Forthcoming events

Analysis of cross-national survey data: state of the art and recent developments

 Monday 15 December 2014
Conference venue: "THE BOX", Tower 3, LSE campus

This one-day workshop, organised by Dr Jouni Kuha|, takes place at LSE on Monday 15 December 2014. Further details will be published soon. In the meantime, please address any expressions of interest to Ian Marshall|, research administrator.

Methods for longitudinal data analysis in the social sciences

Monday 8 September 2014, 10:00 – 18:00 (followed by drinks reception and buffet dinner)

Conference venue: New Theatre, East Building, Houghton Street, LSE campus

These are unprecedented times for the social sciences in terms of the availability of high-quality longitudinal data. The richness of these data are enabling researchers to broaden their horizons and contemplate addressing research questions of increasing complexity, and develop models of increasing sophistication to answer these questions.  In this event, we bring together researchers from social statistics, biostatistics and economics to talk about some of the latest developments in this area.  The speakers will talk on a range of subjects, from innovative ways of collecting longitudinal data to dealing with its most difficult problems, from modelling growth and over-dispersion to estimating causal effects.

This event is sponsored by the LEMMA node of the ESRC National Centre of Research Methods|, and is organised by Fiona Steele| (LSE) and Paul Clarke| (University of Essex).
