Part two of a one-year, two-semester course sequence in Statistics (NUTR 0207 or equivalent). This course is intended for students whose main focus is non-experimental or survey-based research. The course covers non-experimental research design, simple linear regression, multiple regression, analysis of variance, non-linear functional forms, heteroskedasticity, complex survey designs, and real-world statistical applications in nutrition science and policy. Students will make extensive use of Stata for Windows. NOTE: Students cannot receive semester hour units for both NUTR 307 and NUTR 309: Statistical Methods for Nutrition Research II.
Primary Course Delivery: Asynchronous and Synchronous
Notes from Instructor: Course will include both asynchronous and synchronous components. Synchronous class time on Mondays/Wednesday and there will be synchronous office hours, including one weekly late afternoon time (for students in the Americas) and one weekly early morning eastern time (for students in Europe, Africa, or Asia). During approximately 4 of the synchronous class times during the semester, if safe and possible, there will be an in-classroom component at the Jaharis Center on the Boston campus (conditions permitting), as well as online.
