The course will cover: Introduction to linear regression models; use of segmented regression to evaluate interventions; issues arising when using regression in time series (autocorrelation, heteroskedasticity, seasonality).  The one-day course combines theory with case studies and examples. 

The two-day course extends this with an additional day of computer practical classes.  Attendees of the two-day course should bring a laptop with the open-source software R (freely available from https://www.r-project.org/) for the second day.

Day 1 overview:

  • How interventions are evaluated with segmented linear regression
  • Special issues in time series data

 

Day 2

  • Introduction to statistical computing in R
