This is a book about applied multilevel and longitudinal modeling. Other terms for multilevel models include hierarchical models, random-effects or random-coefficient models, mixed-effects models, or simply mixed models. Longitudinal data are also referred to as panel data, repeated measures, or cross-sectional time series. A popular type of multilevel model for longitudinal data is the growth-curve model. Our emphasis is on explaining the models and their assumptions, applying the methods to real data, and interpreting results.

An Introduction to Stata for Health Researchers

  • Publisher: Stata Press



Designed to assist those working in health research, An Introduction to Stata for Health Researchers, explains how to maximize the versatile Strata program for data management, statistical analysis, and graphics for research. The first nine chapters are devoted to becoming familiar with Stata and the essentials of effective data management. The text is also a valuable companion reference for more advanced users. It covers a host of useful applications for health researchers including the analysis of stratified data via epitab and regression models; linear, logistic, and Poisson regression; survival analysis including Cox regression, standardized rates, and correlation/ROC analysis of measurements.

This text demonstrates how computing power has expanded the role of graphics in analyzing, exploring, and experimenting with raw data. It is primarily intended for students whose research requires more than an introductory statistics course, but who may not have an extensive background in rigorous mathematics. It's also suitable for courses with students of varying mathematical abilities. Hamilton provides students with a practical, realistic, and graphical approach to regression analysis so that they are better prepared to solve real, sometimes messy problems. For students and professors who prefer a heavier mathematical emphasis, the author has included optional sections throughout the text where the formal, mathematical development of the material is explained in greater detail. REGRESSION WITH GRAPHICS is appropriate for use with any (or no) statistical computer package. However, Hamilton used STAT A in the development of the text due to its ease of application and sophisticated graphics capabilities. (STATA is available in a student package from Duxbury including a tutorial by the same author: Hamilton, STATISTICS WITH STAT A, 5.0, 1998; ISBN: 0-534-31874-6.)

An Introduction to Survival Analysis Using Stata, Third Edition provides the foundation to understand various approaches for analyzing time-to-event data. It is not only a tutorial for learning survival analysis but also a valuable reference for using Stata to analyze survival data. Although the book assumes knowledge of statistical principles, simple probability, and basic Stata, it takes a practical, rather than mathematical, approach to the subject. This updated third edition highlights new features of Stata 11, including competing-risks analysis and the treatment of missing values via multiple imputation. Other additions include new diagnostic measures after Cox regression, Stata's new treatment of categorical variables and interactions, and a new syntax for obtaining prediction and diagnostics after Cox regression. After reading this book, you will understand the formulas and gain intuition about how various survival analysis estimators work and what information they exploit. You will also acquire deeper, more comprehensive knowledge of the syntax, features, and underpinnings of Stata's survival analysis routines.

"Your book has changed my perception and attitude towards statistics. It is very well written, the language is completely user friendly and the progression of new concepts within each chapter is fantastic. Although my class is only on chapter 5 at this point, I have found my interest in the concepts and order in which you introduce them becoming greater. I thank you with very much appreciation as I was someone who dreaded taking statistics and thought I hated it!" - Jessica Maes, graduate student The Fourth Edition of Neil J. Salkind's bestselling text introduces students to the fundamentals of basic statistics in an informative, personable, and unintimidating way. The author expertly guides students through various statistical procedures, beginning with basic descriptive statistics and correlation and graphical representation of data and ending with inferential techniques including analysis of variance.

Statistics in Criminal Justice

  • Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media



Statistics in Criminal Justice takes an approach that emphasizes the application and interpretation of statistics in research in crime and justice. This text is meant for both students and researchers who want to gain a basic understanding of common statistical methods used in this field. In general, the text relies on a building-block approach, meaning that each chapter helps to prepare the student for the chapters that follow. It also means that the level of sophistication of the text increases as the text progresses. Throughout the text there is an emphasis on comprehension and interpretation, rather than computation. However, as the statistical methods discussed become more complex and demanding to compute, there is increasing use and integration of statistical software. This approach is meant to provide the reader with an accessible, yet sophisticated understanding of statistics that can be used to examine real-life criminal justice problems with popular statistical software programs. The primary goal of the text is to give students and researchers a basic understanding of statistical concepts and methods that will leave them with the confidence and the tools for tackling more complex problems on their own. New to the 4th Edition · New chapter on experimental design and the analysis of experimental data. · New chapter on multi-level models, including growth-curve models. · New computer exercises throughout the text to illustrate the use of both SPSS and Stata. · Revision of exercises at the end of each chapter that places greater emphasis on using statistical software. · Additional resources on the text’s web site for instructors and students, including answers to selected problems, syntax for replicating text examples in SPSS and Stata, and other materials that can be used to supplement the use of the text.

Change is constant in everyday life. Infants crawl and then walk, children learn to read and write, teenagers mature in myriad ways, the elderly become frail and forgetful. Beyond these natural processes and events, external forces and interventions instigate and disrupt change: test scores may rise after a coaching course, drug abusers may remain abstinent after residential treatment. By charting changes over time and investigating whether and when events occur, researchers reveal the temporal rhythms of our lives. Applied Longitudinal Data Analysis is a much-needed professional book for empirical researchers and graduate students in the behavioral, social, and biomedical sciences. It offers the first accessible in-depth presentation of two of today's most popular statistical methods: multilevel models for individual change and hazard/survival models for event occurrence (in both discrete- and continuous-time). Using clear, concise prose and real data sets from published studies, the authors take you step by step through complete analyses, from simple exploratory displays that reveal underlying patterns through sophisticated specifications of complex statistical models. Applied Longitudinal Data Analysis offers readers a private consultation session with internationally recognized experts and represents a unique contribution to the literature on quantitative empirical methods.
