STAT3401 Advanced Data Analysis
- 6 points
|Semester 1||UWA (Perth)||Face to face|
- Details for undergraduate courses
- The area of knowledge for this unit is Mathematical and Physical Sciences
- Category A broadening unit for Bachelor of Science students where relevant according to the broadening requirements for each student
- Level 3 elective
- This unit examines the analysis of complex correlated data with a linear mixed model approach. Longitudinal (or repeated measures) data, spatial data, clustered data and data from complex experimental designs are utilised to develop and describe methodology, and describe analyses approaches. The unit focuses on recognising data with these structures and identifying appropriate models to fit. It also addresses how to carry out such analyses using modern statistical techniques and packages, utilising real-world examples from many disciplines such as science (e.g. agricultural, biological, environmental, medical and physical), social sciences and finance.
- Students are able to (1) understand statistical models for complex data; (2) fit models to their data using modern statistical techniques and packages; (3) critically assess fitted models; and (4) interpret and communicate results of analysis of complex correlated data.
- Indicative assessments in this unit are as follows: (1) assignments and (2) final examination. Further information is available in the unit outline.
Supplementary assessment is not available in this unit except in the case of a bachelor's pass degree student who has obtained a mark of 45 to 49 overall and is currently enrolled in this unit, and it is the only remaining unit that the student must pass in order to complete their course.

- The availability of units in Semester 1, 2, etc. was correct at the time of publication but may be subject to change.
- All students are responsible for identifying when they need assistance to improve their academic learning, research, English language and numeracy skills; seeking out the services and resources available to help them; and applying what they learn. Students are encouraged to register for free online support through GETSmart; to help themselves to the extensive range of resources on UWA's STUDYSmarter website; and to participate in WRITESmart and (ma+hs)Smart drop-ins and workshops.
- Books and other material wherever listed may be subject to change. Book lists relating to 'Preliminary reading', 'Recommended reading' and 'Textbooks' are, in most cases, available at the University Co-operative Bookshop (from early January) and appropriate administrative offices for students to consult. Where texts are listed in the unit description above, an asterisk (*) indicates that the book is available in paperback.
