Skills and learning outcomes

Description of contents: programme

1. Generalized Linear Models (GLM)
1.1. Regression models for categorical dependent and independent variables
1.2. Other models for other types of qualitative dependent variables: binary, ordered, multinomial, counting, etc.
2. Generalized Linear Mixed Models (GLMM)
3. Real Life Examples

Learning activities and methodology

Training Activities:
- Theoretical-practical classes
Teaching Methods:
- Presentations in the professor's lecture room with computer and audiovisual support, in which the main concepts of the subject are developed and a bibliography is provided to complement the students' learning.
- Resolution of practical cases, problems, etc. raised by the professor, either individually or in a group.
