ANALYSIS OF REPEATED MEASURES

STA5ARM

2017

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

Repeated measures data is used commonly in many disciplines including health, psychology, economics and biology. This subject provides students with the knowledge of how to perform the appropriate statistical analysis in a repeated measures data environment by introducing models such as the Repeated Measures ANOVA, Marginal models, Linear mixed models and Correlated random effect models. Students will learn how to examine research questions by applying these models using the R statistical package.
