Topics include likelihood-based estimation and testing, model-fitting, residual analyses, over-dispersed models, quasi-likelihood, large sample properties, and the use of computer packages. Also, methods for longitudinal repeated measures data that will include inference for continuous and discrete data. Inferential objectives include prediction of response and estimation of correlation/covariance structures. Nonparametric and semiparametric methods covered as time permits.
