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.
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
