This course introduces students to the most important methods for analyzing categorical data. The focus of the course is twofold: classical methods in categorical data analysis, such as chi-squared tests, and logistic and loglinear (Poisson) regression techniques.

  1. Introduction and review: likelihood methods and R 
  2. Analysis with binary variables 
  3. Analysis with multicategory variables 
  4. Analysis with count response 
  5. Model selection and evaluation 
  6. Further topics

Graduate Studies Notes:

Important dates and deadlines for graduate students are found here: http://www.sfu.ca/dean-gradstudies/current/important_dates/guidelines.html. The deadline to drop a course with a 100% refund is the end of week 2. The deadline to drop with no notation on your transcript is the end of week 3.

Registrar Notes:

SFU’s Academic Integrity web site http://students.sfu.ca/academicintegrity.html is filled with information on what is meant by academic dishonesty, where you can find resources to help with your studies and the consequences of cheating.  Check out the site for more information and videos that help explain the issues in plain English.

Each student is responsible for his or her conduct as it affects the University community.  Academic dishonesty, in whatever form, is ultimately destructive of the values of the University. Furthermore, it is unfair and discouraging to the majority of students who pursue their studies honestly. Scholarly integrity is required of all members of the University. http://www.sfu.ca/policies/gazette/student/s10-01.html
