Video description
Develop linear and nonlinear regression skills and gain the confidence to work with quantitative analysis
About This Video
 Understand the statistical fundamentals of ordinary least squares (OLS)
 Gain the confidence to comfortably interpret complicated regression output from OLS
 Explore regression modeling and its application
In Detail
Working with statistics and quantitative reports requires a good understanding of statistics fundamentals and techniques. However, learning and applying new statistical techniques can often be a daunting experience. This is where this course comes into play.
To make your experience with statistics a pleasant one, this course gives you comprehensive knowledge of basic principles of the statistical methodology, focusing on linear regression and nonlinear regression.
The course starts with an introduction to easy statistics and gives you an overview of the course objectives. Next, you will explore the types of regression analysis that exist and find out how ordinary least squares (OLS) works. To gain a deeper understanding of linear regression and OLS, you will learn to interpret and analyze complicated regression output from OLS. You will also focus on Gauss–Markov assumptions and zero conditional mean. Moving ahead, you will cover nonlinear regression, exploring how it works, what the different nonlinear regression models are, and the major uses. Towards the end, you will learn to work around with regression modeling with the help of practical examples.
By the end of this video, you will be wellversed with linear and nonlinear regression and the basic principles of the statistical methodology.
Who this book is for
If you’re a student, an experienced professional, a manager, or a government worker who wants to learn linear and nonlinear regression, regression modeling, and ordinary least squares, then this course is for you. This is a beginnerlevel course and does not require any prior knowledge of mathematics or statistics.
