 *******************************************************************


      Generalized Linear Models / Generalized Estimating Equations (GEE)
             a Practical Approach  (Intermediate SAS)
             Includes Logistic and Poisson Regression

     This two-day workshop covers generalized linear models, which can be
used when the response variable is binary, a count variable or even
continuous.  Normal linear regression, Poisson regression and logistic
regression are special cases of this method.
     The workshop covers models for cross-sectional data, as well as
models for repeated measures, longitudinal, or clustered data using GEE
(generalized estimating equations).  A single SAS program, Proc Genmod,
can be used for all these types of data.
     Instruction emphasizes when to use each method, and interpretation of
coefficients and SAS output.  Participants attend morning lecture
sessions, and afternoon computer sessions using SAS on real data sets.
Instructors:   JULIE HORROCKS is a Statistical Consultant and
               Assistant Research Scientist at CSCAR.
               KATHY WELCH is a Statistical Consultant and
               primary SAS consultant for CSCAR.
Audience:      Researchers in applied fields which deal with data
               suitable for generalized linear models.
Prerequisite:  Introductory statistics, familiarity with multiple
               regression, experience with SAS or any other
               statistical software, experience with computers
               running Windows.
Provisions:    Enrollees receive lecture notes, a bibliography, and
               example computer package commands and output.
               Morning refreshments provided.
When:          Tuesday and Wednesday, May 16-17, 2000, 8:30 am - 4:00 pm.
Where:         Morning Lecture: 3040 School of Public Health I, 109 S.
               Observatory (at E. Medical Ctr. Dr.), University of
               Michigan.
               Afternoon Lab: Computing Classroom A, School of Public
               Health II, University of Michigan.
Size:          Maximum of 22 participants, one per computer.
Fee:           $400 ($175 for current University of Michigan faculty,
               staff and students).
Late Registration Fee:  Late fee does not apply for this workshop.
Registration:  Call CSCAR Workshop Registration at (734) 763-0341 and
               complete payment as soon as possible.


**********   Determining Sufficient Sample Size   **********
This four-hour workshop outlines how to calculate an appropriate sample
size (n) to address the objectives of a research project.  (This workshop
does not cover survey research designs.)  Participants are led through
essential steps for the design stage: choosing an outcome variable and
refining the study question, outlining hypothesis tests, determining power
to detect particular differences, assessing the effect of nuisance
parameters, and balancing these considerations to arrive at a final sample
size.  Those enrolled will work in a computer classroom, using PASS and
nQuery Advisor software to compute sample sizes and plot power curves.
Enrollment is limited to 22 per section. Instructors:   Brenda Gillespie,
Associate Director of CSCAR and Assistant Professor of Biostatistics, and
Myra Kim, Staff Consultant for CSCAR and Adjunct Assistant Professor of
Biostatistics. When:          Monday, May 22, 2000, 1:00 - 5:00 p.m Where:
        Computer Classroom A, School of Public Health II,
               University of Michigan.
Fee:           $175  (U. Michigan affiliated: $85).
Late Registration Fee:  $30, applies after May 16.
Registration:  Call CSCAR Workshop Registration at (734) 763-0341 and
complete payment by May 16.


********** Applied Survival Analysis, Event History Analysis,
                      and Reliability Analysis *********
These three labels have been given to statistical methods for the analysis
of time-to-event data by various disciplines (biostatistics, social
science, and engineering, respectively); the statistical methods are
similar across all these fields.  This one-day workshop covers basic
concepts of censored and right-censored data, and methods for estimating
survival and hazard functions, comparing two or more survivor
distributions, regression analyses (Cox, Weibull, etc.), and discrete
models (logistic, Poisson). Instructors:   Brenda Gillespie, Associate
Director of CSCAR and Assistant Professor of Biostatistics, and Myra Kim,
Staff Consultant for CSCAR and Adjunct Assistant Professor of
Biostatistics. When:          Monday and Tuesday, June 12-13 2000, 1:00 -
5:00 p.m. Where:         3001 School of Public Health I, University of
Michigan. Fee:           $325  (U. Michigan affiliated: $150). Late
Registration Fee:  $40, applies after June 6. Registration:  Call CSCAR
Workshop Registration at (734) 763-0341 and complete payment by June 6.
