# STAT412 Generalised Linear Models

The theory and application of generalised linear models. The emphasis will be on application, with a focus on real data analysis using R.

We consider the theory and use of generalised linear models. This paper will include theory, but primarily emphasise application with a focus on parameter interpretation and hypothesis testing in real data analysis using R.

Learning Outcomes
Students who successfully complete the paper will develop an ability to analyse different types of data.
Eligibility
For any student who has completed STAT 341 and STAT 362 and wishes to know more about this important framework for analysing many types of data. A working knowledge of these models is extremely valuable for any practising statistician.
