Workshop Lectures on Regression

These intensive lectures provide an opportunity for a participant to refresh their understanding of, and familiarity with, the concepts and assumptions of bivariate and multiple ordinary least squares (OLS) linear regression. The ultimate goal is to possess a sufficient level of understanding of these topics so that a participant can adequately comprehend and successfully apply them in subsequent GSERM coursework. In addition to the lectures, problems and solutions will be provided to enhance the learning process and provide for self-evaluation. It is assumed that the participants are proficient in rudimentary statistics (e.g., basic hypothesis testing); while it would be helpful to have been (at least) exposed to OLS regression, this is not a prerequisite. This series of workshop lectures carries no formal academic credit.
