LINEAR MODELING IN R > MISSION 456
Estimating the Coefficients and Fitting Linear Models
In this lesson of our Linear Modeling in R course, you'll begin to dig deeper into linear modeling with R. You'll use R's
lm() function and the least squares criterion to fit a linear model to the data.
As you fit the model, though, you'll also be learning about how to effectively interpret your results. You'll make use of familiar statistics concepts like confidence intervals and standard error as you assess the accuracy of the coefficients.
You'll also learn to fit a trendline to a scatterplot in ggplot2 both manually and by using an
Of course, as you work with the model, you'll also be reviewing programming and statistics concepts from earlier in our Data Analyst in R path.
