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.
