This course builds directly upon the foundations laid in Regression II, with a focus on successfully applying linear and generalized linear regression models. After a brief review of the linear regression model, the course addresses a series of practical issues in the application of such models: presentation and discussion of results (including tabular, graphical, and textual modes of presentation); fitting, presentation, and interpretation of two- and three-way multiplicative interaction terms; model specification for dealing with nonlinearities in covariate effects; and post-estimation diagnostics, including specification and sensitivity testing. The course then moves to a discussion of generalized linear models, including logistic, probit, and Poisson regression, as well as textual, tabular, and graphical methods for presentation and discussion of such models. The course concludes with a “participants’ choice” session, where we will discuss specific issues and concerns raised by students’ own research projects and agendas.
