This course teaches you how to analyze linear mixed models using the MIXED procedure. A brief introduction to analyzing generalized linear mixed models using the GLIMMIX procedure is also included.
Learn How Toanalyze data (including binary data) with random effects fit random coefficient models and hierarchical linear models analyze repeated measures data obtain and interpret the best linear unbiased predictions perform residual and influence diagnostic analysis address convergence issues.
