Public health and healthcare delivery is constantly inundated with data from sources, including clinical trials, observational and longitudinal studies, genomics, and more. Having a firm grasp of the statistical computing skill-set can help you analyze this information effectively, and translate the flow of data into meaningful information that can inform decisions to improve the health of populations.
This program introduces students to statistical computing with focus on the SAS package. Emphasis is on manipulating data sets and basic statistical procedures such as t-tests, chi-square tests, and correlation.
Clearly written text and well-designed tables and figures enhance understanding; poorly written text and poorly designed tables and figures create confusion.
