Announcements: Have a wonderful spring break! Due to the ENAR conference, the lectures for March 20 and 21 will be recorded in advance. Moreover, I have decided to switch the units on longitudinal data analysis and time-to-event outcomes. This is now reflected on the syllabus, in the notes below, and on the homework assignments. Please be certain you have the most recent copies of these.
Syllabus: The Spring 2023 syllabus can be found here.
Lecture notes: The lecture notes for this course are posted here. They are not to be copied without permission of the instructor.

Additionally, the problems from a prior offering of this this course are provided here, along with the keys. You have access to all of last year’s data sets, and so you should view this as an additional resource to practice—particularly on material you find challenging.
Data: Data sets and documentation can be found here (you will need the password).
