Advanced Methods for Analyzing Discrete Survey Answers

This course focuses on estimating models with discrete dependent variables, presenting a rigorous academic exploration of statistical methods and their application to real-world datasets. Through an examination of maximum likelihood estimation and various models, including linear regression, binary models (logit and probit), multinomial models, and count data analysis, students will gain a comprehensive understanding of the complexities inherent in analyzing discrete outcomes. Hands-on exercises using R software will provide practical experience in model implementation and interpretation, enabling students to conduct sophisticated data analysis with precision and confidence.
