## Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to  (1) design experiments and analyze the resulting data; (2) carry out supervised and unsupervised statistical analysis of categorical data (survival function estimation, Cox proportional hazard regression) using the R programming language.

## Subject of course

COURSE OUTLINE

I. Design of Experiments

• Components of an experiment, terms and concepts
• Completely randomized designs: Models, parameter estimation, contrasts, checking assumptions
• Multiple comparisons
• Power and sample size
• Fixed, random and mixed models, nesting
• Variance reduction designs: complete block design, latin square
1. Categorical Data Analysis
• Categorical data: nominal vs ordinal
• Two-way contingency tables
• Three-way contingency tables
• Logistic regression
2. Survival Analysis
• Time to event data and censoring
• The survival and the hazard functions
• Survival function estimation
• Cox proportional-hazards regression model

## Teaching methods

### Three reference books are used:

• DOE: A First Course in Design and Analysis of Experiments by Oehlert; Fundamental Concepts in the Design of Experiments , Fifth Edition by Hicks and Turner.
• Categorical Data: An Introduction to Categorical Data Analysis , Second Edition by Agresti (available online at the TU Library)

• Survival Analysis: Applied Survival Analysis , Second Edition by Hosmer, Lemeshow and May (available online at the TU Library)
