NUS Statistics Module Review: ST4242 Analysis of Longitudinal Data

this module kicks start by introducing the two forms of longitudinal data.. namely the wide and long format. thereafter, the module teaches you various model formats such as linear mixed models, generalised linear models and others. you will get to understand smoothing and be introduced to various covariance and correlation structures when modelling various data.

hmm.. to be honest i not quite how to put a feeling to this module. but my first impression would be mildly challenging yet interesting. the models you get to learn are pretty new. the presentation of observations and what not in matrix forms are more complex than any previous modules you read.. because in this case you get an individual recorded at various timepoints having numerous variables.. so yeah go figure. hard work is needed to understand this module well and to tackle the assessments well.
