This course is intended to introduce students to generalised linear modelling methods, with emphasis on, but not limited to, common methods for analyzing categorical data. Topics covered include a review of multiple linear regression and the analysis of variance, log-linear models for contingency tables, logistic regression for binary response data, Poisson regression, model selection and model checking, mixed effects models and some additional topics to be agreed with students.
Learning OutcomesUpon successful completion of the requirements for this course, students should have the
knowledge and skills to:
1. Explain in detail the role of generalised linear modelling techniques (GLMs) in modern applied statistics and implement methodology.
2. Demonstrate an in-depth understanding of the underlying assumptions for GLMs and perform diagnostic checks; appreciate potential problems.
3. Perform statistical analysis using statistical software in addition to learning the
underlying theory and methodologies.
4. Achieve a higher working-level understanding of the statistical techniques used
(beyond ideas and processes involved).
