Students discuss data sources, assessment of dependent and independent variables, measurement error, confounding, and bias. Students explore methodological issues in epidemiology, including factors critical to public health research, such as missing data, intermediate variables, confounding, complex study designs, meta-analysis, and questionnaire design. The course covers concepts and applications in survival analysis, analysis of incidence rates, life tables, and parametric and nonparametric approaches.
