STAT450-19S1 (C) Semester One 2019

Advanced Statistical Modelling

15 points
18 Feb 2019 - 23 Jun 2019

Description

This course focuses on recent advances in modelling techniques for analysing data including mixed models and nonparametric tests.

This course provides an introduction to a range of statistical techniques used in the analysis of spatial data. It will cover the basic concepts and techniques of spatial data analysis (SDA) and provide a wide range of applications examples from various fields such as geology, demographics, epidemiology and environmental sciences.

A comprehensive lab programme uses a variety of software packages (including ArcGIS, Geoda, geoR and WinBUGS) to explore and analyse spatial data using the techniques taught in the course.

STAT450 is dual coded with GISC404.
