Next course

RSS 2014 pre-conference short courses, Monday 1 September 2014, Sheffield

Introduction to multivariate meta-analysis

Statistical principles for the design of experiments

Sensitivity analysis for computer models

Multivariate data analysis

Visualising Geographic Data with Open Source Tools

Analysing sectional and national survey data using latent variable and structural equation models

Latent variable models are a broad family of models that can be used to capture abstract concepts by means of multiple (continuous and/or categorical) indicators. They are often best known in the form of factor analysis and structural equation models. Day 1 of the course introduces participants to latent trait models (continuous latent variables) and latent class models (discrete latent variables) and Day 2 to multiple group latent trait and latent class analyses. The course provides training in the use of Mplus to carry out the analyses.
