  • Description

About this Course

About the Course

In this course, Dr Andrew Bell (King’s College London) explores regression analysis. In the first lecture, we think about the role of correlation and regression in statistics. In the second lecture, we think about what correlation can tell us about relationships within a dataset and the involvement of Pearson’s r. Next, we think about simple linear regression and what it can tell us about relationships within a dataset, beyond purely correlational insights. In the fourth and final lecture, we look at the powerful outputs enabled by multiple regression. Photo by m. on Unsplash
