This workshop is sponsored by the Institute for Aging Research at the Hebrew SeniorLife.


We offer a three day latent variable methods workshop that provides an introduction to applied longitudinal data analysis using Mplus software. The emphasis is on operational and inferential aspects of using Mplus to address measurement or development questions in research on aging. The format of the course will a balanced mix of didactic sessions and hands-on training/demonstration sessions. The workshop is led by applied researchers who use Mplus software in their day-to-day research to address longitudinal data analysis (and other) applied research questions.

What distinguishes this workshop is a focus on applied use of Mplus software (building, fitting and interpreting measurement models), rather than a broad survey of modeling approaches capable of being addressed with Mplus or a technical treatment of the statistical theory underlying the modeling approach.
