Module overview

The module Statistical Modelling II covers in detail the theory of linear regression models, where explanatory variables are used to explain the variation in a response variable, which is assumed to be normally distributed. However, in many practical situations the data are not appropriate for such analysis. For example, the response variable may be binary, and interest may be focused on assessing the dependence of the probability of 'success' on potential explanatory variables. Such techniques are important in many disciplines such as finance, market research and medicine.

Alternatively, a variety of biological and social science data are in the form of cross-classified tables of counts, called contingency tables. The structure of such tables can be examined to determine the pattern of interdependence of the cross-classifying variables.
