IBM SPSS - Intermediate: Logistic Regression and Survival Analysis
This course builds on the skills taught in the introductory courses as well as on the workshop about correlation and regression. It covers a regression technique that is appropriate for statistical analyses when the dependent variable of interest is dichotomous. Also analysis of time to event data is introduced. Although this course is aimed to be practically orientated with extensive use of the IBM SPSS statistical package, theoretical considerations related to selection of an appropriate statistical test as well as assumptions involved are addressed.
This course is under great demand. If your circumstances change and you cannot attend, please cancel your enrolment as quickly as possible.
