Browsing or Printing?
The notes are offered in two formats: HTML and PDF, see the discussion below for more details.
I expect most of you will want to print the notes, in which case you can use the links below to access the PDF file for each chapter:
If you are browsing you can use the table of contents on the right to go directly to a specific chapter or section.
No, there is no Chapter 1 ... yet. One day I will write an introduction to the course and that will be Chapter 1.
* The list above has two extensions to the original notes: an addendum on Modeling Over-Dispersed Count Data, which describes models with extra-Poisson variation and negative binomial regression, and a brief discussion of models for longitudinal and clustered data.

The Choice of Formats
It turns out that making the lecture notes available on the web was a bit of a challenge because web browsers were designed to render text and graphs but not equations, which are often shown using bulky graphs or translated into text with less than ideal results.
The notes were written using LaTeX, which produces postscript or PDF, so the simplest solution was to post the generated PDF files, one per chapter. This format is best for printing the notes. Our PDF files are now smaller and look better on the screen that before. To view the files you will need Adobe Reader, unless you use a browser like Chrome that can render PDF natively.
