Advanced Data Analysis: Methods to Control for Confounding (FOCUS, Volume 4.1)

Fee:None
Length: 40 minutes
Description:This issue of FOCUS will explore logistic regression and accounting for matched data. Logistic regression is an efficient way to control for many potential confounders at one time. Matching, if done correctly in the study design stage of the investigation, reduces confounding before the analysis even begins.
