STAT319
Generalised Linear and Multivariate Models
Description
STAT319 is a course in Generalised Linear Models (GLM), suited to anyone with an interest in analysing data. In this course we introduce the components of GLM and other advanced data analysis techniques. We use the free-ware package R. R is becoming the preferred computer package for many statisticians. In this course we will show you how to use the package, enter, manipulate and analyse data in R.
