This is the sixth workshop in a 6-part statistics series.

NOTE: Due to the large # of statistical software available, this session will not be about any specific software but, rather, the methodology behind the software.

Methods like Regression and ANOVA model the mean structure of the observed data while making specific assumptions about the variance. Mixed effects models allow us to model the variance structure of the data as well as the mean. Data that contain repeated measurements on the same statistical unit or clusters of related statistical units are examples when mixed effects models should be used.
