Longitudinal Research Institute

Training the next-generation of behavioral scientists.

About Longitudinal Research Institute

Starting in 2000, Jack McArdle and John R. Nesselroade and their students in the quantitative psychology group at the University of Virginia began offering summer workshops on analysis of longitudinal data analysis. Joined by other leaders in the field, the Longitudinal Research Institute instructors propelled forward and shared the latest thinking and practice on how to conceptualize, obtain, and analyze many different kinds of longitudinal data. Workshops delivered through multiple organizations, including the American Psychological Association’s (APA) Advanced Training Institutes program wherein the APA Science Directorate selects 35+ scholars for participation an intensive week of lecture and hands-on data analysis, have trained a few thousand scholars how to discover new things in their data. Now led by a second-generation of instructors, Longitudinal Research Institute 2.0 offers online and in-person training in a growing array of advanced data analysis methods.
