Further Information

  • Contents:  Regression analysis is one of the most used statistical methods for the analysis of empirical problems in econonimc, social and other sciences. A variety of model classes and inference concepts exists, reaching from the classical linear regression to modern non- and semiparamtric regression. The aim of this course is to give an overview of the most important concepts of regression and to give an impression of its flexibility.
    The following main topics will be covered:
        - Linear regression models
        - Random effects models (mixed models)
        - Time series analysis
        - Cointegration
        - Generalized linear models

    Note that - depending on the audience - this course might be taught in English.
