Developing graphical and inferential tools for social data analysis

  • Goldstein, Harvey (Principal Investigator)

Project Details

Description

In recent years statistical methods have been developed for analysing complex social data known as multilevel models, these procedures have found wide use in the social sciences such as education, economics, demography, politics etc. With the increasing power of personal computers and the quality of graphic displays it is now possible to implement more powerful methods that are very computer intensive and require sophisticated levels of understanding from users. These procedures promise to provide new insights into complex data structures. The project aims to make it easier for social scientists to gain access to these procedures via the use of informative graphical interfaces for the specification and analysis of these complex structures. The project will develop the existing MLwiN software interface for this purpose and provide exemplar materials.
