Hierarchical Linear Models II: Special Topics


This is a second course in hierarchical linear models. Individuals who enroll should have taken the ICPSR course Hierarchical Linear Models I: Introduction or its equivalent, and have experience using HLM research techniques. This course will consider causal inference for multilevel and longitudinal analysis, estimating HLM from incomplete data, models for spatially dependent neighborhood effects, generalized hierarchical linear models, including nonlinear models for binary, count, ordinal, and multinomial outcomes; embedding measurement models in HLM; multivariate models for growth; and models for dyads, with consideration of cross-sectional models for matched pairs and longitudinal models for dyads changing over time. 2014
