Advanced Statistical Models in Political Analysis using R (MA)
28. September 2017
This course serves as an introduction to a multitude of probability models that are appropriate when the linear model is inadequate. In the first half we will focus on the statistical theory of maximum likelihood. The second half of the course discusses models that are particular relevant for comparative research, where the independence assumption of generalized linear models is often unmet. Throughout the seminar will also devote considerable time to statistical programming using R.
