This course will provide an introduction to statistical concepts with an emphasis on the use of techniques commonly employed in health economics and outcomes research. Faculty will begin by defining statistics, then introducing the concept of random variables and probability before proceeding to discuss the foundations of statistical inference (estimation and the testing of hypotheses). This is followed by bootstrapping, statistics in cost-effectiveness analysis and generalized linear modeling (for cost and utility outcomes). The differences between a classical (frequentist) approach to statistics and a Bayesian view of probability will also be outlined. This course is intended for participants with little (or rusty!) statistical training.
