              Applying the Rasch Model in Social Sciences Using R (Hardback)

              This unique text provides a step-by-step beginner's guide to applying the Rasch Model in R, a probabilistic model used by researchers across the Social Sciences to measure unobservable ( latent ) variables. Each chapter is devoted to one popular Rasch Model, ranging from the leas...t to the most complex. Through a freely available and user-friendly package, BlueSky Statistics, Lamprianou offers a range of options for presenting results, critically examines the strengths and weaknesses of applying the Rasch Model in each instance, and suggests more effective methodologies where applicable. With a focus on simple software code which does not assume extensive mathematical knowledge, the reader is initially introduced to the so-called simple Rasch Model to construct a political activism variable out of a group of dichotomously-scored questions. In subsequent chapters, the book covers everything from the Rating Scale to the Many-facets Rasch Model. The final chapter even showcases a complete mock manuscript, demonstrating how a Rasch-based paper on the identification of on-line hate speech should look like. Combining theoretical rigor and real-world examples with empirical datasets from published papers, this book is essential reading for students and researchers alike who aspire to use Rasch Models in their research.

              This is the first workbook that introduces readers to the multilevel approach to modeling with categorical outcomes using IBM SPSS Version 20. Readers learn how to set up, estimate, and interpret multilevel models with categorical outcomes. The authors walk readers step-by-step t...hrough data management, model conceptualization, and model specification issues related to single-level and multilevel models with categorical outcomes. Numerous annotated screen shots clearly demonstrate the use of the techniques and how to navigate through the program. Modeling syntax is also provided in the book 's appendix for users who prefer this approach to model development. Diagnostic tools and data management issues are introduced throughout. Examples of various types of categorical outcomes demonstrate how to set up each model and interpret the output. Extended examples in each chapter illustrate the logic of model development, interpretation of output, the context of the research questions, and the steps around which the analyses are structured. Readers can work with the examples developed in each chapter by using the corresponding data and syntax files available at www.psypress.com/9781848729568 . The book opens with a review of conceptual and methodological issues associated with investigating multilevel and longitudinal models with categorical outcomes, followed by a chapter on IBM SPSS data management techniques to facilitate working with multilevel and longitudinal data sets. Chapters 3 and 4 detail the basics of the single-level and multilevel generalized linear model for various types of categorical outcomes, trouble-shooting techniques for common programming, and typical modeling problems and solutions readers are likely to encounter. Next population-average and unit-specific longitudinal models for investigating individual or organizational developmental processes are developed. Chapter 6 focuses on single- and multilevel models using multinomial and ordinal data followe

              This extensively revised new edition reviews multilevel and longitudinal analysis. Uni-and multi-variate models are used to understand how to select and design studies and define, analyze, and interpret the results. Numerous examples from the behavioral, educational, organization...al, and social sciences allow readers to test their understanding. The new edition features input programs from Mplus 7 that demonstrate how to set up and run the models, more introductory material and learning tools, and 3 new chapters. Multilevel models from the multilevel regression and latent variable frameworks are developed. Ideal for advanced students and researchers, an introduction to statistics is assumed.

              Multilevel modelling is a data analysis method that is frequently used to investigate hierarchal data structures in educational, behavioural, health, and social sciences disciplines. Multilevel data analysis exploits data structures that cannot be adequately investigated using si...ngle-level analytic methods such as multiple regression, path analysis, and structural modelling. This text offers a comprehensive treatment of multilevel models for univariate and multivariate outcomes. It explores their similarities and differences and demonstrates why one model may be more appropriate than another, given the research objectives. New to this edition: An expanded focus on the nature of different types of multilevel data structures (e.g., cross-section, longitudinal, cross-classified, etc.) for addressing specific research goals Varied modelling methods for examining longitudinal data including random-effect and fixed-effect approaches Expanded coverage illustrating different model-building sequences and how to use results to identify possible model improvements An expanded set of applied examples used throughout the text Use of four different software packages (i.e., Mplus, R, SPSS, Stata), with selected examples of model-building input files included in the chapter appendices and a more complete set of files available online This is an ideal text for graduate courses on multilevel, longitudinal, latent variable modelling, multivariate statistics, or advanced quantitative techniques taught in psychology, business, education, health, and sociology. Recommended prerequisites are introductory univariate and multivariate statistics.
