This online course, extends the Bayesian modeling framework to cover hierarchical models, and to add flexibility to standard Bayesian modeling problems. Participants will learn how to define three stage hierarchical models and to implement them using Winbugs, in multilevel, meta-analytic and regression applications. Continuous, count and binary outcomes are covered. Participants will also learn how to assess goodness-of-fit.
- Week 1 – Defining Bayesian Hierarchical Models
- Week 2 – Bayesian Hierarchical Models for Meta Analysis
- Week 3 – Multi-Level and Panel Models
- Week 4 – More on Multilevel Models; Hierarchical Bayesian Regression Models
