About this course

Course code TPLONG93
Duration 3 Days

  • This course is for scientists and analysts who want to analyse observational data collected over time. It is not for SAS users who have collected data in a complicated experimental design; they should take the Mixed Models Analyses Using SAS course instead.

Prerequisites

Before attending this course, you should be able to

  • execute SAS programs and create SAS data sets. You can gain this experience by completing the SAS Programming 1: Essentials course.
  • fit models using the GLM and REG procedures in SAS/STAT software. You can gain this experience by completing the Statistics 2: ANOVA and Regression course.

Who should attend

  • Epidemiologists, social scientists, physical scientists, and business analysts

Delegates will learn how to

Learn how to

  • create individual and group profile plots and sample variograms
  • use PROC MIXED to fit a general linear mixed model and a random coefficient model
  • plot information criteria for models with selected covariance structures
  • generate diagnostic plots in PROC MIXED
  • fit a binary generalized linear mixed model in PROC GLIMMIX
  • fit an ordinal generalized linear mixed model and a model with spline effects in PROC GLIMMIX
  • fit a binary GEE model in PROC GENMOD.

Outline

Longitudinal Data Analysis Concepts

  • understanding the merits and analytical problems associated with longitudinal data analysis

Exploratory Data Analysis

  • graphing individual and group profiles
  • identifying cross-sectional and longitudinal patterns

General Linear Mixed Model

  • understanding the concepts behind the linear mixed model
  • examining the different covariance structures available in PROC MIXED
  • fitting a general linear mixed model in PROC MIXED

Evaluating Covariance Structures

  • creating a sample variogram that illustrates the error components in your model
  • plotting information criteria for models with selected covariance structures

Model Development, Interpretation, and Assessment

  • learning the model building strategies in PROC MIXED
  • creating interaction plots
  • specifying heterogeneity in the covariance structure
  • computing predictions using EBLUPs
