PUB HLTH 4074 - Introduction to Biostatistics

North Terrace Campus - Semester 1 - 2016

Biostatistics is the application of statistical methods (summarising data and drawing valid inferences based on limited information) to biological systems, more particularly, to humans and their health problems. This course deals with statistical concepts and terminology and basic analytic techniques. The purpose of the course is to give public health and occupational health workers an introduction to the discipline, an appreciation of a statistical perspective on information arising from the health arena and basic critical appraisal skills to enable graduates to assess the quality of research evidence.
