Course introduction

In this module we study how to analyse data that are not normally distributed. We look at fractions (logistic regression), counts (Poisson regression, log-linear models), ordinal data (threshold models), and overdispersion. We discuss (quasi-) maximum likelihood estimation and the deviance. In computer practicals participants can familiarize themselves with models and methods. The main statistical software used in this course is R.
