Statistical Models with R


In this two-day course you will learn how to develop a wide variety of basic and advanced statistical models with R. The course will follow a step-by-step approach from simple linear modelling to more complex generalized linear model including advanced extensions. Plenty of examples will lead you to a practical understanding of applied statistical modelling with R.


Anyone who is already using R and wants to get an overview of statistical models with R. Some background in theoretical statistics and probability is required.



6 attendees max.


Course organization

The first part of the course is focused on Linear Models: starting from t tests and Anova, we cover a wide variety of Regression Models, as Simple and Multiple Linear Regression and Polynomial Regression, included special cases, as models where intercept or slope vary according to a categorical variable.

The second part of the course covers the extension to Generalized Linear Models, as modeling binary variables with logistic models, counting variables with Poisson models and modeling with Gamma variables. Depending on attendees expertise and available time, a last section where extra modeling expansions, as Tree models, quasi-Poisson variables, Negative Binomial variables and other modeling extensions might be briefly shown.
