Centre on Aging Colloquium Series, Fall 2014

The Centre on Aging (COAG) is a research intensive centre at the University of Victoria, with members engaged in aging research in its many forms, including both quantitative and qualitative methods, and longitudinal, experimental, and intervention designs. A key emphasis is on advances in the health, cognitive vitality, and well-being of an aging community. This colloquium series has been developed to highlight both substantive and methodological innovations and applications in aging research. This fall, our colloquium series emphasizes data management and statistical analysis using R software (http://www.r-project.org/) and statistical models for identifying trajectories and transitions in longitudinal studies and administrative health data. This fall series will be of general interest to researchers and students who wish to increase their expertise in statistical analysis using R.

This series will be hosted in partnership with the Department of Psychology, Education and Training Unit of Population Data BC, and the Island Health Research and Capacity Building Program.
