    Statistical Model Building https://dresa.org.au/events/statistical-model-building-a41d5acd-9e17-4478-a400-b3a6954f19c9 This workshop examines and illustrates the key aspects and strategies of statistical model building to help you answer your research question, avoid common pitfalls, erroneous models and incorrect conclusions. Appropriate statistical model building will help you to gain knowledge as opposed to simply getting the best prediction (although that can be a goal as well). We will focus on concepts such as variable selection, multi-collinearity, interactions, selecting a model building strategy, comparing models and evaluating models. In general, these concepts are useful for any statistical model building. This workshop will provide generalised linear regression model examples. The focus will be on practical application of concepts so mathematical descriptions will be kept to a minimum. **Attendance options:** You will get the most out of this session by attending in person. This way allows you to interact with the presenters, ask questions directly, and catch up after the session. Please only choose online if circumstances prevent you from attending campus. **In person @Camperdown:** Choose the "In person" ticket option. **Online:** Choose the "Online Zoom" ticket option.

    Statistical Model Building https://dresa.org.au/events/statistical-model-building-a41d5acd-9e17-4478-a400-b3a6954f19c9 This workshop examines and illustrates the key aspects and strategies of statistical model building to help you answer your research question, avoid common pitfalls, erroneous models and incorrect conclusions. Appropriate statistical model building will help you to gain knowledge as opposed to simply getting the best prediction (although that can be a goal as well). We will focus on concepts such as variable selection, multi-collinearity, interactions, selecting a model building strategy, comparing models and evaluating models. In general, these concepts are useful for any statistical model building. This workshop will provide generalised linear regression model examples. The focus will be on practical application of concepts so mathematical descriptions will be kept to a minimum. **Attendance options:** You will get the most out of this session by attending in person. This way allows you to interact with the presenters, ask questions directly, and catch up after the session. Please only choose online if circumstances prevent you from attending campus. **In person @Camperdown:** Choose the "In person" ticket option. **Online:** Choose the "Online Zoom" ticket option.
