Graduate Pathways to Success

Registration Closed / Past Event


This is the fifth 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 compare two groups when the response is binary or count data. What happens if we have more than two groups or more than one predictor whether numeric or categorical. We talk about logistic, Poisson and negative binomial regression analysis with an introduction to generalized linear models and show how to interpret the model coefficients in each case.

The Applied Statistics and Data Science Group (ASDa; 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.


This session is presented by professional staff from the Applied Statistics and Data Science Group. These staff bring a range of health and wellness knowledge, and experience supporting graduate student research projects.
