The application of statistical methods for categorical data is ubiquitous in the modern world, especially in social sciences, biomedical research, and economics and business. However, many traditional statistical tools (like linear regression models) are not designed to handle observations classified into categories and thus inappropriate for analyzing such data. In this course, students will learn important theories and statistical methods specifically designed for visualizing and modeling categorical and ordinal data, while undertaking meaningful analyses and interpretations of complex real-world data that focus on common good issues of their choices. This course is ideal for students who seek to not only develop new statistical capacities but also apply their analytic skills to work for the greater good.
Requisite: STAT 230 and STAT 360, or equivalent experience by consent of the instructor. Spring semester. Professor Liao
