Aims of the course: |
Regression analysis is a very important tool used for studying relationships between variables. The course provides an insight into the concept of linear regression models. Properties of ordinary least square estimates of the parameters of these models are provided. A brief discussion of other techniques which are relevant to regression analysis (such as non-parametric regression, robust regression, bootstrapping etc.) is also included. The course also provides a guide how to apply the methods to real data. |
Learning outcomes and competences: |
Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to understand linear regression models, their properties and limitations. They will understand the concept of linear regression models in a wider context. Students will be able to apply the methods to real data. |
Course contents: |
* Regression model, linear regression model |
