Inhalt Description: The lecture focuses on practical examples, based on datasets from epidemiological studies. Exercises are designed to teach students how to carry out the major steps of an epidemiological analysis project. Regression analyses, including classical, logistic and survival models, will constitute the core of the lectures. Additional topics such as random effects, repeated measures and other topics will also be included. All exercises will be solved using STATA, but students may use other software if they are familiar with it. Students are encouraged to bring in their own problems for discussion.

General modelling issues
Linear regression
Random effect models
Logistic regression
Repeated measures
Survival analysis
Introduction to causal inference
Lernziele Students develop practical skills in conducting regression analyses and in describing and presenting their results. Based on concrete scientific questions, they can devise analysis plans and carry out the respective analyses correctly.
