Review linear models and learn how GLMs are an extension of the linear model given different types of response variables. You will also learn the building blocks of GLMs and the technical process of fitting a GLM in Python.
This chapter focuses on logistic regression. You'll learn about the structure of binary data, the logit link function, model fitting, as well as how to interpret model coefficients, model inference, and how to assess model performance.
Here you'll learn about Poisson regression, including the discussion on count data, Poisson distribution and the interpretation of the model fit. You'll also learn how to overcome problems with overdispersion. Finally, you'll get hands-on experience with the process of model visualization.
In this final chapter you'll learn how to increase the complexity of your model by adding more than one explanatory variable. You'll practice with the problem of multicollinearity, and with treating categorical and interaction terms in your model.
