Explores a range of statistical techniques for data analysis, from statistical modelling of univariate data to the visualisation of patterns in multivariate data.
An introduction to statistical modelling and multivariate analysis that includes generalised linear models and procedures for analysing patterns in multiple quantitative measurements. The paper combines background theory with practice in applying the methods to real datasets.
