LISA Statistics Short Course: Fixed Effects, Random Effects, and Correlated Data
LISA SHORT COURSES IN STATISTICS
LISA (Virginia Tech's Laboratory for Interdisciplinary Statistical Analysis) is providing a series of evening short courses to help graduate students use statistics in their research. The focus of these two-hour courses is on teaching practical statistical techniques for analyzing or collecting data.

Thursday, July 26;
Instructor: Fixed Effects, Random Effects, and Correlated Data;
Title: Nels Johnson;
The main focus of this course will be on linear mixed models. That is, linear models with fixed effects and random effects. Some topics we will discuss are: When would I want to use a random effect? How does estimation change for random versus fixed effects? How does inference change for random versus fixed effects? How are random effects related to correlated data? Examples in SAS will be provided.
This course will also be taught on July 23rd for those who are unable to attend the July 26th session.
