## Module aims

This module introduces various models and methods for multivariate data analysis as well as data-driven nonparametric models and methods.

## Module learning outcomes

By the end of the module, students should be able to:

1. Work with different models for multivariate data and nonparametric models.

2. Apply the main techniques of multivariate data analysis and nonparametric estimation methods, and pick appropriate techniques to apply to different types of data.

3. Use the statistical package R to analyse multivariate data

4. Carry out self-directed analysis of more complex problems requiring more advanced techniques or analysis methods (for M-level students)

## Module content

This module can be split into two parts. Part (i) covers seven classic topics in multivariate data analysis to be taught in the first seven weeks; and part (ii) introduces some commonly-used nonparametric models and methods including the kernel and local polynomial estimations to be taught in the last three weeks.

The information on this page is indicative of the module that is currently on offer. The University constantly explores ways to enhance and improve its degree programmes and therefore reserves the right to make variations to the content and method of delivery of modules, and to discontinue modules, if such action is reasonably considered to be necessary. In some instances it may be appropriate for the University to notify and consult with affected students about module changes in accordance with the University's policy on the Approval of Modifications to Existing Taught Programmes of Study.
