Generalized Linear Models : A system for Data Analysis and Test Selection
|Dates:||20 February 2013|
|Times:||10:00 - 12:00|
|What is it:||Seminar|
|Organiser:||School of Arts, Languages and Cultures|
|Who is it for:||Current University students, University staff|
This session demonstrates how a regression-based analytical system can replace the more traditional cook-book approach that still commonly forms the basis of many introductory statistical courses in the social sciences. Analyses based on generalized linear models (GLMs) offer significant advantages in terms of their felxibility and power and also offer a much simpler system for teaching; one that is based on a solid theoretical base. The huge selection of hypothesis tests that are available may be represented using, essentially, a single model, which can be applied to different types of data and study design.
A system of data analysis based on GLMs is presented along with a discussion of how a 'simple' linear model can be applied to continuous and categorical data. Participants are not required to have any previous statistical or computer experience.
