The statistical program R will be introduced and used throughout the course. The topics include developing multiple regression models, testing hypotheses for these models, selecting the 'best' model, diagnosing problems in model fit, shrinkage methods, developing generalised linear models, and a range of applications of generalised linear models including logistic, Poisson and log-linear models. Analysis of different statistical models are practised using the statistical software package through the R and RStudio.
