Linear Regression 2 A Practical Guide

The second session on regression will look at using regression models in practice and address some of the common issues that arise. The use of dummy variables to allow the inclusion of categorical independent variables will be covered and students will be made aware of the existence of alternative modelling techniques for use with categorical dependent variables. The remainder of the session covers regression diagnostics and addressing issues that these raise. Recommended reading: Miles, J. and Shevlin, M.
