BACKGROUND Regression analysis is an important statistical method for the analysis of medical data. It enables the identification and characterization of relationships among multiple factors. It also enables the identification of prognostically relevant risk factors and the calculation of risk scores for individual prognostication. METHODS This article is based on selected textbooks of statistics, a selective review of the literature, and our own experience. RESULTS After a brief…

Part 9 of a Series on Evaluation of Scientific Publications

The topics dealt with in this article include the effect of sample size on the length of the confidence interval and the p-value, and also inaccuracies caused by measuring error.

Survival analysis: part 15 of a series on evaluation of scientific publications.

If survival times are analyzed without the use of special techniques, or if the underlying assumptions are not taken into account, faulty interpretation may result and readers of scientific publications should know these pitfalls and be able to judge for themselves whether the chosen analytical method is correct.

Review of guidance papers on regression modeling in statistical series of medical journals

Assessment of the current level of knowledge with regard to regression modeling contained in statistical papers found many misconceptions or misleading recommendations, but relevant gaps were identified with respect to addressing nonlinear effects of continuous predictors, model specification and variable selection.

Review of Regression Analysis Models

This work mainly focuses on the different Regression Analysis models used nowadays and how they are used in context of different data sets.

Regression Analysis of Large Research Data: Dimensional Reduction Techniques

The analytical article analyzes the best form of regression analysis for large research data using dimensional reduction techniques through R programming when research data present multicollinearity

Generalized Beta Regression to Elicit Conditional Distributions of Medical Variables

A Generalized Beta regression is proposed where parameter elicitation is performed by establishing a correspondence among measured values expressed as relative positions within intervals with a clinical interpretation, regardless of the original scales of variables.

Comparison of Biological Age Prediction Models Using Clinical Biomarkers Commonly Measured in Clinical Practice Settings: AI Techniques Vs. Traditional Statistical Methods

Through this work, it is confirmed that AI techniques such as the DNN model outperformed traditional statistical methods in predicting biological age.

Re-orientation and simple understanding of regression analysis for student nurses: When and why to use

A present narrative review on regression analysis has been structured by reviewing E-literature, textbooks, unpublished information and practical experience of authors to be useful to the researchers to be updated with more practical information and a needful application of the same.

Descriptive statistics: Measures of central tendency, dispersion, correlation and regression

Large data obtained from research are subjected to statistical analysis so that outcomes can be extrapolated to the larger population. Towards this end, such large data have to be consolidated into



Missing data in randomised controlled trials: a practical guide

A principled approach to handling missing data in clinical trials is proposed, and how this principled approach can be practically, and directly, applied to the majority of trials with longitudinal follow-up is outlined.

The Environment and Disease: Association or Causation?

  • A. B. Hill
  • Philosophy
    Proceedings of the Royal Society of Medicine
  • 1965
This paper contrasts Bradford Hill’s approach with a currently fashionable framework for reasoning about statistical associations – the Common Task Framework – and suggests why following Bradford Hill, 50+ years on, is still extraordinarily reasonable.
