Course Objectives

The key objective is that by the end this course the students will know how to run their own epidemiological analysis effectively using Stata for a variety of outcomes by using 2x2 tables and/or regression models, decided on the most appropriate way to report the results supplied by Stata 

Understand the bio-statistical concepts of additivity, independence, confounding, and interaction in the context of logistic models.
