Description


Latent Class Analysis

Latent Class Analysis Poster

Description:

Latent class models are a powerful, flexible approach to finding and describing otherwise hidden and unknown subpopulations. They can provide key insights for etiology discovery and patient-oriented treatment when “one size” models are inadequate. Advances in statistical methodology and computational power have made it a viable tool of growing popularity. Applications include topics such as market segmentation, gambling and substance abuse risks, clinical depression, and emergency medicine. 

Location:

Room 207, Chown Building
753 McDermot Avenue
Winnipeg, Manitoba

Requirements:

Experience with latent modeling is not required, however knowledge of generalized linear regression modeling and categorical data analysis is recommended. Some familiarity with SAS or R may be an asset, but is not required.

About the Instructor: 

Brenden Dufault, MSc, is a full-time biostatistical consultant with the George and Fay Yee Centre for Healthcare Innovation with degrees in statistics and epidemiology. He has experience with the design and analysis of studies in clinical medicine, microbiology, immunology, public health, nursing, and psychology.
