STAT 458
Generalized Linear Models- Theory and Applications Fall 2022
Division III Quantative/Formal Reasoning

Class Details

This course will explore generalized linear models (GLMs)–the extension of linear models, discussed in Stat346, to response variables that have specific non-normal distributions, such as counts and proportions. We will consider the general structure and theory of GLMs and see their use in a range of applications. As time permits, we will also examine extensions of these models for clustered data such as mixed effects models and generalized estimating equations.
