PH 141 Regression & Other Approaches

The epidemiological portion examines methods used to evaluate the role of chance, bias, and confounding in epidemiological studies. Topics include sources and definitions of bias and confounding, analytic techniques, e.g., stratified analyses, Mantel-Hanszel techniques, uses of logistic regression analysis in cohort and case control studies, and introduction to life table analysis using both Kaplan-Meir and regression techniques. Other topics include planning data management and analysis in epidemiological studies and estimating sample size. Lectures are illustrated by reference to epidemiological data.

               The biostatistical portion of the course continues the examination of topics raised in the Summer and Fall terms (See PH 139 and 140).
