Module overview

This module will introduce and develop flexible statistical modelling methods that allow for general and complex forms of data to be modelled, extending ideas already encountered in earlier modules on linear and/or generalised linear modelling. The two main foci of the syllabus will be methods for modelling grouped data using random effects, and non-parametric “smoothing” methods for modelling data with complex functional form.
