This free workshop will cover exploration, analysis and interpretation of data from twin studies. The workshop will focus on understanding when and why particular statistical models and tests are appropriate, the assumptions underlying these, how these can be tested and what the results of the models mean in the context of specific research questions. The methods will be illustrated using real data. Familiarity with Stata or R and a basic understanding of linear and logistic regression is assumed.
