Statistical Software at the Centre for Multilevel Modelling
Bill Browne (University of Bristol)
Friday 9th December, 2011 15:00-16:00 Maths 203
In this talk, a general history of developments in statistical software at the Centre for Multilevel Modelling, first at the IOE in London and then continued in Bristol will be given. We will discuss developments that lead to the MLwiN package and other projects like the MLPowSim and REALCOM packages. We will then describe our ambitious new ESRC funded E-STAT project which builds on initial concepts from Jon Rasbash and is a collaboration with academics from Southampton and several other UK universities. We will describe how the project aims to inter-operate with other software packages and demonstrate the current incarnation of the STAT -JR software.
