December 2016 Member Webinar: A Gentle Introduction to Generalized Linear Mixed Models – Part 2

by guest

Generalized linear mixed models (GLMMs) are incredibly useful tools for working with complex, multi-layered data. But they can be tough to master.

In this follow-up to October’s webinar (“A Gentle Introduction to Generalized Linear Mixed Models – Part 1”), we’ll cover important topics like:

– Distinction between crossed and nested grouping factors
– Software choices for implementation of GLMMs
– Estimation methods for GLMMs – and the pros and cons of each
– Interpretation pitfalls for GLMMs
– Measures of model fit for GLMMs
– Model diagnostics for GLMMs
– Resources for learning more about GLMMs

With the help of practical examples, you’ll learn the major issues involved in working with GLMMs and how to incorporate these models into your own work.

(Note: You will have access to October’s webinar recording to watch or re-watch it in preparation for this month’s webinar.)


Note: This webinar is an exclusive benefit for members of the Statistically Speaking Membership Program.
