# Multiple Regression Analysis in Public Health

Biostatistics in Public Health ,

Biostatistics is the application of statistical reasoning to the life sciences, and it's the key to unlocking the data gathered by researchers and the evidence presented in the scientific public health literature. In this course, you'll extend simple regression to the prediction of a single outcome of interest on the basis of multiple variables. Along the way, you'll be introduced to a variety of methods, and you'll practice interpreting data and performing calculations on real data from published studies. Topics include multiple logistic regression, the Spline approach, confidence intervals, p-values, multiple Cox regression, adjustment, and effect modification.

Sometimes something very small in nature has a huge effect, and it was awesome learning how to articulate and prove that during this course.

teaching biostatistics using by

Incredible way of teaching biostatistics using by just adding more complexity to the same exercises in a gradual form!

fact that almost every

I love the fact that almost every question was from a real article.

concern request correction

I've raised a concern request correction of the issue but no response, and now I've completed the course already.

effort put into

The course was five stars, there were some quiz issues and a few numerical issues, but I learned a lot and appreciate the time and effort put into the content.

gain an understanding

i would be more convinced if they spend more time in explaining how to make the multiple regressions , how many variables i can add and what are the limitations and how to make a measure of fitness Excelente This is a phenomenal course to follow through and gain an understanding of the role data plays in healthcare.

practice questions help

The numerous examples and practice questions help the student apply the concepts learned.
