Unit-Specific vs. Population-Average Models

One thing that I always felt uncomfortable in multilevel modeling (MLM) is the concept of a unit-specific (US)/subject-specific model vs. a population-average (PA) model. I’ve come across it several times, but for some reason I haven’t really made an effort to fully understand it.

Weighted Least Squares

Asymptotic Standard Errors in CFA

Define True Model and Simulate Some Data Define Log-Likelihood Function Defining \(\mathcal{l}(\boldsymbol{\mathbf{\Sigma}}; S)\) in R: MLE Asymptotic Standard Errors Using expected information Observed information (using Hessian) MLM/MLMV MLR Bibliography In our lab meeting I’m going to present the article by Maydeu-Olivares (2017), which talked about standard errors (SEs) of the maximum likelihood estimators (MLEs) in SEM models.
