### Reviews

The course focuses on Bayesian analyses using the PHREG, GENMOD, and MCMC procedures. The examples include logistic regression, Cox proportional hazards model, general linear mixed model, zero-inflated Poisson model, and data containing missing values. A Bayesian analysis of a crossover design and a meta-analysis are also shown.

The self-study e-learning includes:

• Annotatable course notes in PDF format.
• Virtual lab time to practice.

## Skills Gained

• Explain the concepts of Bayesian analysis.
• Illustrate Bayesian analyses in PROC GENMOD, PROC PHREG, and PROC MCMC.
• Incorporate prior distributions in a Bayesian analysis.
• Illustrate a Bayesian analysis approach to a meta-analysis.

## Who Can Benefit

• Biostatisticians, epidemiologists, and social scientists who are interested in the Bayesian analysis approach

## Prerequisites

• Before attending this course, you should:
• Be able to create SAS data sets and manipulate data. You can gain this experience from the SAS® Programming 2: Data Manipulation Techniques course.
• Have completed a statistics course such as the Statistics 1: Introduction to ANOVA, Regression, and Logistic Regression or Statistics 2: ANOVA and Regression course.
