In the workshop students can get support for their studies in Statistics.

The idea is that students work independently or in groups with the problems that have arisen. The workshop has a teacher and you can ask for the advice from him. However, the idea is that the teacher will not solve the problems for you. The workshop does not provide any compensation of the solved exercises.

Support in using statistical software (e.g. SPSS and R) is also available in workshop.

Period I: especially for students taking MTTTA14 Matrices for Statistics and Computational Methods.

Period II: especially for students taking MTTTA2 Matemaattisen tilastotieteen perusteet.

Period III: especially for students taking MTTTA4 Statistical Inference 1.

This course explores methods for the analysis of longitudinal data and latent variable methods for linear models, generalized linear models, and nonlinear models.  Focusing on applications, this course explores: the analysis of repeated measures ANOVA, multivariate approaches, random-effects regression, covariance-pattern models, generalized-estimating equations and generalizations, latent variable methods including finite mixture modelling, and likelihood methods.  Students will develop expertise using the SAS and R computer packages, although no previous programming experience will be assumed.  Grading is based on homework and computer assignments and a project, as well as several exams.

General description

Knowledge about statistical methods and data analysis is of great importance in almost any field of research. In this course, general concepts of statistics will be provided so that students can be able to independently carry out a small scale empirical research with the statistical software SPSS or R. After the course, students should be familiar with the basic concepts of statistics, ranging from descriptive statistics, basic inference (estimation, confidence intervals and hypothesis testing), linear models (analysis of variance, simple and multiple linear regression), non-parametric tests and logistic regression.

Enrolment for University Studies

Space is limited in this course due to computer room capacity. Priority will be granted for the first enrolments, based on the proportions: 60% PhD students and 40% for BSc and MSc students.

Content

It is quite common that we do not get all the information we want for  our statistical analysis. For example, in medical research a person can  refuse to provide certain information they feel sensitive, such as  weight, substance abuse, sexual orientation etc. Particularly, missing  data in longitudinal studies is more the rule than an exception. Missing  data in statistical analysis causes all sorts of problems. For example,  the desired statistical method cannot be directly applied; loss of  information or the results obtained can be biased if the analysis is not  done properly accomplished. The course introduces various missing data  mechanisms and their effects on statistical analysis. In addition, it  presents and evaluates some of the commonly used methods for statistical  analysis with missing data. Also advanced methods are presented, as well as special methods for the analysis of  longitudinal data including likelihood-based methods and multiple imputation.
