ICPSR — Bayesian Multi-Level Modeling (VIRTUAL)
June 18, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
This workshop introduces the Bayesian multilevel model framework. Bayesian methods allow for an extremely flexible approach for estimating hierarchical models with a variety different types of dependent variables. The Bayesian approach simplifies several of the assumptions of the classical techniques for MLMS and directly estimates a variety of quantities of interest that require post-estimation methods in the non-Bayesian framework. Topics covered will be the hierarchical linear model, as well as a models with limited dependent variables, summarizing results, in and out of sample predictions, and measures of model fit. No prior knowledge of Bayesian modeling is required, but will be beneficial.
