Module summaryLinear regression is a tremendously useful statistical technique but is very limited. Generalised linear models extend linear regression in many ways - allowing us to analyse more complex data sets. In this module we will see how to combine continuous and categorical predictors, analyse binomial response data and model count data.
ObjectivesOn completion of this module, students should be able to:
a) carry out regression analysis with generalised linear models including the use of link functions;
b) understand the use of deviance in model selection;
c) appreciate the problems caused by overdispersion;
d) fit and interpret the special cases of log linear models and logistic regression;
e) use a statistical package with real data to fit these models to data and to write a report giving and interpreting the results.
Generalised linear model; probit model; logistic regression; log linear models.
