Transformations
In many cases we do not analyze the original data.
If Y and X are the observed variables we may t the model
gy (Y ) = 0 + 1gx(X ) +
The functions gy and gx are transformations applied to the
original data.
We will look at what transfo

Categorical Predictor Variables
We often wish to use categorical (or qualitative) variables as
covariates in a regression model.
For binary variables (taking on only 2 values, e.g. sex), it is
relatively easy to include them in the model.
Usually one l

Diagnostics
All statistical modeling is based on some assumptions.
It is important to check those assumptions before making
any conclusions.
This is the process of model checking and is based on diagnostics.
Diagnostics may be graphical or numerical.

Multiple Linear Regression
Simple linear regression tries to t a simple line between two
variables Y and X .
If X is linearly related to Y this explains some of the variability
in Y .
In most cases, there is still a lot of variability about the line
re

Simple Linear Regression
In simple linear regression we are concerned about the relationship between two variables, X and Y .
There are two components to such a relationship.
1. The strength of the relationship.
2. The direction of the relationship.

Variable Selection
A very common problem in regression is to decide on a set
of covariates to be included in the model.
We will generally collect observations on a relatively large
