Free, Two-Hour, Online Workshop on Latent Transition Analysis

February 9, 2018:online workshop lta

For our next 1 & 1 workshop, Methodology Center Associate Director Bethany Bray will present an introduction to latent transition analysis (LTA). 1 & 1 workshops consist of a one-hour live video presentation on a method followed by a one-hour question-and-answer session with the presenter. After the presentation, Bethany will accept questions via instant message and answer them live. The workshop will be held on Thursday, March 29, from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m. ET.

LTA and latent class analysis (LCA) are closely related methods. LCA identifies unobservable (latent) subgroups within a population based on individuals’ responses to multiple observed variables. LTA is an extension of LCA that uses longitudinal data to identify movement between the subgroups over time. Workshop participants should possess basic familiarity with LCA before attending. For an introduction to LCA, see Collins and Lanza (2010) or Lanza, Bray, and Collins (2013).

The 1 & 1 will be hosted via Zoom webinar at https://psu.zoom.us/j/618654311. The workshop can accommodate up to 500 participants, so all interested people should be able to attend. If you try to attend the workshop but are unable to log on for any reason, please send an email to mchelpdesk@psu.edu. We hope you will join us.
