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 and resources you need to be a knowledgeable user of quantitative methods, including tutorials on commonly used techniques, software demonstrations, discussion of common data analytic concerns, and updates on ongoing developments.

How do you choose the best longitudinal data analytic method for testing your research questions?

April 2, 2019
We have worked with statistical models for longitudinal data for more than two decades and this remains a vexing question to us both. There are so many modeling options from which to choose that it is often overwhelming to know which statistical method to use when. This is further complicated by the ongoing refinement of existing models and the development of wholly new models as each year passes. To help orient researchers to these many options, we recently presented a professional development workshop at the 2019 meeting of the Society for Research on Child Development titled Longitudinal Data Analysis: Knowing What to Do and Learning How to Do It and are pleased to make the materials for this workshop publicly available. We hope these materials help researchers identify which longitudinal data analysis techniques are best suited to test various kinds of hypotheses, and to decide among the many different training opportunities that exist for learning how to use these techniques with greater confidence.
