Multilevel Conference

Post conference: ‘On the Joys of Missing Data’

The post conference workshop on April 11 on ‘On the Joys of Missing Data: Planned Missing Data Designs in Longitudinal Studies’ is taught by Prof. Todd D. Little

I will discuss the mechanisms of missing data, the modern treatments that can remediate the potentially deleterious influences of unplanned missing data, and then I will discuss the joys of planned missing data designs. Planned missing data designs have numerous advantages over complete case data collection. I will highlight these advantages conceptually in this talk. The post conference workshop will provide more details of how to properly implement such designs and conduct analyses in the context of multilevel and longitudinal designs.
