Statistical Methods in Epidemiology
SPH BS 852
This course covers study design and intermediate-level data analysis techniques for handling confounding in epidemiologic studies. Confounding is carefully defined and distinguished from interaction. Course content covers stratification and multivariable techniques for controlling confounding in both matched and independent sample study designs, including analysis of covariance, logistic regression, and proportional hazards models. Model fit and prediction are discussed. Students are required to apply these methods with the aid of computerized statistical packages. BS805 and BS852 cannot be taken in the same semester without approval from both faculty. Students should speak to faculty of both courses before registering.
