As part of CESSDA partners participation in the COORDINATE project, a free lecture on longitudinal research and analysis of longitudinal data will be held on November 17, 2024, from 11:00 to 12:30, online via Zoom.

The lecture on Methodological and Analytical Aspects of Longitudinal Research


The 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.

The goal of the COORDINATE project is to mobilise the community of researchers and organisations to advance the coordinated development of the birth cohort and survey research on children's wellbeing in Europe. CESSDA ERIC is one of the beneficiaries in the project.

Please follow information on the COORDINATE project website for updates about registration for the course:
