ANL302e Selected Topics in Regression introduces students to the concepts and applications of regression. Its coverage includes selected topics in statistics, followed by advanced topics in multiple linear regression, panel data models, statistical forecasting models, and qualitative and limited dependent variable models. The course also includes analysing problems encountered in regression analysis where the standard assumptions are violated and look into methods to rectify these violations. The course aims to provide managers with the skills to perform regression analysis in the various business areas, such as estimation of demand, production and cost and business forecasting.

Level: 3
