Course objectives

The intent of the course is to give participants thorough knowledge of the statistical tools necessary to make the right decisions when:

  • planning studies of occupational exposures and health effects
  • assessing exposure and/or health effects
  • assigning exposure estimates for epidemiological use
  • analysing exposure-response relationships

Main topics

  • Design and planning of the study
  • Data quality
  • Quantitative exposure assessment
  • Time series, longitudinal data analyses, linear/logistic mixed models
  • Associations between exposures and health outcomes
  • Use of multiple exposure parameter and multiple response parameters

Target group

  • Researchers and reviewers in the field of occupational exposure and health

Subject background

In order to elucidate the exposure-response relationships in the occupational health field, there is a need for more research that includes exposure and health effect measurements in the same study.

Thorough planning and use of proper statistics in such studies will contribute in bringing the field to the research front and have large impact on the working health. (Regular) courses in the statistical tools are necessary to achieve this.
