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.
Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:
- Explain in detail the role of generalised linear modelling techniques (GLMs) in modern applied statistics and implement methodology;
- Demonstrate an in-depth understanding of the underlying assumptions for GLMs and perform diagnostic checks whilst identifying potential problems; and
- Perform statistical analyses using statistical software, incorporating underlying theory and methodologies.
- Typical assessment may include, but is not restricted to: exams, assignments, quizzes, presentations and other assessment as appropriate (100) [LO 1,2,3]
