Bayesian Statistics


This is course 4 of 5 in the Statistics with R Specialization. From Coursera: “This course describes Bayesian statistics, in which one’s inferences about parameters or hypotheses are updated as evidence accumulates. You will learn to use Bayes’ rule to transform prior probabilities into posterior probabilities, and be introduced to the underlying theory and perspective of the Bayesian paradigm. The course will apply Bayesian methods to several practical problems, to show … Continue Reading

Linear Regression and Modeling


This is course 3 of 5 in the Statistics with R Specialization. From Coursera: “This course introduces simple and multiple linear regression models. These models allow you to assess the relationship between variables in a data set and a continuous response variable. Is there a relationship between the physical attractiveness of a professor and their student evaluation scores? Can we predict the test score for a child based on certain characteristics … Continue Reading
