The aim of this unit is to provide students with the opportunity to develop advanced working knowledge in statistical modelling and statistical programming. Students will learn how to apply advanced statistical theories such as generalised additive modelling to model real-world data problems. They will also learn about advanced statistical programming using the R language, to perform simulation, model development, model checking, and result interpretation.
Upon successful completion of this unit, students will be able to apply the right statistical models, including generalised linear models and generalised additive models, to solve problems of real-world complexity. They will know how to use R to transform untidy data to tidy data, to perform exploratory data analysis, to develop and check models, and to communicate the analysis results.
To be eligible to obtain a pass in this unit, students must meet certain milestones as part of the portfolio.
