Event description

Description

MODULE 1: June 11 – June 15
Introduction to Multilevel Modelling (schedule)
Instructors: Ian Dohoo and Henrik Stryhn, CVER, AVC,
University of Prince Edward Island (UPEI)

The 5-day course is designed to provide participants with the knowledge and skills required to successfully fit multilevel models to both continuous data (linear models) Dand discrete data (emphasis on logistic and Poisson models). The presentation of theoretical background material is limited to that which is required for a reasonable understanding of the methods employed. Specific topics covered in the course include: introduction to multilevel/hierarchical data, mixed models for continuous data, mixed models for discrete data, model evaluation (diagnostics), analysis of repeated measures and alternative approaches to dealing with clustered data (including Bayesian methods). The main software used for the instruction is MLwiN, but the code for fitting models in additional software packages (including Stata and R) will also be provided.

MODULE 2: June 18 – June 22

Multivariate Visualization and Analysis (schedule) (The detailed schedules will be posted soon.)
Instructors: Crawford Revie, Gregor McEwan and Henrik Stryhn, CVER, AVC, University of Prince Edward Island (UPEI)

This 5-day course will introduce participants to a range of multivariate techniques that are becoming more commonly used in the analyses on large and increasingly complex observational epidemiological data sets. The techniques covered include: cluster analysis (hierarchical and partitional), multi-dimensional scaling and other network plotting methods, dimension reduction techniques (PCA, common factor analysis, and MCA), as well as a variety of tree-based and other approaches to classification in high-dimensional space. For all of these approaches, a strong emphasis is being put on the use of visualisation both to explore the patterns and associations within the data and also to aid in the interpretation of the modelled outputs. During practicals, participants are given the opportunity to apply these methods to course data sets as well as any own data brought to the course. We will use the Python programming and data analysis platform to introduce and work with the methods, with corresponding R code supplied for the main portions of the course.
