September 2018 Member Webinar: Generalized Linear Models

by Karen Grace-Martin

In this webinar, we will provide an overview of generalized linear models. You may already be using them (perhaps without knowing it!). For example, logistic regression is a type of generalized linear model that many people are already familiar with. Alternatively, maybe you’re not using them yet and you are just beginning to understand when they might be useful to you.

Generalized linear models are designed to work with outcomes that aren’t normally distributed, but have other recognizable characteristics, such as being counts, proportions, or belonging to categories. They are often exactly what you need when you just can’t get a normal distribution to fit.

Whatever your current exposure, this webinar will cover basic explanations and uses of generalized linear models, and will provide several examples using different data sets to help solidify your understanding.


Note: This webinar is only accessible to members of the Statistically Speaking Membership Program.
