With its Jour Fixe-Presentations, which include reports on results and progress of research, the SOCIUM offers the wider public a regional discussion forum on issues of social inequality and social policy.

Additionally, every semester scholars and practitioners with professional backgrounds are invited to the SOCIUM in order to analyze questions on health economics and health policies. These lectures of the Colloquium on Health Policy (Gesundheitspolitisches Kolloquium) are also open to the public.

Established to strengthen the University’s high-profile area Social sciences the bridge professorship “Qualitative Methods and Microsociology” offers lectures and international workshops on Mixed Methods, Social Network Analysis and Comparative Methods.

The SOCIUM also organizes a variety of conferences, lectures and workshops to present and discuss recent societal developments regarding inequality and social policy research.

With the increasing availability of longitudinal data, researchers need to decide the best models for their data.

A wide variety of models have been proposed, many of which are available using Structural Equation Models (SEM).  This course will review some of the major longitudinal SEMs.  Among others this will include autoregressive/crosslag models, latent growth curve models, and Autoregressive Latent Trajectory (ALT) models.  The workshop will present each type of model and illustrate their estimation and fit with empirical data.

Some knowledge of SEMs is assumed.

Ken A. Bollen is the Henry Rudolph Immerwahr Distinguished Professor in the Department of Sociology and the Department of Psychology and Neuroscience at UNC at Chapel Hill.  He is a faculty member in the Quantitative Psychology Program in the Thurstone Psychometric Laboratory.  He also is chair of the Methods Core and a Fellow of the Carolina Population Center and a Faculty member of the Center for Developmental Science. Since 1980 he has been an instructor in the ICPSR Summer Program in Quantitative Methods of Social Research. Bollen's primary areas of statistical research are in structural equation models, longitudinal methods, and latent growth curve models.
