Web based: Multilevel/Mixed Models Using Stata

This course is an introduction to using Stata to fit multilevel/mixed models. Mixed models contain both fixed effects analogous to the coefficients in standard regression models and random effects not directly estimated but instead summarized through the unique elements of their variance–covariance matrix. Mixed models may contain multiple levels of nested random effects. These models are also referred to as multilevel or hierarchical models.

The course will be interactive, use real data, and offer ample opportunity for specific research questions and for working exercises to reinforce what is learned.
