Abstract

As outlined in Chapter 1 and illustrated in Chapter 2, statistical modelling involves three steps:
  1. (i)

    specifying models;

     
  2. (ii)

    estimating parameters;

     
  3. (iii)

    making inferences, that is finding confidence intervals, assessing the goodness of fit of models and testing hypotheses.
