Intermediate Biostatistics: Regression Methods

Course Details

Course Number
NUTR 323
Associated Faculty

Course Description

This course provides a survey of regression techniques for outcomes common in biomedical and public health studies including continuous, count, and binary data. Emphasis is on developing a conceptual understanding of the application of regression techniques to solving problems, rather than on numerical details. The first half of the course focuses on modifications to linear regression models when various assumptions do not hold. The second half of the course explores more advanced topics including logistic regression, Poisson regression, and complex survey weighting. Students will have opportunities to experience the whole life cycle of a statistical manuscript--using real world data given by the instructor as well as data of their own--from cleaning the data, writing the analysis plan, constructing the model, to presenting the work in forms of written report and oral presentation.
 
IMPORTANT TO NOTE: NUTR 0323 is cross-listed with PH 0206 only in the Fall semester so Friedman students may enroll via SIS (8 seats available). However, this course is not cross-listed in the Spring semester so Friedman students need to pursue enrollment in PH 0206 (Intermediate Statistics at Tufts Public Health) via the cross-registration process.
