## Intro

Advanced Statistical Concepts is the third and final course in the three-course Statistics for Non-Statisticians knowledge track. This course builds upon Intermediate Statistical Concepts by introducing more complex concepts such as regression techniques, multifactorial analyses, interaction, confounding and adjusted analyses.

## What You'll Learn

• How to conduct a two-way analysis of variance (ANOVA), correlation, linear regression

• How to determine logistic regression and analysis of covariance

• How to engage with multiple regression, dummy variables, and confounding interpretations

This course consists of the following three modules:

1. ANOVA, Correlation and Linear Regression

2. Logistic Regression, Multiple Regression, Analysis of Covariance

3. Confounding

By the end of this course, learners will be able to:

✓ Carry out multi-factorial analyses with measured and/or categorical factors

✓ Identify the presence of interaction between factors and interpret results accordingly

✓ Use continuous measured factors to model measured and categorical outcomes

✓ Recognize the danger confounding when interpreting statistical findings and be able to detect its presence

## Who It's For

These courses are particularly relevant for researchers and academics who have limited experience working with statistical concepts.

## Get Prepared

We recommend you complete Basic Statistical Concepts and Intermediate Statistical Concepts before starting this online course.

This knowledge track explores PSPP, a free software application for the analysis of sampled data. We provide downloadable data sets for PSPP, so you can apply your skills within the application immediately.

This knowledge track also includes practical, interactive worksheets. To engage with the course fully, we recommend you use a laptop.
