Course Description

In this course you'll take your skills with simple linear regression to the next level. By learning multiple and logistic regression techniques you will gain the skills to model and predict both numeric and categorical outcomes using multiple input variables. You'll also learn how to fit, visualize, and interpret these models. Then you'll apply your skills to learn about Italian restaurants in New York City!

  1. 1

    Parallel Slopes

    Free

    In this chapter you'll learn about the class of linear models called "parallel slopes models." These include one numeric and one categorical explanatory variable.

  2. Multiple Regression

    This chapter will show you how to add two, three, and even more numeric explanatory variables to a linear model.

  3. Case Study: Italian restaurants in NYC

    Explore the relationship between price and the quality of food, service, and decor for Italian restaurants in NYC.

  1. 1

    Parallel Slopes

    Free

    In this chapter you'll learn about the class of linear models called "parallel slopes models." These include one numeric and one categorical explanatory variable.

  2. Evaluating and extending parallel slopes model

    This chapter covers model evaluation. By looking at different properties of the model, including the adjusted R-squared, you'll learn to compare models so that you can select the best one. You'll also learn about interaction terms in linear models.

  3. Multiple Regression

    This chapter will show you how to add two, three, and even more numeric explanatory variables to a linear model.

  4. Logistic Regression

    In this chapter you'll learn about using logistic regression, a generalized linear model (GLM), to predict a binary outcome and classify observations.

  5. Case Study: Italian restaurants in NYC

    Explore the relationship between price and the quality of food, service, and decor for Italian restaurants in NYC.
