About this Course
Linear models, as their name implies, relate an outcome to a set of predictors of interest using linear assumptions. Regression models, a subset of linear models, are the most important statistical analysis tool in a data scientist’s toolkit.
This course, Must Know Regression Models Skills covers regression analysis, least squares, and inference using regression models. Special cases of the regression model, ANOVA, and ANCOVA will be covered as well. Analysis of residuals and variability will be investigated.
What You Will Learn
