|Multilevel and Mixed Models in Stata — Continuing Education CTW|
|ASA , Stata|
|Instructor(s): Roberto G. Gutierrez, StataCorp LP|
|This workshop covers the use of Stata to fit multilevel (mixed) models, models that contain multiple levels of nested random effects. These effects may take the form of either random intercepts or random coefficients on regressors. After a brief review of the methodology, the course will demonstrate by example the fitting of such models in Stata. The focus will be primarily on linear (Gaussian) models, but binary and count responses will also be considered. In addition to models with nested effects, models with crossed effects will also be discussed. No prior knowledge of Stata is required, but familiararity with the methodology and experience in fitting these models by other means will prove useful.|
