Most analysts’ primary focus is to check the distributional assumptions with regards to residuals. They must be independent and identically distributed (i.i.d.) with a mean of zero and constant variance.
Residuals can also give us insight into the quality of our models.
In this webinar, we’ll review and compare what residuals are in linear regression, ANOVA, and generalized linear models. Jeff will cover:
- Which residuals — standardized, studentized, Pearson, deviance, etc. — we use and why
- How to determine if distributional assumptions have been met
- How to use graphs to discover issues like non-linearity, omitted variables, and heteroskedasticity
Knowing how to piece this information together will improve your statistical modeling skills.
Note: This webinar is an exclusive benefit for members of the Statistically Speaking Membership Program.
