Course Description: 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. Additional topics may include Bayesian analysis for generalized linear models and generalized mixed effect models.
The R statistical computing package is used as an integral part of the course.
For students enrolled in STAT7030, there may be alternative assignment or examination problems.
Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:
- Understand the role of generalised linear modelling techniques (GLMs) in modern applied statistics and implement methodology.
- Understand the underlying assumptions for GLMs and perform diagnostic checks; appreciate potential problems.
- Perform statistical analysis using statistical software in addition to learning the underlying theory and methodologies.
- Achieve a higher working-level understanding of the statistical techniques used (beyond ideas and processes involved).
