In this online course, students will learn how to apply Markov Chain Monte Carlo techniques (MCMC) to Bayesian statistical modeling using WinBUGS and R software.

Topics covered include Gibbs sampling and the Metropolis-Hastings method. Participants will also learn how to implement linear regression (normal and t errors), poisson and loglinear regression, and binary/binomial regression using WinBUGS.

Course Program:

  • Week 1: Using Markov Chain Monte Carlo
