Course Descriptions

HS 510A — Applied Design and Analysis

Focuses on the basics of model building using logistic regression. Weeks not focused on statistics will be focused on design. The statistics portion of the class will touch on variable selection, modeling building, interpreting coefficients, model fit statics, interactions and more. We will use Hosmer and Lemeshow, Applied Logistic Regression as our primary statistical text. Every other week we will review a section of this text book, including completion of 5 problem sets. Students will read applied research studies from the literature as well as methodological articles. The goal will be to develop and apply a framework for study design that focuses on strong causal inference. Usually offered every year.
