Join Michele Vallisneri for an in-depth discussion in this video ✓ Challenge: Explaining baby weight at birth, part of Python Statistics Essential Training.
(gentle music)…- [Instructor] For this challenge,…we're going to pull together all that we learned…about fitting models with stats models.…I'd like you to find a model that fits the gap minder 1985…babies per woman data better than our best model so far,…region plus survival at age five,…as judged, using our cross validation criteria.…So the cross validation that you need to beat…is a little more than one.…
I have collected all that you need in this notebook.…A hint, think about adding, not just explanatory variables,…but functions of explanatory variables.…The easiest way to do so…may be to add a new column to the data.…Good luck.…
