Chapter
Part of the Statistics for Biology and Health book series (SBH, volume 0)

Abstract

In this chapter, we discuss one of the two building blocks of regression models, namely models including only a single categorical covariate. This means that we compare groups, such as treatments, countries, stature groups based on body mass index, diet types, age groups, and so on.
