by Johns Hopkins University

This course material is only available in the iTunes U app on iPhone or iPad.

Course Description

In this course, John McGready, MS, PhD, provides a broad overview of biostatistical methods and concepts used in the public health sciences, emphasizing interpretation and concepts rather than calculations or mathematical details. Develops ability to read the scientific literature to critically evaluate study designs and methods of data analysis. Introduces basic concepts of statistical inference, including hypothesis testing, p-values, and confidence intervals. Topics include comparisons of means and proportions; the normal distribution; regression and correlation; confounding; concepts of study design, including randomization, sample size, and power considerations; logistic regression; and an overview of some methods in survival analysis. Draws examples of the use and abuse of statistical methods from the current biomedical literature.

Very useful

Thank you Dr. McGready. I was not able to understand types of data (NOIR) but this course from iTunes U helped me immensely. I ended up subscribing the entire course! Thank you for sharing the lectures and the worksheets. Another good thing about this course is, it has short lectures (I tend to get bored in long statistics classes).

Thanks for the review

Terrific course, reviewed all the sections and finally understand the concepts. Wish section II was available on ITunes. Through the web I am finishing the course. Highly recommend.
