Description

This course will introduce students to methods used to analyze longitudinal data.  Topics will include multivariate linear regression models for repeated measures, correlation structures for repeated measures, linear and generalized linear mixed models, generalized estimating equations, missing data, and Bayesian methods.  While the course will emphasize application, the theoretical foundations underlying the methods will also be discussed.  Students should be well acquainted with matrix algebra, linear and logistic regression, as well as the fundamentals of statistical inference, including maximum likelihood estimation and large-sample hypothesis testing.
