Reference on longitudinal models?

Antonio Ramos writes: The book with Hill has very little on longitudinal models. So do you recommended any reference to complement your book on covariance structures typical from these models, such as AR(1), Antedependence, Factor Analytic, etc? I am very much interest in BUGS code for these basic models as well as how to extend [...]

Convergence of eigenvalues of sample covariance matrices

Academics / Mathematics : Chapter Zero (4 years ago)

I’m thinking about how to measure the convergence of a sample covariance matrix to the covariance matrix. To be specific, let, then we have by the law of large numbers. Both the sample covariance matrix and the covariance matrices a... Read Post

Misunderstanding analysis of covariance

Academics / Mathematics : Statistical Modeling, Causal Inference, and Social Science (3 years ago)

Jeremy Miles writes: Are you familiar with Miller and Chapman’s (2001) article: Misunderstanding Analysis of Covariance saying that ANCOVA (and therefore, I suppose regression) should not be used when groups differ on a covariate. I... Read Post

References (with code) for Bayesian hierarchical (multilevel) modeling and structural equation modeling

Academics / Mathematics : Statistical Modeling, Causal Inference, and Social Science (9 months ago)

A student writes: I am new to Bayesian methods. While I am reading your book, I have some questions for you. I am interested in doing Bayesian hierarchical (multi-level) linear regression (e.g., random-intercept model) and Bayesian ... Read Post
