Statistics IV: Linear regression: continuous outcomes (Via Webinar)
Date & Time
This is the fourth workshop in a 6-part statistics series.
NOTE: Due to the large # of statistical software available, this session will not be about any specific software but, rather, the methodology behind the software.
How to model the relationship between two quantitative variables by regression or correlation analysis is discussed. We expand the regression model to include additional predictor variables, including other quantitative variables (multiple regression) and categorical variables (ANCOVA).
The Applied Statistics and Data Science Group (ASDa; asda.stat.ubc.ca) in the UBC Department of Statistics provides assistance in the statistical formulation of research questions, the design of experiments and sampling plans for surveys, the choice and explanation of statistical methodology, statistical computing and graphics, statistical analysis, the interpretation of findings, and more. ASDa also plays a role in continuing education on and off the UBC campus, giving seminars and workshops on statistical concepts and methodology to various departments and research groups and at teaching hospitals.
Biljana Jonoska Stojkova. Biljana has been a statistical consultant with ASDa since June 2017. She has recently completed her PhD in Statistics at SFU, where she focused on developing Bayesian algorithms. During her studies she held numerous teaching assistant positions in introductory and high-level statistical courses.
Registration opens on Monday, January 22nd at 9:00am.
