Analysis of Count Data in Medical and Social Sciences: An Application to Smoking Among Students
The goal of this webinar is to provide an introduction to count data regression models in the medical and social sciences. First of all, we will see what count data are and some examples analyzed in the literature. Second, we will introduce some of the most useful count data regression models, explaining their drawbacks and advantages. Simultaneously, we will see, using free statistical software, how to estimate these models, how to select the "best" model or models using various criteria, how to interpret the estimates, and how to report the results directly in word processor format. In short, the objective is to arouse in some of you the interest in this type of methodology and that you can implement it in the realization or direction of end-of-degree projects, doctoral theses and research articles.
