Description

Faculty: Prof. Stanley Lemeshow, PhD


This course provides theoretical and practical training for biostatisticians, epidemiologists and professionals of related disciplines in statistical modeling with particular emphasis on logistic regression. The increasingly popular logistic regression model has become the standard method for regression analysis of binary, multinomial and ordinal response data in the health sciences.

Objectives

Participants will learn to understand the logistic regression and be able to apply it to real data sets. Upon completion of the course, students will be able to:

  1. Understand the theoretical underpinnings of the logistic regression model
  2. Understand the interpretation of the coefficients in the model
  3. Understand the similarities and differences between logistic regression and classical contingency table analysis
  4. Learn how to use the model to control for confounding and interpret effect modification
  5. Learn how to assess model performance
  6. Learn to model response variables that have more than two outcome levels

Participant profile

Epidemiologists, biostatisticians, researchers in clinical medicine, researchers in the social sciences.
