Longitudinal Data Analysis using Discrete and Continuous Responses

This course is for scientists and analysts who want to analyze observational data collected over time. It is not for SAS users who have collected data in a complicated experimental design. They should take the Mixed Models Analyses Using SAS® course instead.

Learn how to

  • create individual and group profile plots and sample variograms
  • use PROC MIXED to fit a general linear mixed model and a random coefficient model
  • plot information criteria for models with selected covariance structures
  • generate diagnostic plots in PROC MIXED
  • fit a binary generalized linear mixed model in PROC GLIMMIX
  • fit an ordinal generalized linear mixed model and a model with spline effects in PROC GLIMMIX
  • fit a binary GEE model in PROC GENMOD.

Who should attend

Epidemiologists, social scientists, physical scientists, and business analysts
