STAT 34700 Generalized Linear Models


This applied statistics course is a successor of STAT 34300 Applied Linear Statistical Methods and covers the foundations of generalized linear models (GLM). We aim to cover the following topics:

  • GLM model estimation, computation and inference
  • Specific GLM models for binary, multinomial and count data
  • Generalized linear mixed effect models
  • Brief introduction of survival analysis

This course will make a balance between practical real data analysis with examples and a deeper understanding of the models with mathematical derivations.
