This workshop introduces the Bayesian multilevel model framework. Bayesian methods allow for an extremely flexible approach for estimating hierarchical models with a variety different types of dependent variables. Topics covered will be the hierarchical linear model, as well as a models with limited dependent variables, summarizing results, in and out of sample predictions, and measures of model fit. No prior knowledge of Bayesian modeling is required, but will be beneficial.
