Monthly Seminar: Understanding how to interpret linear regression models

Posted 26 June 2017

Facility: Stats Central

STATS CENTRAL WILL BE HOLDING MONTHLY SEMINARS DISCUSSING STATISTICAL PRINCIPLES THAT ARE RELEVANT TO RESEARCHERS OF ANY DISCIPLINE. THEY WILL BE HELD ON THE SECOND THURSDAY OF THE MONTH FROM 3PM-4PM AND BE FOLLOWED BY AFTERNOON TEA AND AN OPPORTUNITY FOR DISCUSSION.

Description:

 

This informal talk will help you to interpret linear regression models.

  • What do the coefficients in linear models actually mean?
  • Is it different for continuous and categorical predictors?
  • What does it mean to “control for” another variable?
  • How do I interpret coefficients, on one hand, in the presence of other explanatory variables and, on the other hand, in a model on their own?

The talk will be about 30 minutes long and will be followed by (free!) afternoon tea and time for discussion.

Please register by Wednesday 12th July, 12:00 pm, so we can cater properly for afternoon tea!

 

 

Date and time:  Thursday, 13th July 2017 - 3:00 pm to 4:00 pm
