Linear and logistic regression models can be created using R, the open-source statistical computing software. In this course, biotech expert and epidemiologist Monika Wahi uses the publicly available Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance Survey (BRFSS) dataset to show you how to perform a forward stepwise modeling process. Monika shows you how to design your research by considering scientific plausibility selecting a hypothesis. Then, she takes you through the steps of preparing, developing, and finalizing both a linear regression model and a logistic regression model. She also shares techniques for how to interpret diagnostic plots, improve model fit, compare models, and more.
