They 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 concepts and applications in survival analysis, analysis of incidence rates, life tables, and parametric and nonparametric approaches are covered in this course.
