Statement of Purpose
The Biostatistics & Evaluation Division of the Center is celebrated for its efforts to improve health and health care research, the teaching of biostatistics and data science and the evaluation of health and health care. Members apply statistical thinking and the methods of data science, broadly, to extract and build knowledge regarding problems of health and disease, often surrounding issues of health access, outcomes (including cost) and quality. The Division is well-supported by local and regional partners, and collaborates with a wide network of project teams. Major problems we study include:
1. Improving the quality of study designs and data analyses in the study of health.
2. Improving the measurement of disparities, health status and related concepts
3. Overcoming concerns involved in using large data from electronic health records and other sources to improve the health of the public
