Advanced Biostatistics – Multivariate analyses (1 Credit Hour)
COURSE DATE: 16 JANUARY 2024
Inferences made about association and causation primarily depends up on application of epidemiological data to rigorous statistical analyses of data on putative factors that are linked with the outcome variable. This module builds up on the application of concepts of biostatistics and interpret the associations of an outcome variable with several independent variables to assess the strength and direction of association models.
