Welcome to Introduction to Statistics & Data Analysis in Public Health! This course will teach you the core building blocks of statistical analysis - types of variables, common distributions, hypothesis testing - but, more than that, it will enable you to take a data set you've never seen before, describe its keys features, get to know its strengths and quirks, run some vital basic analyses and then formulate and test hypotheses based on means and proportions. You'll then have a solid grounding to move on to more sophisticated analysis and take the other courses in the series. You'll learn the popular, flexible and completely free software R, used by statistics and machine learning practitioners everywhere. It's hands-on, so you'll first learn about how to phrase a testable hypothesis via examples of medical research as reported by the media. Then you'll work through a data set on fruit and vegetable eating habits: data that are realistically messy, because that's what public health data sets are like in reality. There will be mini-quizzes with feedback along the way to check your understanding. The course will sharpen your ability to think critically and not take things for granted: in this age of uncontrolled algorithms and fake news, these skills are more important than ever. Prerequisites Some formulae are given to aid understanding, but this is not one of those courses where you need a mathematics degree to follow it. You will need only basic numeracy (for example, we will not use calculus) and familiarity with graphical and tabular ways of presenting results. No knowledge of R or programming is assumed....



Was a very nicely done and clear course to build or re-build foundation for most common statistical concepts and an intro to using R via R-Studio for your work with them on the basics.


This is the best course among all I've taken..\n\nThe instructor has presented the content precisely.\n\nI highly recommend to those who are looking to explore R in the field of health

This is a great course for Introduction to Statistics & Data Analysis in Public Health. It covers all the necessary topics and provides a well designed learning structure.

by Bongi R


Challenging but very informative. Sometimes I was not clear on the concept but usually there was a discussion a couple of clicks away which elucidated things,

Buen curso, excelente cantidad de contenido. Creo que hay que tener un conocimiento mínimo de R. Me gustaron mucho los videos. Los ejercicios son excelentes.

Great course to start learning statistics in public health. I love the example data that are closely related to public health field. Thank you very much!

Good for me though I have done a fair amount of statistics previously. Still learnt useful nuggets to take away and it's getting me into using R.

by András K


The information is presented in a professional manner. However, these are far from reaching the level of an in-depth university course.

by Abhinav


a very good beginner's course for people who want to learn R for public health, i used the help of youtube with this course its v nice



If it's your first time learning statistics you'll love it. If it's not your first time, it's a great way of refreshing knowledge.

useful information however, the program was a bit tough to navigate for me, however once i figured it out it was smoother sailing

Very easy introduction to learn about statistics and to use the R system to get results from a database

by Paul F G


A good, general course for learning about public health and a little bit of the R programming language.

by Ainiah R R


I strongly enjoyed the refresher on how to apply the statistical tests with relevant data examples.

by Fidel G


The course will make your mind to spin as you try to get the correct answer to the questions.

A bit hard but very informative and required skills to learn through great professors.

by Maha


very interesting course for a beginner in statistics with R

by Tania K M


It was very interesting and amazing and very informative.

by Keming Z


More details regarding hypothesis test can be included.

by 王心怡


well,but i can't open the web about some assignment

by Suraj G


good curse but it should focus more on R skill

by Justin C


a brief introduction to statistical thinking

by Jamila K


amazing and very twisted course and helpful



really informative thank you

by sandeep d


great course

by David o


Quite good.

T​he course covered the basics of bio-statistics and using R for doing some of these statistics. But I found the lectures lacking in content related to what is to be learned. Most learning took place by taking tests, then referencing the internet to learn about the topics I got wrong. Many times what was asked in a test came later in learning material. Somehow feel the course could be better structured and more videos added to cover the topics asked in tests well as they are important.
