To understand the theoretical basis of generalized linear and generalised mixed models to apply to a diverse range of practical problems. To relate modern statistical models and methods to real life situations and use relevant computer software (STATA) for statistical analysis.


This workshop will assume that participants have a good knowledge of basic regression, any syntax based statistical software, such as STATA (such as can be obtained from the BHI Introduction to Programming course running in October). Participants will need to bring their own laptop computer with STATA installed.


Subject specific: Knowledge, Understanding and Skills

  • At the end of the course the students should be able to demonstrate subject specific knowledge, understanding and skills and have the ability to:
  • Develop an understanding of the underlying assumptions and principals of statistical modelling *Understand the foundation theory of Generalised Linear Models and Generalised Linear Mixed Models
  • Identify appropriate methods of estimation using Bayesian and frequentist approaches
  • Understand different missing data mechanisms and their assumptions
  • Formulate sensible models for a set of data, conduct statistical inference and interpret the results of any analysis.
  • Critique, and adapt, statistical models to cope with atypical error structures and non-independence
  • With limited guidance, deploy established techniques of analysis and enquiry in scientific endeavour

General: Knowledge, Understanding and Skills

  • On successful completion of this module the student should be able to
  • Understand and explain the role of statistical models.
  • Justify and critique the use of statistical methods for real life applications.
  • Show confidence in the use of STATA to implement statistical models for real life application.
