LATENT MARKOV MODELS WITH APPLICATIONS 


Description & Topics Covered

The course “Latent Markov models with applications” aims at introducing the main basic theory of the latent Markov models, that are tailored for the analysis of panel data. Panel data are collected repeatedly over time for the same units. Basic and advanced methods to develop latent Markov models are explained also when explanatory variables are collected. An insight of the underlying assumptions, which are based on stochastic processes, is provided as well as guidelines on how to apply the models for the analysis of longitudinal data. Response variables can be quantitative or categorical, and even incomplete for some subjects. The inferential procedures are explained in detail both from a classical and Bayesian inferential perspective. The applications and exercises are developed by using the R environment.

The course will in part follow the theory of the Latent Markov models explained in the book Bartolucci F., Farcomeni A., Pennoni F. (2013). Latent Markov models for longitudinal data, Chapman and Hall/CRC, Boca Raton, ISBN 9781439817087 (http://www.crcpress.com/product/isbn/9781439817087)

The first part of the school will be will be dedicated to the basic model’s features and to applicative examples by illustrating also some data analysis issues, and the second to more extensive theoretical aspects with illustrative examples and exercises in different fields of application.

Target Audience

The course “Latent Markov models with applications” is mainly dedicated to students from academia and it is also intended for experts from industry and consultancy with little or no background in probability who would like to apply latent Markov models. It is devoted to SIS members, researchers as well as Ph.D. students. The course is limited to 70 participants and will be held in English.

Program Info

A detailed program will be provided in July where also Participants' Introductions and Participants' Talks of selected works will be scheduled
