Designing Valid Statistical Studies 072624

Begins 07/26/2024

Aim of Course:

This course covers the issues that need to be addressed in order for a study to produce statistically valid conclusions. The first session covers different study designs, with an emphasis on designs that can be used with observational data (clinical trials are reviewed briefly, but those seeking a more in depth treatment should take the Institute's sequence of courses in clinical trial design and analysis). Students will learn what types of bias and extraneous factors can endanger studies, and how to avoid or adjust for them.
