Module overview

This module aims to expand your statistical toolbox by exposing you to a broad set of modelling techniques to employ with data that would not satisfy the assumptions of the mainstream Linear and Generalized Linear models. The first half of the module will follow an explanatory approach, introducing Multilevel (Mixed effects) and Marginal models to understand and deal with the type of correlation found in hierarchical and longitudinal data. The second half of the module will introduce a set of modelling techniques widely used in the predictive approach, such as non-parametric regression, Generalized Additive Models (GAM), Penalized Regression or Classification and Regression Trees (CART).
