This Applied Logistic Regression course provides theoretical and practical training for epidemiologists,
biostatisticians and professionals of related disciplines in statistical modeling with
particular emphasis on logistic regression.
The increasingly popular logistic regression model has become the standard method for regression analysis of binary response data in the health sciences.
By the end of this course, students should
Master methods of statistical modeling when the response variable is binary.
Be confident users of the Stata package for computing binary logistic regression
This is a hands-on, applied course where students will become proficient at using
computer software to analyze data drawn primarily from the fields of medicine,
epidemiology and public health.
There will be many practical examples and homework exercises in this class to help you learn. If you fully apply yourself in this course and complete all of the homework, you will have the opportunity to master various methods of statistical modeling and you will become a more confident user of the Stata* package for computing linear, polynomial and multiple regression.
*Access to Stata will be provided at no cost for the duration of this course.
This course was developed in partnership with the Centre Virchow-Villermé for Public Health Paris-Berlin, a bi-national centre of the Université Sorbonne Paris Cité and Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin. Special support was contributed from the Université Paris Descartes that also belongs to the community of Université Sorbonne Paris Cité.

I did a major in Econometrics at Monash University in or about 1970. I am in the process of revising and updating my knowledge in that area. the clarity of explanation of this basic material to be excellent.
