UCLA Statistical Consulting Seminars and Workshops

Seminars and Workshops, Winter 2016

Introduction to Mplus 7.4 Thursday, February 18 from 9 a.m. to 12 noon, 5628 Math Sciences (Visualization Portal) sign up here .

This workshop will provide an introduction to Mplus, including syntax and command structure. Several types of analyses will be discussed, including various types of regression models, path models, exploratory factor analysis and confirmatory factor analysis. We will also discuss how to free, constrain and test parameters. The link to the notes for this workshop is here .

Non-UCLA researchers may attend this workshop.


Multiple Imputation in Stata Tuesday, February 23 from 9 a.m. to 12 noon, 5628 Math Sciences (Visualization Portal) sign up here here .

This workshop will discuss commonly used techniques for handling missing data and common issues that could arise when these techniques are used. The focus of this workshop will be multiple imputation, as it is one of the most commonly used modern methods for handling missing data. The workshop will cover multiple imputation using the multivariate normal and imputation by chained equations as well as imputation diagnostics. The link to the notes for this workshop is here.

Non-UCLA researchers may attend this workshop.


Introduction to Regression with SPSS Thursday, March 3 from 9 a.m. to 12 noon, 5628 Math Sciences (Visualization Portal) sign up here here .

This workshop will introduce some fundamental topics in regression analysis using SPSS. The workshop will be divided into three parts. We will begin with a brief overview of simple and multiple regression, tying it back to familiar concepts such as correlation and t-tests. The second part will introduce regression diagnostics such as checking for normality of residuals, unusual and influential data, homoscedasticity and multicollinearity. Finally, we will proceed to SPSS GLM to interpret a two-way categorical interaction with dummy variables, and multiple category predictors.

Non-UCLA researchers may attend this workshop.


R graphics: Introduction to ggplot2 Thursday, March 10 from 9 a.m. to 12 noon, 5628 Math Sciences (Visualization Portal) sign up here here .

This workshop introduces the use of the ggplot2, a powerful but easy-to-learn R package capable of producing some of the most attractive graphics of any statistical package. The underlying grammar of the graphics is taught with examples that emphasize data exploration and displaying the results of statistical modeling. The workshop assumes some basic knowledge of R.

Non-UCLA researchers may attend this workshop.
