インペリアル・カレッジ・ロンドン(Imperial College London) による Linear Regression in R for Public Health の受講者のレビューおよびフィードバック



Welcome to Linear Regression in R for Public Health! Public Health has been defined as “the art and science of preventing disease, prolonging life and promoting health through the organized efforts of society”. Knowing what causes disease and what makes it worse are clearly vital parts of this. This requires the development of statistical models that describe how patient and environmental factors affect our chances of getting ill. This course will show you how to create such models from scratch, beginning with introducing you to the concept of correlation and linear regression before walking you through importing and examining your data, and then showing you how to fit models. Using the example of respiratory disease, these models will describe how patient and other factors affect outcomes such as lung function. Linear regression is one of a family of regression models, and the other courses in this series will cover two further members. Regression models have many things in common with each other, though the mathematical details differ. This course will show you how to prepare the data, assess how well the model fits the data, and test its underlying assumptions – vital tasks with any type of regression. You will use the free and versatile software package R, used by statisticians and data scientists in academia, governments and industry worldwide....




This is an excellent course to learn how to think statistically with respect to linear regression. The course covers a lot of materials and equips one to further explore this vast area.



This was a wonderful course, for many reasons, the best of which was I felt as if I was finally getting into a real-world data analysis situation. I recommend it highly.

Great course that takes you step by step on how to create model selection in R which you can be apply into the real world.

by Rebecca E


Excellent online course with plenty of learning to now take away and apply to other datasets to enhance this learning.

by Dawn D


Thorough explanation of linear regression, building on the basics right up to model building. Highly recommend! :)

by Kelly B


The course was really well put together and fitted really nicely taught in the first course in the specialisation.

by Mohd. A H


I learned a lot from the course even if a lot of areas felt unpolished and glossed over. Definitely recommend it.

by Enhui Y


Superb - learnt how to model linear regression and multivariate regression in R. The summaries were excellent.

by Rachel Z


Excellent course and professor. I recommend it to anyone who are interested in R for public health research

by Elisabeth P


This was a great course. The best part: hands-on experience with real-world dataset. I recommend it highly.

by Ismael C


Great Course. For a person wanting to learn coding from scratch it is very friendly and easy to understand.

by Linh V M


I love this course. I can understand clearly how linear regression work and apply this in real situation

by Umesh S


Nice introduction to linear regression with Statistics point of view and good introductory course for R

by Don E


Great Refresher or first course. Videos were the right length. The difficulty the right level.

by Jose L V V


good explanations about the utilities of simple and multiple linear regression in public health!!!

by Pau G


Good course to get familyar with linear regression from the very begining , Very useful lectures

by Sunny M


The course offered a systematic and efficient way to learn linear regression in R.

by Mr. M N


Too much informative course thanks coursera for such an amazing opportunity

by Marcos d S M


G​reat course. Thank you Prof. Alex Bottle and Prof. Victoria Cornelius!

by Vivekananda D


Perhaps, the best linear regression course available online! Great job!

by Shubham J S


This course is very helpful in learning and development of new skills

by Simon V


Very good for understanding how to use R and manage your data better

by Ioannis K


Excellent in every way, this is how statistics should be taught!

by yi j


Very practical and explicit course about linear regression.

by Rahim H


Amazing course, it has been great revision for me with OLS
