Wednesday, March 25, 2020, 12:30pm to 1:30pm


Online via Zoom - meeting info to follow


In social science research, we often have panel data (multiple units with repeated observations for each unit).  We often wonder which panel data models to use.  Most economists prefer fixed effect models.  Sometimes people use multi-level models.  In this talk, I'd like to talk about multi-level models: what are they, when should we use them, and why.
