Bridging Advanced Quantitative Methods and Applied Research in the Behavioral, Social and Health Sciences

BRIDGING ADVANCED QUANTITATIVE METHODS WITH APPLIED RESEARCH IN THE BEHAVORIAL, SOCIAL & HEALTH SCIENCES

Training

We currently offer workshops on Multilevel Modeling, Structural Equation Modeling, Structural Equation Models for Longitudinal Data, Mixture Models and Cluster Analysis, and Network Analysis. We also provide individually tailored instruction to groups with specific data analytic needs.

Consulting

We provide consulting services on each phase of the research process, from study design to the application and interpretation of quantitative methods. We offer several modes of consulting to suit a variety of needs.

Informing

We seek to provide you with the information you need to be a knowledgeable user of quantitative methods, including updates on ongoing developments in the field, discussion of common data analytic concerns, and tutorials on commonly used techniques.

CBA Office Hours on Linear Regression

August 3, 2017

It is critical for researchers in the behavioral, health, and social sciences to have a full understanding of the linear regression model. Not only is this model important in its own right, but it serves as the foundation for more advanced statistical models, such as the multilevel model, factor analysis, structural equation modeling, generalized linear models, and many other techniques. For those seeking a first exposure to linear regression or simply looking for a refresher, we’ve launched a new series of CBA Office Hours videos that starts with the basics of the simple one-predictor model and proceeds to more advanced topics. So far, we’ve posted four episodes:

We intend to add more videos as time goes on, focusing on such topics as interpretation in the multiple regression model, the difference between hierarchical versus simultaneous regression, how to incorporate categorical predictors, and how to test, probe, and plot interactions. To view all of the videos in this series in sequence, simply click the embedded video or go to our YouTube playlist on Linear Regression. You can also follow us on social media to be updated as new videos are added on this and other topics.
