Lecture on Methodological and Analytical Aspects of Longitudinal Research

About the Event

One of the goals of the COORDINATE project is to facilitate improved access to survey data on child and youth well-being. Of particular value are data from longitudinal studies, as they help in understanding long-term trends and the impact of policies and interventions. Whether you're planning your own longitudinal study or analysing existing data, it's essential to understand the methodology.

This lecture will include an introductory overview of challenges that typically occur when theorising, designing, and conducting longitudinal studies. Methodological challenges will be described using examples and recommendations based on our previous experience in designing and conducting longitudinal studies among adolescents. The lecture will conclude with brief guidelines for choosing a method for analysing longitudinal data.

Academic researchers, ranging from PhD students to full professors, policy practitioners, and anyone interested in longitudinal research methodology and/or the analysis of longitudinal data, are warmly welcomed to participate in this event. Attendance is free of charge.

The lecture is offered as part of the COORDINATE project and organised by the Croatian Social Science Data Archive, a service provider of CESSDA ERIC.
