MATH 426 - Applied Longitudinal Analysis
Studies and surveys where data are sampled in clusters or repeatedly sampled from subjects over time (e.g. panel studies) have become popular tools in many fields of research from the biomedical sciences to economics to public policy. The resulting data are typically correlated and potentially time dependent---issues that require a special set of modeling tools. This course covers the modern methods for the analysis of these types of data as well as the unbalanced and incomplete datasets common to such studies. Topics include an introduction to the analysis of correlated data, response profiles, parametric curves, covariance pattern models, random effects, and growth curve models. If time allows, the course will also explore generalized estimating equations (GEEs) and generalized linear mixed effects models (GLMMs). Applications will include real datasets from research in biology, biomedical science, economics, and political science. Analyses will be conducted using the statistical software, R.
