140.649.01 ESSENTIALS OF PROBABILITY AND STATISTICAL INFERENCE IV
Builds on the concepts discussed in 140.646, 140.647, 140.648 to provide the theory for modern statistical methods such as linear models, generalized linear models, random effects models, and marginal regression models. Also discusses the theory of causal inference. De-emphasizes proofs and replaces them with extended discussion of interpretation of results and simulation for illustration.
Upon successfully completing this course, students will be able to:
