WASP - Simple Logistic Regression

28th April 2016, 09:30 to 29th April 2016, 16:00, D026, Ebsworth Building, Durham University, Queen's Campus, Stockton-on-Tees

Logistic regression is a commonly used technique for analysing binary outcomes. This course is designed for researchers who are interested in the prevalence of an event and how it may vary by explanatory factors, such as gender, age or educational categories. The course will discuss basic analysis of frequency tables using risk difference, risk ratio, odds ratio and Chi-square tests. Simple logistic regression will be discussed as a more flexible model for analysing binary outcomes, particularly when there is a continuous predictor. There will be lots of examples and practical sessions on analysis and interpretation of results.

Prerequisite: This course requires participants to have basic knowledge of statistics including understanding data types, outcomes types and summary statistics.
