ESM Data Analysis Course
Organized by Wolfgang Viechtbauer, Maastricht University.
The purpose of this course is therefore to describe how intensive longitudinal data can be analysed with appropriate mixed-effects models. After a brief introduction to ESM (and related methods) and the data structures that arise from studies using such data collection techniques, we will examine models that can account for the multilevel/hierarchical structure of the data (i.e., repeated observations nested within individuals)
