Jason
Newsom's
USP 654 Data Analysis II

Description
This
course takes an applied approach to statistical analysis and research
methodology and is the second in a twocourse sequence. The goal is to
provide students with statistical background, conceptual understanding,
technical writing skills, computer application, and the ability to apply
these skills to realistic data analysis problems and research designs. Topics
include simple regression and correlation, multiple regression, and logistic
regression. The laboratory (USP 654L) must be taken concurrently. Recommended
prerequisite: USP 634 Data Analysis or an equivalent course approved by the
instructor and prior experience with statistical software. All download files pdf unless otherwise noted.
