Description

To provide a practical introduction to the fundamentals of linear regression modelling, with emphasis on application to real data and problems.

This course is of interest to anyone majoring in statistics and forestry, as well as students from other disciplines (eg. biology, commerce, etc) who want to increase the breadth of their statistical knowledge base.

Regression models are the most widely used statistical tools for examining the relationships among variables. We cover the core concepts in regression modelling, with an emphasis on problem solving as applied to real data. We use R, one of the mostly widely used statistical packages, but no prior knowledge of R is assumed.

Learning Outcomes

On completing this course you will

* be able to analyze data using simple and multiple regression models as well as logistic regression
* understand the relationship between regression and ANOVA
* understand diagnostics for testing modelling assumptions
* understand methods for model selection
* be able to interpret computer output, and be able to write reports that analyse data and interpret computer output
