This course provides a system for analysing a wide variety of data and research designs using modern methods and software. Generalized linear models are applied to analyse continuous, count and categorical data. The course covers the whole process of defining a research question, selecting and running an appropriate analytical technique and interpreting the results using graphical displays. A significant component is the practical sessions where participants analyse numerous data sets using the R statistical software. Full training and software is provided for all participants. The course also covers the coding and manipulation of data, the inclusion of categorical explanatory variables, interaction terms, model diagnostics, variable selection and editing graphical displays. The aim of the course is to provide a complete set of tools for analysing a wide variety of data using a coherent statistical theory and modern methods which are powerful and relatively easy to use.
To introduce a theoretically consistent system of analysis that can be used to analyse a wide variety of data and research designs. Practical sessions will enable participants to analyse examples of all techniques using R and the R-commander.
