Advanced statistical modeling: Introduction to Non-linear analysis

In this webinar we will discuss the foundational concepts behind non-linear modeling, when should these models be applied and how to implement them correctly. We will show how this complex methodology can be applied in a correlated data example. While complete R code is provided for this analysis, the focus of this webinar will be on the statistical methodologies.
