Learning and applying new statistical techniques can often be a daunting experience.
“Easy Statistics” is designed to provide you with a compact, and easy to understand, course that focuses on the basic principles of statistical methodology.
This course will focus on the concept of regression modelling.
Understanding how regression analysis works is only half the battle.
There are many pitfalls to avoid and tricks to learn when modelling data in a regression setting. Often, it takes years of experience to accumulate these. In these videos, I will outline some of the most common modelling issues. What is the theory behind them, what do they do and how can we deal with them?
Each topic has a practical demonstration in Stata and includes relevant Stata code. However, Stata is not required to follow this course.
