Categorical Data Analysis and Generalised Linear Models
This course presents methods for analyses of categorical data, with a key focus on generalised linear models (GLMs). Students will study contingency tables, and gain experience with a range of generalised linear models appropriate to binary, count, nominal, ordinal and time-to-event response variables. There will be an emphasis on understanding the theoretical basis for the models, gaining practical experience with model fitting, checking model assumptions and communicating results to non-statistical colleagues.
