Course Description & Objectives
Description & Objectives:
This course is designed to provide a comprehensive exposition on the scope and applicability of regression modelling techniques in solving real-life problems. In doing so, the aim will be to inculcate a sound understanding of both the underlying theoretical aspects of modelling as well as various issues that are encountered in applying the models in real-life scenarios. Real datasets and cases from diverse areas (like business administration, economics, engineering and social, biological and ecological sciences) will be analysed which will help the participants in reinforcing their methodological and conceptual understanding. It is expected that by the end of the course, the participants will gain a thorough understanding of various aspects of regression models and their applicability in analyzing datasets they may encounter during their FPM coursework/programme and beyond. Since all applications will be carried out in the R programming language, this course can also aid the participants in learning this important statistical programming language at some length.
