This course is intended for MS and MPH students in DPHS interested in the applied statistical methods for analysis of categorical data and correlated data. The categorical data analysis sessions include methods for stratified 2x2 and r x c contingency table data, ordinal data, matched pair dichotomous data, and count data. The correlated data analysis section covers random and mixed effects models and generalized linear models. The didactic classes are augmented by SAS and R sessions lead by the Teaching Assistants. At the completion of this course, students will have the tools to analyze these data using SAS and R, and make appropriate inferences from the analyses.
