You will learn how to use R to build statistical models and use them to analyze data.
Multiple regression is covered first followed by logistic regression. The generalized linear model is then introduced and shown to include multiple regression and logistic regression as special cases. The Poisson model for count data will be introduced and the concept of overdispersion described. You will then learn how to analyse longitudinal data, first using relatively straightforward graphics and simple inferential approaches. This will be followed by describing mixed-effects models and the generalized estimating approach for such data. The emphasis in the course is how to use R to fit the models listed and how to interpret the R output, rather than the theoretical background of the models.
