Factor Analysis and Structural Equation Modelling: An introduction using
Stata and Mplus ( http://www.lshtm.ac.uk/prospectus/short/sfasem.html )
at The London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine
 
16 - 18 February 2011
 

Course outline
Most courses on factor analysis and structural equation modelling
concentrate on the use of traditional factor analytic models with
interval level data and neglect the latest developments within the
Generalised Latent Variable Modelling framework. The course will discuss
the current state of the art with respect to factor analysis and
structural equation modelling, while retaining a practical focus.
Participants will acquire awareness of the new available methods and
gain competence in applying and combining these in simple settings. Who
Should Attend
Participants are expected to be applied statisticians, social
scientists and epidemiologists with an interest in factor analysis and
structural equation modelling. Familiarity with regression models would
be an advantage. Course Content
By the end of the course participants will be able to:
Understand measurement principles such as reliability and precision
Perform Exploratory Factor Analysis and Confirmatory Factor Analysis
with a mixture of binary/ordinal/interval data.
Estimate and interpret path analytic and structural models
Estimate and interpret growth curve and latent class models
Develop awareness of the common threads across these methods
Gain practical experience in using these methods using Mplus and Stata
Teaching Methods and Course Materials

All teaching is carried out at the London School of Hygiene and
Tropical Medicine nearby and consists of a combination of formal
lectures and computer practicals. Comprehensive course notes will be
given to participants at the start of the course.

Methods of Assessment
Each participant will receive a certificate of attendance. There is no
formal assessment.Course Fee
The total course fee is £650, which covers participation in the course
