The course focuses on quantitative biostatistical concepts. Statistics include descriptive summary statistics (mean, median, and SD); techniques for testing hypotheses (z- and t-tests, chi-square tests, non-parametric methods, ANOVA, sampling and bivariate correlation and simple linear regression (survival analysis) and then moves on to a presentation of multiple regression techniques and the analysis of variance under the general linear model. It will focus on designs involving a quantitative dependent variable and independent variables of either a quantitative or categorical nature. Choice of technique and interpretation of results will be stressed more than mathematical development of the methods. The course includes a weekly laboratory session on computer data analysis using the SPSS for Windows statistical package. Graded ABCDE/Y.
