit from the course.

The course will support LISREL, Mplus or Laavan. Some assistance will be available for questions related to other structural modeling packages. Previous knowledge of LISREL, Mplus or Laavan is preferred but not required.
