DATA ANALYSIS TRAINING INSTITUTE OF CONNECTICUT (DATIC)
University of Connecticut
Dyadic Analysis Using SEM June 25-29, 2012
Instructors: David A. Kenny, Randi Garcia, & Tessa V. West
The workshop on dyadic data analysis will focus on data where both members of a dyad are measured on the same set of variables. Among the topics to be covered are the measurement of non-independence, the actor-partner interdependence and common fate models, mediation and moderation of dyadic effects, and growth curve models of dyadic data. Most of the focus is on distinguishable dyads (e.g., husbands and wives). The software package used in the workshop will be Amos, and it is presumed that participants have some familiarity with Structural Equation Modeling (e.g., model specification, chi square difference, and model fit).
DATIC, founded in 2003 by David A. Kenny, offers professional development summer workshops in a variety of modern data analytic techniques. All workshops are geared toward researchers who wish to utilize these techniques in their own work. The maximum enrollment for all DATIC week-long workshops is 24 students, which allows for personal contact with the instructors and a great deal of hands-on learning. Although all workshops are introductory, they do assume familiarity with traditional statistical techniques such as multiple regression, as well as familiarity with a general purpose statistical software package, such as SPSS, SAS, R, Stata, etc. This summer, DATIC will offer 5 week-long training institutes on a variety of data analysis topics. The cost of the workshops is $1100 if registration and payment are received prior to March 1st. Online registration for the workshops is now open.
