SFASA is proud to host a short course Applied Logistic Regression sponsored by ASA.

Applied Logistic Regression (Instructor: Prof. Stanley Lemeshow)


Medical research increasingly depends on quantitative approaches, while physiciansÕ decision making is becoming strictly based on the evidence of quantified data. Coupled with newly developed methodology such as lasso for high-dimensional data, the logistic regression model has become increasingly popular in health sciences and the standard method in handling binary data. It has also been widely used in other analytically complex problems.

Targeting for statisticians, data scientists and professionals of related disciplines, this intermediate level course aims to provide not only basic theoretical concept and practical training in statistical modeling with particular emphasis on logistic regression using illustrative examples, but also in-depth understanding of this mostly used technique.

Reference textbook: Applied Logistic Regression, 3rd edition by Hosmer, Lemeshow and Sturdivant.
