The most common type of longitudinal data is panel data or repeated measures data, consisting of measurements of predictor and response variables at two or more points in time for many individuals (or other units). Panel data enable two major advances over cross-sectional data:

    1. the ability to model the evolution of outcomes over time; and
    2. the ability to “control” for unobserved unit-specific heterogeneity, enabling better causal inferences.

Different data structures allow researchers to use panel data in different ways. In this course, we will focus on the following approaches:

    1. Mixed models (including latent growth curves)
    2. Two period difference-in-differences
    3. Fixed-effects models (one-way and two-way)
    4. Between-within models
    5. Dynamic panel models

In addition to considering these approaches and their implementation in Stata, we will discuss when each is (not) suitable given data constraints. We will also consider how to adapt these approaches to deal with limited dependent variables (especially binary outcomes).

Starting August 2, we are offering this seminar as a 4-day synchronous*, livestream workshop held via the free video-conferencing software Zoom. Each day will consist of two lecture sessions which include hands-on exercises, separated by a 1-hour break. You are encouraged to join the lecture live, but will have the opportunity to view the recorded session later in the day if you are unable to attend at the scheduled time.

*We understand that finding time to participate in livestream courses can be difficult. If you prefer, you may take all or part of the course asynchronously. The video recordings will be made available within 24 hours of each session and will be accessible for four weeks after the seminar, meaning that you will get all of the class content and discussions even if you cannot participate synchronously.

Closed captioning is available for all live and recorded sessions.

"Stephen effortlessly and effectively teaches longitudinal data analysis, from basic descriptive statistics to highly complex topics."

“Stephen Vaisey fits perfectly into the ethos of Statistical/code Horizons– high-level statistics taught in a practical, accessible way.

Stephen is the epitome of this ethos. He effortlessly and effectively teaches longitudinal data analysis, from basic descriptive statistics to highly complex topics. This course is for everyone; great for beginners and advanced folks.

This is my second course with Stephen and my 10th in statistical horizons. Could not recommend this and Statistical/Code Horizons enough.”

“I appreciated that the slides and examples were estimated live during the session."

“I appreciated that the slides and examples were estimated live during the session. Also, that comments and interpretations were provided and that live commands in Stata were stored every day. The chat and Slack were useful for contact with the instructor, who was experienced and professional. He provided great advice for further reading. Finally, the fact that all sessions are recorded and available for 30 days after the course is very helpful.”
