This is the 6th workshop in a 6-part statistics series

Introduction to mixed-effects models

Methods like Regression and ANOVA model the mean structure of the observed data while making specific assumptions about the variance. We will demonstrate with examples that ignoring the lack of independence due to repeated measurements on the same unit or clusters of related units may lead to wrong conclusions. We will show how mixed-effects models are used in such cases to model the variance structure of the data as well as the mean.
