STAT 971: Advanced Statistical Modeling
Prereqs: STAT 802, STAT 882, STAT 883, STAT 970 and take Statistics MS Comprehensive Exam prior to start of STAT 971.
Statistical modeling beyond the “general linear model” normally-distributed data, fixed-effects-only case. Focus on, but not limited to, the theory and practice of generalized and mixed linear models. Issues include translation of study design to plausible models, inference space, data and model scale, conditional vs. marginal models, correlated data, zero-inflated data, likelihood-based estimation and inference.
