Event description

Description

The third in our series of Q-Step Masterclasses (workshop-style sessions focusing on quantitative/methods skills/learning in topical and relevant subject areas), the Warwick Q-Step Centre is delighted to host this 2 DAY Masterclass on Introduction to Longitudinal Analysis, delivered by Prof Vernon Gayle - Professor of Sociology and Social Statistics at the University of Edinburgh.

This 2 DAY Masterclass is aimed primarily at postgraduate students on our 3 Quantitative Social Science degrees. Final year Q-Step undergraduate students, interested in learning enhancement opportunities, are also invited to attend. Depending on numbers we may be abel to open the event up to PG students in other relevant subject areas though out the University.

Longitudinal Data Analysis

Most research projects will benefit from the addition of longitudinal data analysis and some research questions can only feasibly be answered using longitudinal data. There is now a wide portfolio of longitudinal data available to social science researchers.

This masterclass will focus on the data that are collected in large-scale social surveys, drawing particularly upon examples from the UK. The overall aim is to provide an introduction and an up-to-date overview of influential approaches to analysing longitudinal data in the social sciences. The practical elements of the course will use Stata software. Having some experience of using Stata for data analysis will be beneficial but is not required.

Listen to Professor Gayle discussing longitudinal research here.

Students will need bring their laptop and download Stata. Please arrive with this software already on your machine.
