Course Description

Imagine being able to handle data where the response variable is either binary, count, or approximately normal, all under one single framework. Well, you don't have to imagine. Enter the Generalized Linear Models in Python course! In this course you will extend your regression toolbox with the logistic and Poisson models, by learning how to fit, understand, assess model performance and finally use the model to make predictions on new data. You will practice using data from real world studies such the largest population poisoning in world's history, nesting of horseshoe crabs and counting the bike crossings on the bridges in New York City.
