This talk will provide a conceptual introduction to multilevel/longitudinal modeling from a frequentist perspective followed by an introduction to the concepts and jargon of Bayesian statistics. We will then combine these two ideas and demonstrate how to fit Bayesian multilevel and longitudinal models using Stata's -bayesmh- command. This will be a relatively non-technical talk which will focus on the concepts, Stata syntax, and interpretation of the results.
Space is limited. RSVP required.
