Course Content
Real data are often clustered such as repeated measurements on the same subject or measurements in grouped subjects (e.g. school studies). Failure to allow for clustering results in too small standard errors and subsequently produces false-positive findings. The aim of the course is to provide participants with an understanding of the basic concepts and general techniques in the analysis of clustered data. Valid analysis methods appropriate for clustered data will be introduced.
Learning objectives, training objectives
By the end of the course participants will be able to define the appropriate analysis method for a clustered data set. Participants will be able to perform and evaluate own analyses of clustered data.
Target Audience
clinicians, researchers, public health specialists and other health care professionals who want to perform analyses of data with clustered structures. This is an advanced statistical course.
