RIMI Brown Bag Seminar Series on Statistical Applications

What if the variable you are about to model assumes only a handful of different values? Can you say it is a continuous variable and use a linear regression model?  The answer is enthusiastically, “No!” The talk will explain why it is so and introduce you to appropriate regression approaches. SAS and SPSS statistical software packages will be employed. Basic knowledge of linear regression modeling will be required.  There will be time for questions and discussion after the presentation.
