Analytical Methods For Categorical Outcome Using STATA (8:00 AM)


November 24-28, 2014

Last date of registration – Nov 10, 2014

About the course

Dealing with categorical dependent variable in analytical epidemiology involves the use of statistical methods that are different from those traditionally used. In particular, the application of logistic regression requires the understanding of intricacies, concepts and interpretation that are different from a linear regression that most of us are familiar with. This workshop is intended to provide a sound grounding in analytical techniques surrounding categorical outcomes and adequate skills to perform such analyses using STATA. This workshop will cover key issues surrounding the principles and application of logistic regression including fundamentals such as cross-tabulation, chi-square test and odds ratios. Participants applying to this workshop are expected to have knowledge in basic biostatistics.

At the end of workshop, participants will gain theoretical insights and applied skills to address research questions involving categorical dependent variable. S/he will be confident to use STATA to conduct more advanced statistical work on their own data.

Contents

  • Brief review of statistical and epidemiologic concepts
  • Exploratory analysis: producing tables and descriptive statistics (Chi-square and McNemar’s test)
  • Odds and Odds ratio, stratified analysis (Mantel-Haenszel Test)
  • Logistic regression (simple and multiple) and interpretation of coefficients
  • Conditional logistic regression
  • Interaction effects
  • Fitting and evaluating models
  • Introduction to multinomial logistic regression

Registration Fee:

Indian National: 12000 INR per participant;
Foreign National: 24000 INR per participant
Accommodation (Optional):5000 INR per Indian/ Foreign participant for five days hostel accommodation (Double occupancy (Non-AC) including breakfast and dinner)
