Workshop on multi-level analysis
Multi-level approaches to the analysis of work, care and welfare: An introductory workshop to theory, data and analyses, to be held at Tilburg University, the Netherlands, 15-17 November 2010.
The European Data Centre for Work and Welfare (a part of the network of excellence, Reconciliation of Work and Welfare: RECwowe) is accepting applications for the Data Demonstration Workshop
Multi-level approaches to the analysis of work, care and welfare: An introductory workshop to theory, data and analyses
* Dates: 15-17 November, 2010
* Hosted by: European Data Center for Work and Welfare, EDACwowe
* Workshop location: Tilburg University, The Netherlands
* Organisers: Wim van Oorschot, Heejung Chung
* Participation fee: Free + accommodations provided by EDACwowe (see below)
Increasingly researchers are interested in cross-national comparison and in the effects of socio-economic, socio-cultural and institutional contexts on people's behaviour, attitudes and beliefs. Various comparative methods and multi-level analyses techniques provide tools for such analyses and are gaining more interest in the field of social sciences.
This EDACwowe Workshop aims to increase the participant's understanding of the theories and practices of cross-national comparison and multi-level approaches, along with better knowledge of how to find and set up comparative and multi-level data sets using the data resources provided through the EDACwowe website.
More specifically, it seeks to introduce, explain and demonstrate the combined use of data from different levels (country, region, individual) and character (quantitative, quantified qualitative data) in simultaneous analyses.
The workshop will pay attention to case-oriented small N comparisons, as well as to variable oriented large N comparison. It will include supervised practical assignments on data data retrieval and analysis, as well as peer discussions of data issues and problems.
Note that this is NOT a workshop where advanced statistical methods of multi-level modelling are trained. It has an introductory aim, with emphasis on cross-national and multi-level analysis theory, data, and various analytical techniques.
The course program consists of lectures, workshops, training and consultation.
