Researchers are obliged to publish their findings so as to advance knowledge on their research topics and to ameliorate their chances of
attracting more funding to their research activities. The ability to conduct proper statistical analysis of research data is crucial for publication of such data. Within epidemiological research, there is often a need to employ multi-variable statistical methods to explore possible confounding and effect modification. This course seeks to provide participants with the practical ability to conduct such analyses.
The course seeks to provide participants with the basic knowledge and practical ability to select proper statistical tests for given situations, to conduct the analyses and in particular to interpret and present the results. Basic statistical tests will be briefly presented but emphasis will be on multi-variable tests i.e. analysis of variance, multiple linear regression and logistic regression.
Participants’ Selection Criteria:
• PhD registered students who are at an advanced level of their research work, OR
• MSc registered students who have finalized data collection and are in the process of data analysis, OR
• Any other researcher with interest in data handling.
