This course provides a general introduction to analysing a large variety of data and research designs using Generalized Linear Models (GLMs). Over three days, participants are guided through the process of dealing with data and software, defining statistical models, inputting these into a statistical analysis package ® and then presenting and interpreting the results.
GLMs provide a powerful and economical method for analysing continuous, count and categorical data and also allow the use of standard graphical tools for presenting and interpreting results. Although this course covers advanced topics, including logit models, interactions, diagnostics and variable-selection techniques, it is designed specifically for postgraduate researchers who may have little experience with statistics or computing.
Full documentation (including lecture nots, additional reading , exercises and data sets) will be made available to all participants in advance of the course.
Booking will open at 12pm on 3rd December
