DATS301 Analytical Methods II (3 semester hours)

Whereas Analytical Methods I primarily deals with continuous data, this course deals with methods and tools used to analyze categorical (discrete) data. For example, researchers analyze categorical data, e.g. using logistic regression, to determine the results of tests such as learning if a patient’s tumor cancerous or not, or whether a consumer will purchase a particular product or not. Specific attention will be paid to surveys and survey data. In addition, this course introduces generalized linear modeling. (Prerequisite: DATS211)
