PhD course Generalized Linear Models

when 14 June 2018 - 15 June 2018
language English
duration 1 week
credits 0.5 EC
fee EUR 290

In this module we study how to analyse data that are not normally distributed. We look at fractions (logistic regression), counts (Poisson regression, log-linear models), ordinal data (threshold models), and overdispersion. We discuss (quasi-) maximum likelihood estimation and the deviance. In computer practicals participants can familiarize themselves with models and methods. The main statistical software used in this course is R.
