Terms and conditions
The course is designed for people with knowledge of basic statistics who want to learn more about regression and analysis of variance (ANOVA). Please 'Enrol Now' as an expression of interest.
This course covers techniques that can be used to analyse data with continuous and categorical variables. The course will begin with simple linear regression and then proceed to approaches that can be used with more than two variables such as multiple regression. ANOVA with interactions and blocking will also be covered. The course will end with techniques that address the analysis of binary or ordinal variables.
Some basic familiarity with R is assumed (either taking An Introduction to R or Introductory Statistics in R or similar level of understanding)
Day 1: Simple linear regression, multiple regression, polynomial regression, regression model diagnostics, model selection.
- Day 2: One way ANOVA, blocking, simple interactions, more complex interactions, analysis of covariance, ANOVA model diagnostics.
- Day 3: Introduction to logistic regression, odds and risk ratios, multiple logistic regression, model building in logistic regression, assessing goodness of fit and model diagnostics, ordinal logistic regression.
