Key info
Offered byHarvard University
Description

This course, part of our Professional Certificate Program in Data Science, covers how to implement linear regression and adjust for confounding in practice using R.
We will also examine confounding, where extraneous variables affect the relationship between two or more other variables, leading to spurious associations. Linear regression is a powerful technique for removing confounders, but it is not a magical process. It is essential to understand when it is appropriate to use, and this course will teach you when to apply this technique.
