  • Medical Statistics (Part 2) - Correlation and Regression

    Attendees to this workshop must have attended Introduction to Medical Statistics – Part 1.

    This course looks at the methods of assessment and modelling linear relationships between quantitative variables. It starts with an explanation of correlation, and the correct and incorrect use of correlation coefficients in medical research studies is illustrated using several examples. Least squares linear regression is then covered, including some of the mathematical concepts behind the model fitting. Assessment of the model goodness-of-fit and predictions will be explained by working through an example of a real research study. The theory covered here forms the basis for more complex statistical modelling procedures which will be referred to, but not taught explicitly.

    Both correlation and regression modelling are simply implemented using Minitab and course participants will work through examples using data from the lecture.
