PH 212 Biostatistics

This course enables students to answer statistical questions surrounding hypothesis testing. What are samples? What can a sample tell us about the whole group (the population)? How do we decide whether two samples come from different populations and what is signal versus noise? When we make these decisions, what is the chance we are wrong? Students will calculate and interpret binomial probabilities and hypothesis tests, including the chi-squared test, two-sample test of proportion, z-test, t-test, and ANOVA.  Applications will include epidemiology related to determinants of health and quality improvement in healthcare.
