Course Description Methods of inference for correlated outcome variables, with a special emphasis on repeated measurements in medical studies. Linear/nonlinear models with either normal or non-normal error structures. Random effects. Transitional/marginal models. II. Course Prerequisites Theory of statistical inference (estimation and testing, asymptotics) at or above the level of Stat 8101-2. Stat 8111-2 is recommended. Linear models (linear algebra, least square, multivariate normal distribution) (Stat 8311 required). Familiarity with a statistical software package to carry out the computation (including data analysis and simulation). R is highly recommended and will be used throughout by the instructor. Or permission of the Instructor. III.
