BBH 597-006 Introduction to Time-Varying Effect Modeling
Schedule Number: 029029
Instructor: Sara Vasilenko, PhD, Research Associate, The Methodology Center
Time and Location: March 26, April 2, 9, 16, 23, 2018; 6:00-9:00
Enrollment limited to 15 students
Course Description: The goal of this short course is to help you gain the background and skills to be able to identify and address new research questions using time-varying effect modeling (TVEM), a novel method for examining associations across time. Course topics will include discussion of the types of questions that can be addressed using TVEM, models for continuous and binary outcomes, moderation and weighted analyses. Examples will focus primarily on age-varying effects to study epidemiological and developmental questions in cross-sectional and longitudinal panel data, but will also include applications to intensive longitudinal data.
Prerequisites: Prerequisites are three semesters of graduate-level statistics for the social and behavioral sciences. Basic familiarity with SAS is also helpful.
