Zero-inflated Models & GLMM using R

  • 29 November - 03 December 2021
  • Wageningen University
  • Methodology
  • 2.5 ECTS

What is zero inflation? Suppose you want to study hippos and the effect of habitat variables on their distribution. When sampling, you may count zero hippos at many sites and therefore zero-inflated models should be used. During this course several case studies are presented, in which the statistical theory is integrated with applied analyses in a clear and understandable manner. Zero-inflated models consist of two integrated GLMs and therefore we will start with a revision of GLM. GLMMs and zero-inflated GLMMs are discussed in the second part of the course. This is a non-technical course.
